A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Educational Value

Meant to entertain rather than educate.

Positive Messages

Positive messages about being yourself and celebrating youth: "Who Says" teaches girls to believe in who they are and love themselves no matter what; "Determinate" encourages kids to "turn the world into your dance floor;" and "21st Century Girl" empowers girls to embrace life and make it your own.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Although not all of these songs come from the Disney label, they all maintain the clean content and overall positive image that Disney portrays in its music, movies, and TV shows.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Promotes Disney brand, Radio Disney network.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this album mostly contains songs your tweens are already listening to, so that means you've probably heard them all, too. It's a compilation of top-10 hits from Radio Disney's 15 years from artists like Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, and Willow Smith, so most of the songs are popular today and all are squeaky-clean and appropriate for tweens.

What's the story?

To commemorate Radio Disney's 15 years and its status as the #1 radio network especially for kids, fans can enjoy RADIO DISNEY JAMS, 15TH BDAY EDITION. Although some of the artists featured on the 15 tracks are barely older than the network itself, there are hit songs from Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Jesse McCartney, Hillary Duff, Willow Smith, Hot Chelle Rae, Lemonade Mouth, Greyson Chance, and Allstar Weekend, to name several.

Is it any good?

In case you haven't heard most of these songs enough already, now your tweens can have their favorite Radio Disney songs from the past and present all on one album. From Bieber's "Baby" to "Watch Me" by Shake It Up's Bella Thorne and Zendaya, your kids and tweens will love this mix even if some of the younger ones don't know who Hillary Duff is. Britney Spears has graciously been included for her uber-hit from 1999, "Baby One More Time." Remember that one? Summertime hit "Tonight, Tonight" by Hot Chelle Rae makes you wanna dance on your rooftop, and Jesse McCartney's "Beautiful Soul" is still a really, really lovely song  (even if it was years ago, and Justin Bieber was still in grammar school).

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the popularity of the Radio Disney network, and the way the widespread availability of it through satellite radio has increased its success. What do you think about satellite radio? Has it changed the music stations that you listen to? What makes it better or worse than local networks?

  • There are many artists on this compilation. How do you think they were chosen? Are there any musicians or bands you think should have been included but weren't? Or musicians who should not have been featured? Why?
