A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Meant to entertain rather than educate.

Positive Messages

"Make it in America" is a song that celebrates dreaming big.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Victoria Justice and friends are all about dancing and having a great time, sometimes with a little attitude and sass, but all in good fun.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

"Take a Hint" has some innuendo ("Get your hands off my hips ... Stop that staring at my -- Hey!)"

Language

"Take a Hint" has implied profanity ("I don't want to be a priss, I just try to be polite / But it always seems to bite me in the ---"). "Shut up" is repeated in "Shut Up and Dance."

Consumerism

Promotes Nick show, Victorious. Song "I Think You're Swell," mentions several celebrities and products -- from Oprah and Stedman and Carrie and Samantha, to Bobby and Whitney, the Spice Girls, and the Titanic.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Victorious 2.0 is an abbreviated album (only seven songs) that features some hits from the popular Nick show, and is mostly about dancing and having fun. "Take a Hint" has some innuendo ("Get your hands off my hips ... Stop that staring at my -- Hey!)" and implied profanity ("I don't want to be a priss, I just try to be polite / But it always seems to bite me in the ---"). There's occasional attitude ("Shut Up and Dance") and snarky humor, but overall it's OK for tween fans of the show.

spectacular!

the best VICtoriOUS album so far

What's the story?

Victoria Justice and friends from the hit Nick show, Victorious, give fans just a little more to enjoy with the album VICTORIOUS 2.0 (MORE MUSIC FROM THE HIT TV SHOW), a short, seven-track compilation that features faves "Take a Hint," "Countdown," and the new "Make It in America." Parents might like the cover of the '80s hit "Don't You (Forget About Me)."

Is it any good?

Although some fans might be disappointed by the album's short length, the songs on it are a good mix of the humor, dance beats, and fun that make the show Victorious and its female star, Victoria Justice, a success. The country-pop "Make It in America" is a fresh break from the usual cookie-cutter synth-pop, and even shows that Justice's voice is well suited for another genre. "I Think You're Swell" (featuring Matt Bennett) is clever and cute, an acoustic track with charming lyrics like "I'll be the Jagger to your Richards, the Captain Kirk to your Picard ... You're more fun than Frisbee in the park and popping edamame." "Shut Up and Dance" is a typical dance mix, but it's catchy, with just enough attitude to make it appeal to tweens who get tired of sugary-sweet pop.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Do you think Victoria Justice will continue to be popular when Victorious ends? How can tween idols grow up without alienating their fan base?
