Songfacts®:

  • Bad Boy Chiller Crew is a trio from Bradford in West Yorkshire comprising Gareth "GK" Kelly, Kane Welsh, and Sam "Clive" Robinson. Starting life as a group of friends uploading goofy and often gross videos to YouTube, BBCC evolved into a bassline collective. The trio took inspiration from the UK garage and bass music they grew up with in the North of England, while their often wacky lyrics are usually about girls or going crazy with their mates. "BMW" is a single from their first mixtape Disrespectful.
  • Over a two-step garage instrumentation, GK. Kane and Clive tell us about a girl who's won their heart. She's a "diva, not a keeper," a "Barbie girl, not a party girl," and not like the other ladies they hang out with. They want her to jump into their BMW so they can be together.
  • DJ Tactics supplied the beat. A fellow Bradford native and longtime friend, he handles most of BBCC's productions.
  • BMW is a German multinational corporate manufacturer of luxury vehicles and motorcycles. Their name stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke (Bavarian Motor Works). Other songs with lyrics that refer to BMW include:

    "Supersonic" by Oasis ("Can I ride with you in your BMW?").

    "Jerk Out" by The Time ("I got real bored on a Friday night, I couldn't find a damn thing to do. So I pulled out a suit about the same color as my BMW").

    "Birthday Song" by 2 Chainz ("Y'all been together ten years, you deserve a ménage. 'Specially if you put that BMW in her garage").

    "It All Adds Up To Us" by Trace Adkins ("A BMW and a GMC. One says 'her' and the other screams 'me'").

    "Fastlove" by George Michael ("So why don't we make a little room in my BMW, babe").

    "German" by E.O. ("We got Audi's, Mercedes, BMW'S, And Porsches").

    "RAPSTAR" by Polo G. ("Uh, tuned up, copped a BMW, new deposit, I picked up another bag").
