Listen, Britney Spears has two young sons, so it makes sense that she’d want to get cool mom cred by doing a song for an animated film. While I’m not sure The Smurfs hold any cool points past 1992, BritBrit has released ‘Ooh La La’, which will appear on the Smurfs 2 soundtrack. First of all, why is there a Smurfs 2? Why was there a Smurfs 1 (so to speak) to begin with?
The song is absolutely horrendous, I have to say. The vocal effects on this make it seem like something out of a weird Japanese nightmare and it’s just all wrong. The chorus finds Britney – or a pack of computerized robots, who can say?) – imploring, “Baby come with me and be my ooh la la”. What does that even mean? I know what it’s trying to mean – I’m not an imbecile – but just… no.
Have a listen below and leave your thoughts in the comments, though I expect they’ll all be something like “lalajdflajsldkf;wlkereo;a” after your head hits the keyboard repeatedly as you beg it to stop.
