Vanessa Hudgens could be the big breakout star from Spring Breakers.

Vanessa Hudgens, who has emerged as a confident, super sexy actress following “Spring Breakers,” may ultimately be the film’s breakout star. She hit the studio after four years to record a party anthem inspired by the racy movie.

The is song suitably called “$$$ex.” In a new video, it’s the background music to a series of scenes from the movie.

“It’s been a while since I’ve released a track, so I’m so excited to share this with y’all!” she wrote on her blog. “Last night I spent some time recording in the studio w/ Rock Mafia & YLA!”

”Here it is: “$$$ex” – Vanessa Hudgens feat YLA!!”

Her second second studio album, Identified, was released in 2008 on the heels of her “High School Musical” success. But it was poorly promoted and flopped. She split with her Disney-owned label soon after.

Hudgens, 24, has been focusing on her film career for the last four years with pictures such as 2011’s “Sucker Punch” and “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” with Dwayne Johnson and Josh Hutcherson. This year she has three films on tap beside “Spring Breakers.”

She’ll be appearing in “Gimme Shelter,” “The Frozen Ground” and a Robert Rodriguez chop-chop sequel to 2010’s “Machete.” All three are in post-production. She’ll also reprise her role in another “Journey” sequel.

Her film work has obscured somewhat that Hudgens has a musical background. As a Disney teen-queen she starred in three highly successful “High School Musical” films as well as “Bandslam.”

While Selena Gomez has gotten most of the publicity for “Spring Breakers,” Hudgens may emerge as the breakout star. She’s displayed a sassy, insouciant sexuality during promotion for the film and her personality is infectious.

In recent photo spreads in Cosmopolitan and Paper magazines, she lit up the pages with her sextastic glow.

“Spring Breakers” has grossed more than $8 million since its wide release on Mar. 22, easily recouping its $2 million production cost.
