"Finally Found You" (CD Single)



Racy dance track fueled by booze, mixed messages.

What parents need to know

Positive messages

Commitment and love eternal are great, but it's unclear if it's real (especially after a night of drinking) or a drunken infatuation: "In this crazy world of choices I've only got a few / Either you’re coming with me, or I'm coming with you / Cause I finally found, I finally found you / You'll never have to worry if I what I say is true / Girl I've been looking for you / And when I saw you I knew /That I finally found, I finally found you."

Positive role models

The song's mature message is not the best for kids, since it's about meeting up at a bar and seeing the love of your life while "drunk as f--k." It's also not a good sign if a guy asks a girl to ignore her friends and, perhaps, her instinct.

Not applicable

While the verses and choruses are more about a commitment or fixation, the sexual content really unleashes in the song's rapped bridge: "Way to sex in the drums / Got my hands full, grabbing on skirt, skirts / Hands up, hands up, just flo chilling with ho two cups / Can't stop spilling, cause I'm drunk as f--k." 


Lyrics are relatively clean until the song's rapped bridge where Adams drops a "f--k" and uses language that clearly objectifies women ("ho"). Note: On edited versions the "f--k" is bleeped out, although you can still figure out what's being said.


This song features rapper Sammy Adams. Many of Iglesias' other singles feature rappers, including Pitbull and Lil Wayne.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

The song takes place at a club and there's mention of being "drunk as f--k."

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that "Finally Found You" is an energetic dance-pop about a guy finding the love of his life at a club and declaring to never her let go. The lyrics also encourage this object of affection to ignore the advice of her friends and to stick with him till the end. The video shows a female dancer, a DJ, and lots of sound equipment, flashing lights, and lyrics written out on everything in sight. There's a line about being "drunk as f--k"; edited versions of the track bleep out the expletive. Parents may want to find a more appropriate dance track for tweens and young teens due to the song's mature message, swearing, and alcohol-fueled message.

What's the story?

"Finally Found You" is a song performed by the Spanish-Filipino superstar Enrique Iglesias and Boston rapper Sammy Adams. It's the first single from Iglesias' 10th studio album. The track features Iglesias singing the verses and choruses and Adams rapping on the song's bridge. Iglesias is the best-selling Latin recording artist in the world and is the son of fellow Latin megastar, Julio Iglesias.

Is it any good?


There's really nothing original about "Finally Found You," other than it feels like two different songs with two different messages rolled into one. Iglesias sings with hyper-focus to win the girl, "The One," while Adams' rap is scattered and objectifies every woman in sight. The two opposing messages seem mismatched. The video's distracting, too, with quick edits and lyrics spelled out on every cut. That said, the song does match Iglesias' sexy Latin dance-pop style and heartthrob persona, and is reminiscent of his other recent hit dance singles featuring rappers. So this one's likely to burn up the dance floor (or Mom's calories when she's on the treadmill).

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about what to do if someone suddenly takes a strong interest in you. Is it safe to give some distance, or is that playing hard to get? Is it wise to listen to your instincts or cave into the power of suggestion?

  • What do you think about the collaboration between Iglesias and Adams?  Does adding a rapper to a song make it more interesting to listeners?  Do you think it helps sell records?

  • What are your family's rules about songs or other media with racy or explicit language?

Catchy, but iffy content

Ok, so the language is iffy, but it is a really catchy tune. I like it better without Sammy Adams (which is also a beer name).

Im 12 years old and I really love this song. Its an upbeat song and the video has some things that shouldnt really be seen, but get over it. Your kids are going to see music videos like that as they get older. Its the 21st century. I love the song because its upbeat and something you can dance too. The lyrics are also catchy. Most kids have that one special person in their mind which makes the song even better because whenever your listening to it you think of that one person and how you found them and your in love with them. Thats just how tweens and teens think. I love the video because it has 2 kids in it and they had a crush on each other and they were chasing each other and things and then it shows them about 10 years later. the kid ( enrique) is grown up now, and he goes to a club. He sees the girl there,( also grown up now) it shows another flashback to them as kids chasing each other, then he goes to her in the club and they make out. This scene goes pretty quick so its actually hard to tell their making out. Just dont be that parent who doesnt let their kids listen to cool music thats "in" nowadays. Its not like their gonna go out and get influenced by others by words in a song.
