Album: Fifty Shades Darker: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (2017)
Charted: 54
  • songfacts ®
  • Nick Jonas and Nicki Minaj recorded this raunchy song for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack. It is the first ever collaboration between the pop crooner and female rapper.
  • The song title is a slang term for dancing and shaking your hips. It is a reference to Selena's similarly titled "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom," but doesn't sample or interpolate the Queen of Tejano Music's 1994 tune.
  • The song was assembled by a troop of hit-making pop writers, namely Jason Evigan (Nick Jonas' "Chains"), Breyan Isaac (Flo Rida's "Whistle"), Cirkut (Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball") and Romanian production team Play & Win (Inna's "Hot").
  • During her verse, Nicki Minaj raps: "Yo, give me the muny, the yen and the pesos." She spits nearly the same lyrics on her 2010 Pink Friday song "Muny," and uses the same flow.
