Songwriter Britney Spears[/uuid]’ new track Ooh La La had to be toned down in order to make it more “kid friendly.”
The song features in the new Smurfs 2 movie, but McKee says the tune was “originally pretty sexy.”
She told MTV News US: "I actually came in and was the doctor behind it. A lot of it was already written. It was a great song to begin with.
“They wanted it for the 'Smurfs' movie, and it was originally pretty sexy. I was like, 'OK, how do I take this sex-drenched song and make it Smurfs friendly?'”
Ooh La La features writing and production credits from the likes of Dr. Luke, Ammo and Cirkut, and even has the voice of Smurfette Katy Perry contributing some secret backing vocals.
McKee said of reworking the lyrics: "That was kind of my task, but it still had to work at radio and be something that people would buy as a Britney Spears song because she's not a Smurf."
"So, it was just kind of fun to find double entendres to put in there and kind of trick the parents into thinking it's kid friendly."
McKee said of Spears: "She's still a beautiful, sexy, fierce woman in charge, so we had to keep some of the teeth in the song but still make it parent friendly and kid friendly."
