Album: Bluebird of Happiness (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Tamar Braxton samples Sister Nancy's "Bam Bam" during this track. The dancehall legend's reggae staple has showed up on a number of other cuts including Lauryn Hill's "Lost Ones," Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth's "The Basement," Kanye West's "Famous" and Jay-Z's "Bam."
  • Braxton explained her choice of sample to Billboard:

    "First of all, I don't know if everybody knows that I love reggae music, but I love to go to the islands and get my whine life on. When I heard ['Bam Bam'], I just felt connected to it. Everybody wants to be accepted, everybody wants to know they got that special thing that attracts that special person."
