Hey! Hi! Are you in the mood to hear a new Britney Spears song but not super psyched about hearing it on a silly old album? Would you rather it be part of the soundtrack of a movie about fictional blue creatures? Well A. that’s extremely specific, and you’re pretty weird, and B. have I got some news for you! Britney released a song today called ‘Ooh La La’, and it’s coming straight off the soundtrack for The Smurfs 2! Can you believe it? You’re getting exactly what you wanted, all tied up in a pretty little package.
Before you listen to it, I will warn you that it’s not the most original song in the world right now. As I mentioned a month ago when I previewed it, a lot of the notes are kind of the same, which is convenient if you like music but don’t have the money to buy a lot of different notes, and inconvenient if you like…music. Basically, if you like Britney Spears, then you’ll love this new Britney Spears song, and if you don’t, you won’t. Isn’t that pretty much how things work these days? And also anytime ever? Here’s what Britney tweeted out today to announce the song’s release:

It’s honestly not that bad, right? Considering the long road toward a comeback that Britney is still slogging down, I feel like this could be a lot worse. It’s nice that she did a song that she thought her kids would like, and that it’s not a complete throwaway just because it’s on a soundtrack. It’s not the best, but it’s not terrible. All things considered, it could be a lot worse. As Britney said in a press release:
“I have always loved the Smurfs as a kid and now my boys are the biggest Smurfs fans EVER. I wanted to surprise them with a song in the movie. I know they’ll think it’s Smurftastic!”
I don’t know about Smurftastic just yet, but it’s a step in the right direction.
