"Dance A$$" (CD Single)
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "Dance A$$" is an explicit, demeaning rap single with an intense focus on the female body. Its heavily sexual lyrics describe various hardcore scenarios, with lots of profanity ("f--k," "p---y," etc.) thrown in. It's definitely not a track for younger ears.

What's the story?
"DANCE A$$," featuring Nicki Minaj, is a remixed single originally on Finally Famous, the first full-length album by Midwest rapper Big Sean. True to its title, the track focuses largely on one aspect of the female body -- the behind -- but goes into graphic detail about other body parts as well.
