A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this single and video feature the star of the hit Nick show, Victorious, Victoria Justice. Although the idea of crushin’ on your BF’s sibling might be a little sketchy for younger kids, the song is innocent enough and has no bad language or iffy content. The video just features a playful, blushing Justice daydreaming about her friend's brother.

What's the story?
The idea of crushin' on your BF’s bro is probably something more of us can relate to than we care to admit. Apparently, Victoria Justice’s single “BEST FRIEND’S BROTHER” was written from her own personal experience about a secret crush. The song is upbeat techno-pop, with the video featuring a charming Justice (and fellow cast members) blushing and daydreaming about her BF’s sibling. The song is featured on the TV show as well.
Is it any good?
Victoria Justice is already making a name for herself as aspiring singer Tori Vega on her popular Nickelodeon show Victorious. It's hard to stand out among a vast celebrity sea of teenage female pop artists with long locks, but Justice is doing a good job of it. Her voice is more mature than her Nick or Disney counterparts, and the video shows a goofy and sweet Justice unafraid to let loose. But like any good friend should, she never crosses the line or her best friend. Although the music and lyrics aren't groundbreaking, the single is catchy and fun, and is sure to be on heavy rotation on many tweens' playlists.
