Backing track stuttering while recording vocals

Hi everyone, I’m at my wits’ end here. I’m new to this and slowly losing my mind. I have captured an instrumental backing track using Voicemeeter and Audacity (3.3.3). If I play the track it plays with no issues. Once I try to record vocals, the backing track skips intermittently and totally screws up the sync of the vocals. I am using a Blue Snowball iCE USB mic as input and Razer BlackShark headset as output. As far as I can tell I have everything set to 44100 Hz, 16 bit both in Audacity and Windows setting. The backing track is recorded in stereo at 44100 Hz, 16 bit and the vocals I’m recording as mono. I feel like this should be really simple, but nothing I try works. If I try to record the vocals and backing track through Voicemeeter at the same time, there is a slight delay on the mic (from the USB connection I’m sure) and the final track sounds terrible. I really hope someone can help, thanks in advance.
