Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while "We Run the Night" doesn't contain much in the way of mature content (beyond one use of "f--k" in the explicit version), it celebrates and promotes partying: "Party all night, sleep all day, then do it again." It's a less-than-ideal message for tweens and teens learning about responsibility.
What's the story?
"WE RUN THE NIGHT" is the debut single from Australian DJ-turned-recording artist Havana Brown, with an assist from rapper Pitbull. The dance-infused track is about sleeping all day, partying all night.
Is it any good?
This tune is undeniably danceable, though the high-pitched, alarm-like hook might irritate some ears. The addition of Pitbull's raw rap style lends a welcome, distinctive edge to the track.
