Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that "Where Them Girls At" is a fairly mature song that mentions hooking up with multiple strangers at a dance club. It includes some profanity ("s--t," "f--k"), a reference to getting "buzzed," and an especially graphic description of oral sex. Combined, these qualities result in a song that's not age appropriate for tweens and young teens.

What's the story?

WHERE THEM GIRLS AT is a collaboration between hot DJ David Guetta and two equally popular rappers -- Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj. None of the three is known for making clean music, so it's no surprise that this track tells a mature story about going to a club and hooking up with lots (and lots) of people. Minaj has an especially explicit lyric about oral sex, and both rappers use profanity. Throw in a reference to getting buzzed, and this song definitely crosses the line into inappropriate-for-young-kids territory.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

There's nothing new about this synth-heavy sound, featuring the same pumping beats as so much of the other club music out there. Coupled with Minaj's hectic rap style, this tune isn't for everyone -- but it will resonate with all the club-goers who love this genre.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the song's message. What are some of the potential consequences that can come from casual hookups with various partners?

  • How can you have fun on a night out with friends without indulging in casual sex or substance use?

  • Studies show that the more sexually degrading messages kids hear, the more likely they are to have sex at earlier ages. Do songs like this one glamorize irresponsible behavior?

Get the clean version.

This is a great song. A little iffy here and there, but the clean version is fine. Flo and Nicki are a great pair. They should do more work together.
