A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

The song's strong sexual message isn't negative, just mature.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The sexuality isn't something you'd want younger kids to copy.


Lots of directly sexual and heavily suggestive lyrics: "And I know you be getting so horny / 'Cause you be sending me texts like, boy, just get your ass up in that car / And come get all of this love." Also, "she'll be waiting on me naked with one of my chains on."




Mentions of iPhone, Nuvo.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

One reference to "drinking all night."

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that "5 O'Clock" is a super-steamy single about a girl who summons her guy home from the club so they can "go crazy" in the bedroom. Though it lacks profanity aside from the world "ass," the song's sexual descriptions are fairly detailed, and "drinking all night" is also mentioned.

5 o'clock in the morning

it really isn't that bad qaulity wise but it is very sexual.theres some pretty graphic talk about "going crazy in the bedroom" as the song puts i...

What's the story?

Two big-name rappers and one pop star team up in "5 O'CLOCK," a tune by T-Pain, Wiz Khalifa, and Lily Allen. In this sultry single, a woman goes to bed before her man makes it back from the club, but once he gets home, the two meet in the bedroom and proceed to have their own adult party of two -- and the games are strongly sexual.

Is it any good?

The mellow groove of this slow rap jam fits with its steamy lyrics. Allen's smoky vocals definitely suit the song's mood, along with downtempo rhyming from both T-Pain and Wiz Khalifa.
