Britney Spears is feeling pretty Smurfy these days.

The pop princess phoned in to On Air With Ryan Seacrest Monday morning to dish about her new single from the Smurfs 2 soundtrack, "Ooh La La," which officially premiered on the program.

When asked about the song, which Ryan tweeted is already "trending no. 1 in the United States!," Spears called it "straight-up pop" that is a good fit for the animated movie's kiddie audience.

"It has a young feel to it," she told Seacrest. "But the main reason why I did it was because my boys [Sean Preston and Jayden]. 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."

The Britster went on to talk about her sons' cameo in the music video as well as the meaning of the song's title.

"I think it doesn't really certainly mean a certain phrase or anything, but it's about feeling good," Spears commented. "Like you make me feel like 'ooh la la,' like when a guy makes you giddy…it's more of a feeling."

Regarding rumors she's booked a headlining residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, the "Toxic" singer didn't exactly deny them, saying "it's quite possible, yes, [but] nothing's confirmed yet."

Spears also revealed she's begun work on her eighth studio album, which she noted will take a "new approach" and be "a little different than anything I've ever done."

Britney additionally announced she's collaborating with the Black Eyed Peas' frontman on it as well as Madonna's producer, William Orbit.

"Will has a lot of really interesting different tracks that I've listened to that are really cool that I haven't actually written on yet, but there's a lot of guitar and I think people will be surprised with this album. It's gong to be really different," said Spears, adding that she hopes to have the record out "by the end of the year."
