Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that "Without You" is a very clean single in terms of profanity and references to sex, substances, or violence. That said, the lyrics tell the tale of a person who's so devastated over a break-up that he claims he can't go on: "I can't accept that we're estranged ... If you're not here, I'm paralyzed without you / Lost my heart, I lost my mind, without you." It's not the best message for younger kids who are still figuring out what it means to be in a relationship.
What's the story?
"WITHOUT YOU" is a single from the first full-length album by superstar DJ David Guetta. Featuring guest vocals from smooth R&B crooner Usher, this song is about refusing to accept that a romance has ended and not wanting to live without the other person.
Is it any good?
Usher adds musical fire to nearly everything he touches, and "Without You" is no exception. The singer once again gives a top-notch vocal performance which, added to Guetta's celestial-sounding synth hook, makes this track among the more appealing in Guetta's repertoire.
