A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know this album has no parental advisory label, and comes in one version only. The content is mature, however, with sex the chief topic, explicitly pronounced. Even in "Gift From Virgo," where Beyonce suggests abstinence ("One day we'll make love/ I'll finally be yours"), she also sings about spending time together in a hotel room.

What's the story?
DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE showcases Beyonce and her growing talent and confidence. In \"Crazy in Love\" she teams with Jay-Z to craft a hip-hop duet, backed by snappy percussion and horns, that sounds better with each spin. In \"Naughty Girl\" Beyonce borrows Donna Summer's hook from \"Love to Love You Baby\" and makes it her own with searing lyrics and a hypnotic synth chorus. Beyonce sizzles in \"Hip Hop Star\" with Big Boi and Sleepy Brown, whispering lyrics that may go too far for some parents (\"Do you want to get nasty/ I dare you to undress me\"), but cooling down in \"The Closer I Get To You,\" a ballad with Luther Vandross.
