A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that the track "Whistle" is about oral sex, although that term is not used directly. The song's chorus -- "Can you blow my whistle, baby" -- is followed by lots of other lines with an obvious double-meaning, along with a reference to drinking champagne. Flo Rida has some songs that are fine for tweens and young teens, but this is not one of them.

What's the story?
"WHISTLE" is the third single off the album Only One Rida (Part 2), the fourth record from rapper Flo Rida. The sexually charged track about oral sex ("You just put your lips together and you come real close / Can you blow my whistle baby / Slow it down, take a little longer") marks a distinct departure for the star, whose previous singles, like "Good Feeling," featured positive, mostly clean lyrics.
Is it any good?
With a slower, mellower vibe than his earlier singles, "Whistle" has a somewhat different sound than Flo Rida's typically big, booming tracks. That said, the song still includes Rida's trademark smooth delivery, backed by a lighthearted whistle that matches the track's tongue-in-cheek mood.

Does releasing an explicitly sexual song give a musician more cred? Why or why not?
This song references consequence-free oral sex. Parents may want to discuss their own values about sex and relationships.
