A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that although this song starts out innocently enough, with the artist describing how he loves to kiss his lady, it goes progressively downhill, ending with some not-so-subtle descriptions of the other sexual activities they engage in.

What's the story?
Known for churning out dance-oriented rap tracks, club-fave Flo Rida is back with another one: SUGAR, a song about a guy who can't get enough of his girl's kissable, "candy"-like lips. As the tune goes on, however, we learn that Flo Rida's girl uses her lips for a lot more than kissing, with the rapper giving graphic descriptions of oral sex between the two. These lyrics led the record company to slap a parental advisory sticker on the song (as well as the full-length album on which it appears, entitled R.O.O.T.S.).
Is it any good?
In a club, where one danceable, similar-sounding song melts into the next, "Sugar" surely fits in. While the track's synthesizer-heavy beats and Flo Rida's delivery are appealing enough for dancing, they don't make for a particularly exceptional song that transcends others on the scene. The tune's been-there, done-that theme of graphic sex knocks it further down the originality index.
