Britney Spears – “Ooh La La” New Single

smurf-art-britney-spears-oohlalaBritney Spears’ new single Ooh La La for The Smurfs 2 soundtrack has made its way onto the internet. The song is written by Dr. Luke and Bonnie McKee. The production is typical Dr. Luke repeating himself as it sounds like something that would’ve been on Ke$ha’s album. It also contains some of Bonnie’s vocals layered with Britney’s.

There’s not much to the song but it’s nice to listen to. The chorus has a strong melody which reminds me a bit of Madonna’s Superstar from the way the “ooh la la” parts are sung.

Listen to Ooh La La below:

Edit: Britney confirmed via Twitter that this is only the demo:

@britneyspears: I heard an early demo of #OohLaLa smurfed its way onto the internet today :( The real version will be at radio and iTunes June 16th :)

Edit: This “early demo” turned out to be identical to the final version.

The Saturdays have released a teaser for the music video for their new single Gentleman.

While the teaser doesn’t give away much, it’s very colourful and looks like it’s going to be as comical as some of the lyrics in the song.

The full video for Gentleman will premiere next Thursday May 23rd on VEVO.

Carly Rae Jepsen – “Take A Picture” New Single

Published May 16th 2013

tapCarly Rae Jepsen performed her new single Take A Picture on American Idol last night. The lyrics of the song were voted for by fans as part of Coca-Cola’s Perfect Harmony campaign.

Take A Picture is being released during the campaign for Tonight I’m Getting Over You but it isn’t really an issue since the latter is struggling to make an impact. Take A Picture is a very light-hearted, electro pop song with not much to it except the chorus is quite catchy. The “tonight” ad-libs towards the end remind me of Enrique Iglesias’ Escape.

For something voted by fans, the lyrics aren’t as bad as they could’ve been. However, I can’t see this single fairing well if even the amazing Tonight I’m Getting Over You is barely doing anything.

You can listen to Take A Picture below:

Take A Picture is the first single from Carly’s upcoming third studio album.
