"We Found Love" (CD Single)
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that "We Found Love" is one of the cleanest songs that Rihanna has ever recorded. With no profanity, graphic sexual descriptions, or references to violence or substances, the track just has simple lyrics about falling in love with someone. That said, the super-sultry video showing a scantily clad Rihanna in a variety of different sex scenes is too intense for younger kids.
What's the story?
"WE FOUND LOVE" is the first track off R&B diva Rihanna's sixth album. In a departure from her usual edgy approach, the singer keeps it really clean in this song, sticking with a more wholesome description of falling in love. However, the video takes a 180-degree turn, depicting the singer in several skimpy outfits and compromising positions with various men.
Is it any good?
This song's light, airy tones go well with RiRi's upbeat vocals. Though there's nothing complex to the arrangement, the single features a catchy, danceable vibe that will be right at home in the clubs (or at slumber parties and school dances).
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about why Rihanna would pair a wholesome song with an especially explicit video. Is this a mixed message?
Does the video do a good job of relating the spirit of the song? Why or why not?
