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 remix single features Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend Rihanna, not to mention major publicity surrounding their collaboration after a public, abusive relationship in 2009. The song, however, is clean and fine for teens and up, but does have some minor innuendo and mention of drinking in the club.

What's the story?
Is it any good?
No matter what his past offenses are, Chris Brown has talent when it comes to music. "Turn Up the Music" might be his way of showing that he's ready to move on from his notorious past with Rihanna and keep the naysayers at bay. The song lets his airy, effortless vocals slide through the pop R&B synth and bass beats, and whether it's a bad career move or not, Rihanna adds a new layer of color that works on this song.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the attention that this song is getting because it features Brown's ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, whom he assaulted in 2009. Would the song be getting as much publicity if it featured a different woman? Do you think this is why Brown chose Rihanna?
How do you feel about the fact that Rihanna is willing to sing on Brown's song? What, if anything, does this say about her? Does it send a positive or negative message?
Rihanna has the last line of the song: "Baby, I love you." It's just a song lyric, but why did she choose to sing that particular lyric in this song with this person?
