Smurftastic! Britney Spears is the latest pop icon to join the Smurfs franchise.

She has recorded a new song, Ooh La La, that will play over the end credits of The Smurfs 2, the sequel to 2011’s $142.6 million-grossing live action/animated film, out July 31. The track was written by Lukasz Gottwald (Dr. Luke), Joshua Coleman (Ammo), Henry Walter (Cirkut), Bonnie McKee, Jacob Kasher Hindlin (J Kash), Lola Blanc and Fransisca Hall and produced by Dr. Luke, Ammo and Cirkut.

Remember that surprise song I recorded for my boys? It’s coming soon! #OohLaLa for #TheSmurfs2 :) Stay tuned for more …” Spears tweeted Wednesday morning.

In a media release, she said, “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.”

And that other smurfy pop star, Katy Perry? She’s reprising her role as the voice of Smurfette.
