What's the story?

High School Musical heartthrob Corbin Bleu's newest single was a standout on Disney's movie Minutemen, promoting the value of persisting until you succeed with lyrics like "Mix it up, get it right/go for another try…replay hit rewind/and this time you'll do it right…run it back again/try again."

Is it any good?

Charming and squeaky-clean, Corbin Bleu knows exactly how far to go when it comes to exciting tween girls while remaining non-threatening to their parents. Percolating rhythms and easy-to-understand (if not brilliant) lyrics play to Corbin's vocal strengths. Disney's usual solid production standards provide more-than-adequate support, and an easy, limited range allows him to deliver a strong, relaxed vocal performance with his usual energy and charisma.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the concept of the "do-over." Have you ever wished you could rewind real life, and do (or say) something different to achieve a different outcome? Do you believe it's possible to "undo" a mistake? How?
