"Sweet Nothing" (CD Single)
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "Sweet Nothing" is hardly a light, carefree tune with lines like "There is a hollow in me now ... I'm trying to hope with nothing to hold." That said, it offers no graphic language or lyrics about sex, substance use, or violence –– making it an overall acceptable pick for tweens and teens who can handle the song's melancholy tone.

In the single "SWEET NOTHING," smash DJ Calvin Harris partners up with yet another music sensation: Florence Welch, lead singer of the pop–rock band Florence + the Machine. The fifth song from 18 Months, Harris's third full–length record, the track marries the British DJ's infectious beats with Welch's powerful pipes.
