Ear candy! Scarlett Johansson is now a part of a girl group called The Singles, and the band released its first single on Friday, Feb. 20.
Called “Candy,” the track is the debut number by Johansson and her band, which includes Julia Haltigan, Kendra Morris, The Jealous Girlfriends’ Holly Miranda, and Haim sister/Taylor Swift pal Este Haim.
The poppy tune features a Robyn-esque electronic backtrack and sweet lyrics of, “Boy, you got me craving sweets again / Cause boy, my tooth be aching for your skin / Boy, you’ve got me in the mood for love / Cause boy, you’re my chocolate from above / You’re the candy to my heart / Ooh, candy to my heart.”
“The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls,” Johansson, 30, told Rolling Stone of the single. “I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra-pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke.”
This is hardly Johansson’s first foray into music. The Lucy actress released a solo studio album Anywhere I Lay My Head in 2008, and went on to collaborate with Pete Yorn for 2009’s Break Up.
