"BAMBAM" is a song by Ängie in collaboration with Harrison First on their EP Each Other as the lead single and first track. It was released on June 14th, 2019, with the music video being released later on June 20th, 2019. The song is also featured on their debut album, Not Pushing Daisies, as the fifth track.

Background

In an interview, Ängie and Harrison First said about the making of the video: "We found a common base to stand on, and it allowed us to create at a higher level throughout, from music to photography and film. [...] Everything was communicated absolutely perfectly, from the guitar riffs in the song to the pitch and the creative direction."[1]

The video tells the story of the EP. It's about a couple that just got married, and although they are dear, there is no passion. Therefore, for example, you will notice that Harrison First is not at all interested and sometimes disappears into other thoughts, while Ängie is just trying to make things work.

On August 21st, 2020, Harrison First leaked a demo of the song in a Telegram Group for some fans. The demo had a different instrumental and an aditional vocal outro with new lyrics.

Theme

"BAMBAM" is a love song where Ängie talks about herself and her intentions with her romantic interest. In the context of the EP, this the starting point of the relationship narrated by Ängie throughout the three tracks.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Come on, baby, let me make you feel good
I know I'm just a project, baby, from the hood
You know that I think that you're really cool
Just wanna take a dip into your swimming pool
So listen to me close, I'll tell you real slow
My number one rule is to go with the flow
My number one rule is to go with the flow
And my number two rule is don't fuck up the flow (Badam, bam)

[Pre-Chorus]
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Bam bam

[Chorus]
I could be your bassline, you could be my drum
Only as long as I think that you are fun
Pretty boy, come over here and get you some
Kiss me hard and maybe we could share my gum

[Post-Chorus]
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Bam bam

[Verse 2]
Come on, babe, I wanna have a good time
I wanna get you wasted or a little high
Baby, I am yours for a little while
But only for today 'cause I'ma stay wild
Soak and wet, I feel just like a swimming pool
Play it right or I'll leave you in the blue
I ain't wasting time 'cause I got things to do
You only got tonight, so baby boy come through (Badam, bam)

[Chorus]
I could be your bassline, you could be my drum
Only as long as I think that you are fun
Pretty boy, come over here and get you some
Kiss me hard and maybe we could share my gum

[Post-Chorus]
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Bam bam

[Verse 1]
Come on, baby, let me make you feel good
I know I'm just a project, baby, from the hood
You know that I think that you're really cool
Just wanna take a dip into your swimming pool
So listen to me close, I'll tell you real slow
My number one rule is to go with the flow
My number one rule is to go with the flow
And my number two rule is don't fuck up the flow

[Pre-Chorus]
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Bam bam

[Chorus]
I could be your bassline, you could be my drum
Only as long as I think that you are fun
Pretty boy, come over here and get you some
Kiss me hard and maybe we could share my gum

[Post-Chorus]
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam
Badam, bam bam, badam, bam bam

I see you dripping around me
Hurry up and pick me up, baby
In a minute I'll be gone, you'll see
In a minute I'll be gone
In a minute I'll be gone
