"Dance A$$" (CD Single)
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that "Dance A$$" 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.
Is it any good?
Sometimes Minaj sounds like a gnat in your ear -- a grating, high-pitched tone that won't go away. Though catchy at times, the synth-beat here sounds largely the same, and Big Sean's droning, uninspired delivery doesn't do much to punch things up.

Families can talk about the difference between appreciating an attractive person and identifying that person only with her or his looks.
Is the song complimenting a woman or objectifying her? How do you know?
