A buwan to petsa after it leaked online, Britney Spears' bubblegummy single "Ooh La La" was officially released Monday morning on Ryan Seacrest's radio show.
The song is Spears' contribution to the upcoming soundtrack for "The Smurfs" and will play over the end credits when the movie hits theaters July 31.
