What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Austin Mahone's dance single "Mmm Yeah" is a bit racier than his previous material but still tame enough for tweens. Although the song has no iffy language, violence, or references to drugs and alcohol, it does talk about "booties" and checking out a girl on the street. The fun music video pays homage to the fashion and disco-dance moves of Soul Train and 1970s funk and is kid-safe, although there's some half-unbuttoned shirts and bare male chests and one of the female dancers has an exposed midriff.
What's the story?
MMM YEAH is the third single from former YouTube star Austin Mahone's debut album of the same name and features rapper Pitbull. The retro-style lyric music video, set in a blinged-out disco, showcases Mahone's dance moves as he grooves in a blond afro wig. The video also features various Internet stars strutting their stuff in flamboyant disco-era costuming.
Is it any good?
Although "Mmm Yeah" isn't a great song by any means, it's light, fluffy fun. The infectious beat and repetition of "mmm yeah" will definitely get stuck in your head. The real winner is the lyric video, which is so catchy, colorful, and over-the-top, you can't help but be entertained by it.
