A lot or a little?

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

Positive Messages

Kingston keeps it real on this record, describing common concerns to young kids -- including some refreshingly honest references to his weight issues -- without resorting to foul language or detailed descriptions of adult situations.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Kingston is an exceptional role model for kids, living clean yet achieving success in a musical genre that can be known for questionable content.

Violence

One mention of someone getting "popped."

Sex

A couple of mild references, such as "see you laying next to me."

Language
Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

One line refers to a young, troubled girl doing "whatever for a hit."

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that though Kingston's record includes a few brief allusions to sex, drugs, and violent circumstances, most of the album's harmless action takes place on the dance floor.

What's the story?

Baby-faced dancehall sensation Sean Kingston is back at it with TOMORROW, his second full-length album. Kingston calls on producer Red One, pop-punk band Good Charlotte, and former Fugee Wyclef Jean for help with the fun, reggae-tinged tunes included in this record. Like his first self-titled CD, Kingston's second album is filled with lots of reggae-tinged songs about the ups and downs of young love. Most of the album's scenarios play out on the dance floor, where the dancing gets hot but most of the remaining action remains cool and clean. As a result, these songs are a good compromise for kids who love dancehall yet are still too young to handle the adult themes included in much of this music.

Is it any good?

If this album has one overriding musical theme, it’s just plain fun. The beats are fresh and light, making your feet want to move. While the lyrics themselves, which occasionally discuss break-ups and broken hearts, may not always be as light, they aren’t so dark as to significantly dampen the mood. Particular highlights include the collaborations with both Good Charlotte (“Shoulda Let U Go”) and Wyclef Jean (“Ice Cream Girl”), both of which have a carefree feel that cause you to hit the repeat button more than once.    

Talk to your kids about ...

  • What challenges might Kingston face in trying to make clean music for a young adult audience within a genre where so much of the music includes adult themes?

  • What kinds of self-esteem issues that are normally attributed to girls, such as weight, can boys face as well?
