Songfacts®:

  • Fuerza Regida is a regional Mexican band based in San Bernardino, California. In August 2022, they signed with Sony Music Latin in partnership with Rancho Humilde Records. This romantic cumbia-grupera song earned the band their first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
  • "Bebe Dame" is Spanish for "give me, baby." The title finds Fuerza Regia frontman Jesus Ortiz Paz pleading with a former love to return to him. He wants to repair their relationship after it took a wrong direction and try again.
  • The song is a collaboration with another regional Mexican band, Grupo Frontera, which is based in McAllen, Texas. It marks Regida and Frontera's second collaborative effort in 2022, following "911."
  • The romantic love song entered the Hot 100 after it went viral on TikTok. Tens of thousands of TikTokkers used a portion of the track's audio for their videos. Grupo Frontera previously charted when their norteño cover of "No Se Va" went viral on the platform.
  • Jesus Ortiz Paz produced the gentle ballad. He co-wrote it alongside Miami-based Mexican songwriter/producer Edgar Barrera (Gera MX & Christian Nodal's "Botella Tras Botella," Selena Gomez's "Baila Conmigo," Maluma's "Hawái").
