Camila Cabello’s long-awaited album Familia is here featuring her collaboration with Ed Sheeran, “Bam Bam.”
The track seemingly references her breakup with Shawn Mendes and in a new interview with ET, Cabello opened up about how the recording process was ‘cathartic.’
“It’s me kind of singing anything that I think about and feel into a microphone,” she said. “I do like seven takes of that. I do that for like 25 minutes, and then me and my collaborators talk about it. Then we are like, ‘Oh, you said this, that was really cool.’ We brainstorm, we fill it in and then that becomes a song.”
Speaking directly about ‘Bam Bam,’ Cabello told ET’s Denny Directo, “I started writing this song with my collaborators a few months back and we had this chorus idea about what it’s been like in my late teens and early 20s falling in and out of love and ups and downs of that…”
“Also reminding myself, as my mom has told me many times, ‘That’s life.’ You’re on the ground crying on the bathroom floor and then you’ll have feelings for another person again, and you’ll be crying on the bathroom floor again. And that is the cycle of change. Things just change, you never know what’s around the corner,” she says.
“I am really living the lesson in ‘Bam Bam,'” she shares. “Which is keep dancing, ’cause I dance a lot.”
