Up until now I haven’t been the biggest fan of “Ooh La La” but after watching the clip, I’ve somewhat come around. Watching a glowing Britney Spears hang with cute Smurfs and her even cuter sons Sean Preston and Jayden James is too hard to resist. Even though the Marc Klasfeld-directed clip is on the simple side (it is for a kids movie after all), you simply can’t hate on it even if you tried. Not only does Brit look Smurftastic but she actually seems happy too. She’s one proud momma.
Britney revealed that her sons “were really, really good on set,” adding, “They were, like, acting, and my oldest son, Preston, was right on cue every time they would tell him to do something. Later on, I got to see what they actually did on camera and it was adorable.”
Spears begins the clip sitting in a theater with her boys. She magically then transports to the Smurf Village where she rocks out with Smurfette and the crew. Naturally, footage from Smurfs 2 is incorporated in the visual. After all, the track is meant to drive business to the sequel hitting theaters on July 31. Check out the too cute vid below.
Britney Spears and India.Arie couldn’t be more polar opposites. One loves SLASH relies on post-production *wink* while the other favors more stripped-down acoustic arrangements. Both ladies dropped new lyric videos recently and rather than make separate posts, I decided to clump them together. A little lazy on my part, I admit.
At this point, a lyric video for “Ooh La La” is pointless. I’m absolutely certain that all hardcore Brit fans already know the lyrics to the Smurfs 2 track. Just in case you didn’t, Spears has you now covered. Her clip is pretty standard with colorful and playful fonts and graphics floating about. It’s totes cute ;)
Arie’s is also nothing ground-breaking, but there’s something oddly riveting about it. It’s a perfect visual for the moving and inspirational track. If you haven’t checked out SongVersation which dropped this week, you simply should. “I Am Light” is only scratching at the surface of India’s artistry. For those who simply thought I wrote about the neo-soul singer due to an ad buy on the site earlier this week, here’s proof that I actually do adore her. Learn the lyrics to both tracks below.
Not too long ago, we got our first listen to Britney Spears‘ “Ooh La La” song, recorded for the soundtrack to the upcoming smurftastic sequel, The Smurfs 2. Since it was leaked, it was removed pretty much everywhere online faster than you can say Gargamel.
Today, the song is offically out and it’s being released on iTunes tomorrow, coupled with another song from the soundtrack called “Vacation” by a group named G.R.L. (aka the NEW Pussycat Dolls lineup!) The song was written by Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Bonnie McKee and Henry Walter, and produced by Dr. Luke, Max Martin and Cirkut. McKee also wrote “Ooh La La,” while Luke, Martin and Cirkut produced it.
The soundtrack to the movie features other artists that include Nelly Furtado, Owl City, Right Said Fred, and more. I’ve included “Ooh La La” and “Vacation” for you to listen to below, as well as the tracklist for the soundtrack. Enjoy!
Back in January, Britney Spears teased that she was heading to the studio to record a song for her boys. We finally get to hear the fruits of that labor. “Ooh La La” is lifted off the Smurfs 2 soundtrack. Clearly, the track isn’t intended as a club banger or even a radio-friendly single. This one is for the kids ya’ll. With that being said, I’m sure die hard Brit fans are going to eat this up and proclaim it as the second coming.
