After dropping a number of indie releases over the years, actress Scarlett Johansson has gone sweet, sweet pop.

On "Sugar," Johansson trades in Pete Yorn for The Singles, a supergroup featuring Holly Miranda, Julie Haltigan, and Kendra Morris. Este Haim, the oldest of the Haim sister's, guests on the song, momentarily trading her bass for a drum set.

"The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls," Johansson said in a press release, naming Grimes and The Go-Go's as major influences on The Singles' synth-heavy sound.
