Camila Cabello has announced a new album, Familia, and the release of her single “Bam Bam,” which features Ed Sheeran. Camila spoke with Apple Music about how she and Sheeran created the song. “So we had a verse different chords, and we had this chorus, and it basically came from the idea of a lot of my favorite Latin music that I listened to growing up, lyrically, they have this life message in a song and it’s very mostly this theme of, ‘I’m heartbroken and sometimes life sucks,’ but having a sense of humor about it and being like, ‘That’s f***ing life,’ said Cabello. Cabello said she wanted to make an English song that made her feel like the Latin songs she enjoyed during childhood. When Ed came on board she was in a different place and Ed wanted to change the chords on the verse, so Cabello and her collaborators had a morning to write, record, and finish the song.
