A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this single is another clean track from Mike Posner that features no graphic language or adult content, aside from a couple of mild references to kissing and sleeping in the same bed. Its lack of questionable content makes it a fine pick for tweens and teens.
What's the story?
Smooth newcomer Mike Posner continues his quest for love in "PLEASE DON'T GO," another single from his debut album 31 Minutes to Takeoff. Here, Posner hopes to forget about the troubles he's having with the object of his affection and stay focused on their feelings of being in love. The lyrics are once again on the up-and-up, with no graphic language and little in the way of sexual references aside from kissing and allusions to sleeping over. Parents should feel fine about letting their tweens and younger teens listen to the tune.
Is it any good?
Again, Mike Posner doesn't achieve any great feats of musical genius in "Please Don't Go" -- but the song's simplicity actually lends to its appeal. The basic, catchy beat gets under your skin after a few plays, and Posner's high vocal tone adds to the track's sweet quality. With these redeeming features, the tune is likely to be remixed in plenty of clubs for a while.
