A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this American Idol winner delivers a decent first single about love and getting out of it when the time is right. The lyrics and message are tame -- if not lame -- and fine for all ages.

What's the story?
There's a reason why Jordin Sparks won the American Idol title: She's a talented singer with a lot of passion. Unfortunately, most of that passion is missing in TATTOO, the first single off her first album. The lyrics tell of love and longing, with words that are fine for any age.
Is it any good?
The generic synthesized background beat and random yelping seem odd and out of place against Sparks' pleasant-enough voice, making the song just fall flat. And lyrics like "You're on my heart just like a tattoo/Just like a tattoo/I'll always have you" just add to the blah factor. Let's hope the rest of her album allows this songstress to live up to her potential.
