The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "This Kiss" is the much-anticipated follow-up to the highly contagious single "Call Me Maybe" from Canadian export and Justin Bieber project Carly Rae Jepsen. Its lyrics are clean and lack references to violence or substances, but the track does talk about temptations with someone who isn't your boyfriend/girlfriend.

What's the story?
Is it any good?
When Justin Bieber and friends and the entire women's U.S. Olympic swim team spoof your song and make it a worldwide phenomenon, it's hard to follow up. "This Kiss" is a solid sophomore single from Jepsen with a good club beat and smoother, more mature vocals. The grating tech pulses are repetitive and the content about kissing someone who isn't your significant other isn't ideal, but "This Kiss" gives fans another song to listen to a million times over.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the worldwide sensation of Jepsen's song "Call Me Maybe." It received tons of publicity with Bieber's homemade video spoof as well as one from the Olympic women's swim team and other celebrities. Do you think this song would have been as popular and successful without this priceless publicity? Does music today need gimmicks to win fans?
Jepsen has, thus far, produced music that is clean and mostly tween-friendly. Do you think it's necessary for females to portray a sexy image to be relevant today? If so, is this fair?
Do you think Jepsen has what it takes to have a long career in pop music? Why or why not?
