A lot or a little?

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

Positive Messages

A few suggestive lines ("Lazy lovers never let you spread your wings") and not-so-suggestive ones ("Makin love above the breeze" and "Take off your outfit and lets be gone").


One "f--king."


There's an obvious tie-in to the MTV TV show Making the Band. One mention of an old video game.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

One thing: "I'm your supplier, I'll get you higher."

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this dance/love song from the Making the Band finalist is about wanting to do everything for a girl to make her happy. There are a few suggestive lyrics, but overall, most of the lines are subtle enough to keep the song innocent.

I was discussded

We sould not let our kids listen to this Adultish and Imature behavuor.

What's the story?

Diddy's hit MTV show Making the Band has produced a bevy of talented beauties. Perhaps none more so than Donnie J. with his beautiful blue eyes and breathy voice. That breathiness is very Britney Spears/Justin Timberlake-like, as is the beat to \"TAKE YOU THERE\" which sounds similar to Spears' \"Give Me More.\"

Is it any good?

Nonetheless, "Take You There" is a likable song that definitely gets the nod for being a great dance track -- even if it's a bit generic. Diddy's contribution adds some credibility, but also brings in the no-so-subtle sexual lyrics. This is a solid enough first single that will keep you interested enough to wait for the entire new album coming out in late spring.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how Making the Band catapults former nobodys into major somebodys. Would Donnie J. have become famous without the show? Families can also discuss music reality shows. From Making the Band to Nashville Star to American Idol -- what do these shows have in common? How are they different?
