A lot or a little?

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

Positive Messages

Despite the word "bitch" in the title, the overall message is actually a good one: when a guy develops an interest in a girl who's the subject of rumors, he refuses to believe them and wants to get to know her on his own. He needs to try to find a way to describe his strong feelings about her "without being disrespectful." 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Though David Guetta is known on the club scene, he has not made a media spectacle of himself.

Violence
Sex

A mention of a girl's "booty."

Language

Nothing other than "bitch" in the title, and the word "ho" in the song itself.

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that while this track's title -- "Sexy Bitch" -- makes it seem like the song itself will be racy, the tune is actually pretty tame. It includes no swearing or graphic descriptions, with the worst line being "She's nothing like a girl you've ever seen before / Nothing you can compare to your neighborhood ho." Still, you probably don't want your tween repeating these type of lyrics, so it's better suited for teens and up.

Great song, but not quite for kids

I think this a great song. Akon fits in nicely. But it is probably best for teens. Even though they say they're trying not to be disrespectful, they do say... Continue reading

Actually really catchy

It's sort of iffy song but actually catchy. Get the clean version (Sexy Chick)

What's the story?

After working with the likes of Britney Spears, will.i.am, and other music stars, hot French producer and DJ David Guetta has teamed up with R&B singer Akon in his own single, "SEXY BITCH" -- a club track about a guy admiring a girl who's tearing up the dance floor. Though the tune's title suggests otherwise, the story behind this song is largely inoffensive. It revolves around a girl who stands out in the dance-floor crowd and therefore becomes the subject of both admiration and jealous rumors. Refusing to believe the hype, the guy hopes to get to know her on his own and avoids "being disrespectful" in the way he talks about her. While the lyrics do go so far as to mention the girl's "booty" and say she's not like the "neighborhood ho," the song is otherwise innocuous.

Is it any good?

Smooth, hypnotic synth-beats characterize this dance track, demonstrating why David Guetta has become a fixture on the club scene. Akon's reggae-infused R&B vocals overlay the infectious groove, resulting in a tune that makes you want to dance and sing along at the same time.
