A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Sex

About as graphic as it gets. For example: "I'm a get in and on that p---y / Gonna throw it back and bust it open like you 'posed to."

Language

Plenty of f-bombs and euphemisms for both male and female genitalia.

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

References being drunk and smoking weed.

Plain ridiculous

How did Drake, who created the incredible "Best I Ever Had" get stuck with this heap of explicit trash. And how did it reach the top 10 on the charts?

Wayne.

You are the best.

What's the story?

EVERY GIRL is the first single from Young Money, a group of five rappers led by its most famous member, Lil' Wayne. The song's title speaks volumes about its theme: these guys want to sleep with every girl -- in every way imaginable. The entire song is an ode to sex, describing in minute detail various sexual situations that also involve drinking and drugs: "I wish I could f--k every girl in the world / …I just can't pick one so you can never say I'm choosy / …And weed and alcohol seem to satisfy us all / …And every time I think of staying with her / She bring that friend around that make a n---a reconsider."

Is it any good?

Musically, this song sounds amateur at best. The artists use an Autotune throughout, which distorts some of the lyrics so badly that the words are barely comprehensible (maybe a good thing?). The rhymes are set against a backdrop of boring, unimaginative beats that sound as if they were thrown together in a matter of a few minutes. And with five different rappers each needing their time in the spotlight, the song drones on for more than five minutes -- when it was hardly worth one.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about whether people who glorify casual sex may be

  • attempting to compensate for a deficiency in their lives. Is sleeping

  • around truly satisfying, or does it simply mask a deeper

  • loneliness?
