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 is a mature song that describes serious partying and sexual behavior in a dance club. The tune avoids swearing but still manages to mention several adult themes, including drinking ten rounds of shots and groupies taking their clothes off. These and other lines put the song beyond the acceptability limits for tweens and young teens.

What's the story?
Two kings of the dance club -- rapper Flo Rida and DJ David Gueta -- have teamed up to make the single "CLUB CAN'T HANDLE ME," one of the songs on the soundtrack to the movie Step Up 3D. True to the tune's title, the track is all about how Flo Rida's rep as a major starmakes him larger than life and too cool for the club he's in. To support this, he spends the song bragging about all the hard partying, drinking, and womanizing he's capable of. Though he avoids swear words in his lyrics, the ego-centric, mature message is not meant for young tweens and teens.
Is it any good?
Part of the appeal of former Flo Rida hits like "Right Round" is that they sampled other famous tunes. "Club Can't Handle Me" lacks this heavy sampling -- and loses some of the appeal. While it has enough groove to keep people moving on the dance floor, it's not enough of a stand-out to remain in your thoughts once the next song starts.
