"Stereo Love" (CD single)
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that "Stereo Love" is a tame single told from the perspective of one partner in a romantic relationship who implores the other to work through their problems together. Featuring no swearing or adult content beyond one line about touching someone's body, this track is acceptable for older kids and teens.
What's the story?
"STEREO LOVE" is the dance hit heard 'round the world by Edward Maya, a Romanian musician and producer, and guest vocalist Vika Jigulina. Its theme is a common one, about two people in love, one of whom asks the other to make a mature effort to work out their problems and issues. There's no profanity, sex, or substance use discussed here, resulting in a track that's OK for both younger and older ears.
Is it any good?
It's easy to understand why "Stereo Love" received nearly 100 million YouTube views in less than a year: the song's hypnotic beat, Vika Jigulina's plaintive vocals, and a digitized accordion tone make the tune sound somewhat other-worldly, haunting your thoughts long after it's done. Several up-and down-beat remixes add more or less intensity to the track, depending on your mood.
