Watch A Cappella Group Question Sexually-Explicit Songs With Music Video
A high school a cappella group has made a music video to let everyone know that not all teens like those sexually-charged pop songs.
The group, known as XIV Hours, are students at Durham Academy in North Carolina and say it took them six months to put the 10-minute video together.

In the video, entitled "Lost In The Game: A Musical Story of Relationships, Sex and Gender Politics," the group performs songs including Britney Spears’ “I’m a Slave 4 U,” Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” and Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Jessie J’s hit “Bang Bang.”
The video is broken up into three acts. The first act references sexual aggression that some of the songs appear to condone, while the second act shows a young couple learning to communicate about the topic.
The third part explores the mixed messages teens send to one another that lead to a fallout and loneliness.
"We realized that we wanted to deliver an important message and inspire conversation on a larger level about relationship expectations and the mixed messages teens navigate through the music they listen to every day," the group wrote in the video's description.
