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

Positive Messages

The song is about hooking up with multiple people at a club.

What 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.

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.

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?

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.

Talk to your kids 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?
