Now That's What I Call Music! 12
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that they may want to listen carefully track by track. The lyrics tend to focus on physical attraction and sexual behavior with lots of posturing that may signify "cool" behavior to your teens but will definitely raise an eyebrow or two if you listen with tweens.
What's the story?
Ounce for ounce, the NOW series packs more musical punch than most albums, thanks to the savvy grouping of familiar hits by reliable performers. NOW 12 is no exception.
Is it any good?
This album includes featuring established talents like Snoop Dog, LL Cool J, and Jay-Z and popular tracks like "03 Bonnie & Clyde," "Air Force Ones," and "Bump, Bump, Bump." Like its recent predecessors, NOW 12 includes plenty of hip-hop in this compilation. But the album also branches out to include some pop, R&B, and rock, like Telepopmusik's ubiquitous "Breathe," "When I'm Gone" by 3 Doors Down, and Chevelle's "The Red."
