Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is the first single released from the Disney Channel's upcoming sequel to the big hit Camp Rock, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. It's a song about the ensuing competition and "battle of the bands" that occurs between the campers of two opposing rock camps; some friendly competition and cocky banter is as bad as it gets on this squeaky-clean single.

What's the story?

"IT'S ON" is the first single from the upcoming soundtrack to Disney Channel's Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. After the widespread success of the first Camp Rock, this sequel is sure to be a hit. The rallying single features most of the main characters from the first movie, (Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Meaghan Jette Martin, and Alyson Stoner) so fans won't be disappointed. It's a sugary rock-pop single with lots of energy about a battle of the bands between the teens at Camp Rock and Camp Star. It's sure to excite and ignite the competitive fire for Camp Rockers who eagerly wait the release of Camp Rock 2.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

After the success of Camp Rock, any collaboration with the adorable and likeable Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato is going to be a hit. In the sequel, there's a battle about to happen at Camp Rock, and this song is a fun and feisty pep rally for the musical competition that's in store. Lovato belts out most of the song, while Matthew "MDot" Finley shows off his rap skillz, and Nick and Kevin Jonas liven things up with drum and guitar solos. This single (and video) will make fans old and new want to see the movie to check out which camp comes out on top.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the hype surrounding movies that feature big-name stars, such as the Jonas Brothers or Demi Lovato. Does it make you more likely to see a movie with stars you know and like already? Does the fact that it's a sequel make it more interesting? Are you more likely to watch a movie that has the name "Disney" attached to it? Why or why not? Have you already seen ads for this movie? Does it make you want to see it or buy the music?

  • The singers talk about competing against one another and seeing who's "the best." Is there such a thing as healthy competition? Do you feel like you have to compete at school or with your friends? When? How does it make you feel?
