A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "Big Hoops" is a funky hip-hop beat that's a feisty club anthem about being yourself and going out and having fun. Although it embraces a certain cockiness with its "bigger is better" mantra, it's a healthy dose of confidence that anyone could use, and it gives this boost without iffy lyrics or content.

What's the story?
Canadian cutie Nelly Furtado is back on the scene with her single "BIG HOOPS (BIGGER IS BETTER)." With Furtado's signature style put to a funky hip-hop pulse, this track touts that bigger is always better when it comes to confidence, attitude, and even, yes, hoop earrings.
Is it any good?
At first Furtado's signature cherubic, slightly-cartoonish voice is on the verge of annoying when the melody starts on "Big Hoops," but the song quickly becomes intoxicating due to the invigorating bass pulse and the bravado that this petite brunette boasts. Pair that with the Japanese comic-styled video that features Furtado strutting in stilts and rapping in black-rimmed glasses, and the combination is a hit for summer -- whether in the car or on the dance floor.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the idea that "bigger is better," especially when it comes to money and fame. Do many celebrities and athletes live by this motto when it comes to money and lifestyle?
Furtado has a certain quiet confidence that has served her well, without being too profane or sexy in her life and music. Do you think female artists have to be sexy or outspoken in order to be successful?
How would you describe the song's sound? How is it similar or different than other Furtado songs?
