Fifty Shades Darker had its ups and downs, but one thing that always benefits the franchise is its music. The movies haven’t disappointed with their sexy singles and social media came alive when the news broke about Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift doing a collaboration the single “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.” Of course, the Fifty Shades soundtrack also has songs from other talented singers such as Halsey, John Legend and Sia. But one that really caught Generation Z’s ears was Bom Bidi Bom.
At first you think, “Really?! Nicki Minaj and Nick Jonas sang together?” It’s pretty unbelievable, but once you get past that and accept the idea, you realise that their collaboration is fire. Let’s face it, the mixture of Nick’s sultry tone and Nicki’s wild rapping skills is a combination that was always going to be a money maker. We wonder why it has taken them so long to work together.
The song definitely delivers the sex appeal and spark we always crave from a new piece of music. You can’t help but fall in love with the beginning, lose yourself in the middle, and find yourself wanting to listen to it all over by the end. I may have broken the repeat button due to this amazing song.
At the beginning of the track, Minaj captivates you with her ‘uh-huh, yeah’, charming you with that sex appeal. And then Nick chimes in with ‘yeah’ and just like that the song becomes one our favourites on the entire soundtrack. The song as a whole gives off super steamy vibe, which is why you can see why it was included in the Fifty Shades Darker movie. You are allured in straight away and then Jonas begins with his smooth voice on the first verse and you have no choice but to listen till the very end. I wasn’t a huge fan of Nick Jonas before, but this song has converted me into a fan.
Moving onto the chorus, which is undeniably catchy, Nick Jonas does the song and lyrics justices as his voice melts in with the chorus. You’ve only got to listen to the song once and it will be stuck in your head the whole entire day, making you want to groove.
For you ladies “You play the front, I’ll play the back, you’ll be the first, I’ll be the last..’’ Hearts exploding yet or no?
Minaj makes her mark in the song with her own verse which is oh so Nicki Minaj. And because we don’t want to ruin the song for someone who hasn’t listened to it we won’t give away much, but the line we can give away is this. “I’m about to blow and I ain’t talkin’ Samsung” How can any song of Nicki be complete without sexual references right?
But to round up, Generation Z loves, “Bom Bidi Bom” and it’s definitely a vital part of the overall soundtrack. The song alone is enough reason why we want more collaborations between Nicki Minaj and Nick Jonas. They complement each-other and we are so glad they teamed up for this sexy song.
