Actress VANESSA HUDGENS is reviving her music career by releasing a single inspired by her new movie SPRING BREAKERS.
The former High School Musical star, whose last album hit shelves in 2008, has debuted dance track $$$ex - a nod to her latest film, in which she plays one of four college girls gone bad.

In a post on her blog, Hudgens writes, "It's been a while since I've released a track, so I'm so excited to share this with y'all (sic)! Last night I spent some time recording in the studio w/ (with producing team) Rock Mafia & YLA!
