Britney Spears Gets Ready For ‘Ooh La La’


Hankering for some new music from Britney Spears? You’re in luck; she’s confirmed her Dr. Luke-produced “Smurfs 2” track, “Ooh La La,” is premiering Monday.

The track was leaked back in May, but it will finally get an official spin on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM radio show, she announced on Thursday.

In addition to working with Luke on the up-tempo, family-friendly track, Spears also hit the studio with Ammo and Cirkut as well as Bonnie McKee, J Kash, Lola Blanc and Fransisca Hall.

Just last week, Spears tweeted out what appeared to be a still from the Marc Klasfeld-directed video for the track. Not much is known about the clip, but it seems like two “Smurfs” fans will be particularly excited when it’s released: Spears’ sons, Jayden and Sean. “My boys’ dream is about to come true!” she tweeted on Thursday. “Wait until ya’ll see the #OohLaLaVideo Nobody loves The Smurfs more than my boys…. :)”

In addition to her work on the soundtrack, Spears has also been hitting the studio to record songs for her follow-up to 2011’s Femme Fatale, which is being executive produced by her pal will.i.am. It’s rumored that in addition to the Black Eyed Peas frontman, she’s also worked with the likes of William Orbit, Naughty Boy and Hit-Boy.
