This isn't my favorite song, but it's got a really nice tune and upbeat tone. The song contains positive messages about not getting caught up in money. As far as I know, there's no inappropriate content.
I LUV this song. It's got a positive message sayin' that money isn't the most important thing in the world, and that it can't buy us happiness. D*mn is used, plus h*e* (the gardening tool but used as an insult). But overall, it is a good song.
I love this song because Jessie J is a really talented singer, B.o.B. is a great rapper, and the message of money cannot always buy you fun is something uncommon in modern hip hop. However, there is a little mild language here. There's one "d**n" and a mention of "video h*es" (as in girl models in music videos). The Now 39 version of this song bleeps out the h-word but "d**n" is still audible.
Families can talk about whether the combined singing and rapping approach from Jessie J and rising rap star B.o.B. works in this song.
Describe some of the musical characteristics displayed by both of these artists. Do those qualities mesh well here? Why?
What do you think of the song's message? Do you or your friends spend too much time thinking about material items?

This song is my ringtone!The only bad part is "It wasn't low blows/and Video Hoes" and Dam but still good song and my daughter doesn't pick up cursing easily so i let her add this to her ipod playlish =)
Awesome messages, just one thing about language. It does say d**n and h**s, but I don't know why CS didn't catch that...Anyway, I just sing it as, "acting so dang mysterious" to cover the d word, so you could do that too if your kids purchase this song. Because really, it is a fabulous song with great messages!!!
There is some curses in this song. "D---" and "hoes" are the 2 that were missing in the review. Most of you who think "hoes" is just the name of a gardening tool, you're wrong because it's not used like that in this "clean" song.
I'm finally getting the chance to review this song. The song's ok, but the music video is a little bit iffy for younger kids. Still,the song's really good and has a positive message about not being too focused on money and material items. Good for kids 10+ Sex: None in the song itself, but the music video shows Jessie J wearing a couple of revealing outfits Language: One use of the word "d**n"
YEAH! Go PRICE TAG! I, personally, LOVE this song. It gives a good message, and good lyrics (except the swearing). In the very beginning she says "Okay, coconut man, moonhead, and me. You ready?" LOL complete randomness! But, the odd thing is, the song isn't free on itunes.....
Love it, it's a great tween song as it has two minor problems in it. #1 She says "video hoes" which is a little sensual. #2 She says da*n. They are not really that bad but some parents might think so. 5 Stars its perfect! :)
