Britney Spears’ new music video for her single “Ooh La La” has debuted. The song was written and performed for the upcoming movie Smurfs 2.
Unlike many of her former hits, the pop superstar creates a family friend song that features her sons Jayden Jaymes, 6, and Sean Preston, 7.
Appearing on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, Spears explains bringing her sons to the music video set and then using them in the video:
“[My sons] were actually really, really good on set. They play themselves… [but when] we did the actual shoot of the video I didn’t see [them]. I was in hair and makeup, so later on I got to see what they actually did on camera and it was adorable.”
Britney Spears tells Seacrest that she only agreed to contribute a track to Smurfs 2 because of her young boys:
“They’re obsessed with the Smurfs. We’ve seen ‘The Smurfs’ movie a million trillion times, and they were told they could be in the video and all this cool stuff, so that’s the reason why I did it.”
Before the music video was revealed, Britney Spears sent out an Instagram in which she watches the Smurfs 2 with her sons.
Remember when everyone questioned whether Britney Spears could be a good role model and mom to her boys? We don’t know what goes on behind closed doors, but her desire to pivot her music to fit her boys tastes isn’t a bad sign of her role as a mom.

So what do you thin? Does Britney Spears have a career in the positive music business? In the meantime, I’ll be waiting for her next “Toxic” or “Hit Me Baby One More Time” type song to debut.
