"Nuclear" (CD Single)
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that the lyrics of "Nuclear" glorify the singer's "us against the world" bond with her partner -- they're not just unstoppable, they're "nuclear" together. There's a hint of doubt, however, as she asks, "Why run? Why would you run?" There's also a four-letter word in the first verse ("s--t"), and the chorus contains the phrase "going all the way."

What's the story?
Is it any good?
"Bootylicious" this isn't. Fans could be forgiven for thinking "Nuclear" is a sleeper from the vaults: The Pharrell Williams-produced breakbeat groove and faux strings are straight from the '90s, and the song's lack of a strong bass line or any exciting change makes it sound unfinished. The lyrics are vague, and there's nothing groundbreaking here. Although Williams gets a verse, Beyonce dominates most of the track, and the production is stripped down and spare.
