It's About Time



Jersey girl grows up!

What parents need to know

Positive messages

A couple of drippy love songs; a couple with good strong relationship messages.


No worries.


Very sexy, but not explicit.


"Hell" and "damn" are as strong as it gets.


Very commercial sound, but no brand names or tie-ins.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

Nothing obvious.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although this CD is mostly dance-party fluff, it does deliver a few of songs with good, strong relationship messages. The rest of the tracks are fun, sexy dance tunes and an R&B ballad or two, clever innuendo with a wink and a smile.

What's the story?

A New Jersey-born Cuban-American child actress, Christina Milian has grown up to become the girl who has everything: looks (wow!), talent (singer-actor-dancer), and brains (really). On IT'S ABOUT TIME, she delivers one sexy dance tune after another -- loaded with innuendo that's a bit cleverer than usual -- with a rare spark of intelligence and a good-natured wink. The lyrics don't have all that much to say, with a couple of startling exceptions. On the infectious \"I Need More,\" Christina dumps a boyfriend who isn't treating her right. Beginning with energetic guitar riffs, background vocals, and handclaps, it's an irresistible dance song that actually has a positive message for girls. \"Oh Daddy\" is a poignant appeal to a father who \"broke up with us and made a new family.\" \"I'm Sorry\" says no to a married man with polite sincerity. The rest is sexy dance-party fluff with the occasional dreamy ballad thrown in.

Is it any good?


Christina Milian continues her smooth transition from Disney Channel child star to pop diva with It's About Time, a sparkling collection of mostly dance tunes. It doesn't break any new ground, but it's a whole lot of well-produced fun.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the messages of a few songs in particular: On the infectious "I Need More," there's a positive message for girls; "Oh Daddy" is about the aftermath of a father abandoning his family; and "I'm Sorry" finds Milian saying no to a married man.

Very Nice Album

"It's About Time" is a good CD from Christina Milian. There is no bad language. Sex is mostly implied ("Dip It Low"). "Highway" is about sex, but since it is a metaphorical song it's not that innapropriate. I recommend it to fans of Mya.
