Conclusion

Pro-social Content

Regretting things left unsaid that doomed a romance, the singer asks for another shot ("Just So You Know"). "Tell Her" and "Feelin' You" express love for a special girl. Teens will think twice about drinking and driving after hearing "Invincible," the recollection of a friend's fatal accident.

Objectionable Content

Dancing in a club leads to a casual hookup on "Blow Your Mind." The despicable "Daddy's Little Girl" finds McCartney offering to help an 18-year-old lose her virginity and thumb her nose at Mom and Dad in the process ("You really want to figure out just what the other girls are talkin' about ... I think you're ready, baby"). Implied sexual encounters also create a problem on "Tell Her"; the line "I know how it feels to wake up without her" suggests there are times the singer wakes up with her. "Right Where You Want Me" hasn't crossed that line yet, but Jesse makes it clear he's interested. "Invincible" resorts to mild profanities.

Summary Advisory

With vocals reminiscent of Michael Jackson, the teen heartthrob's saccharine infatuations and tortured breakup songs share time with flirty, suggestive pop/rock. If McCartney's career doesn't stall, he looks to be headed down the same sensual path as Justin Timberlake.
