We started this week knowing that two of the world’s best-known artists will release a collaboration together. Camila Cabello and Ed Sheeran will join forces on Bam Bam, a song that will be part of Camila’s new album and will be released on March 4th.Cabello was in charge of breaking the news through a post on her Instagram.
“Bam Bam. March 4th with @teddysphotos, one of my favorite people and artists ever. Also my bday is the day before so triple win”wrote the singer.
This new song will follow Don’t Go Yet and Oh Na Na, the first two singles from Camila’s upcoming album. It’s her third solo album entitled Familia, which has been under construction for a couple of months with great love and care and for which we don’t yet know the release date.
Not only will it be a gift for all of Camila and Ed’s fans, but it will also be a gift from the Cuban to herself, since, one day before Bam Bam arrives to our hands, she will celebrate her 25th birthday.
Camila has commented that this new album was inspired by spending more time with her family during the confinement due to the COVID-19 pandemic and that this experience has helped her to return and rekindle her Latin roots.
“I think being in Miami for so long and having more family around me and speaking more Spanish made me feel, I don’t know, it just brought me back. I think my roots were deeper in a way that I really needed. And I think this album for me was a manifestation“, she said in an interview with Apple Music.
The artist had previously collaborated with Ed Sheeran on the 2019 track South of the Border, in collaboration also with rapper Cardi B. However, this song was framed in Sheeran’s album of collaborations and not in any Cabello album. In addition, it’s known that the two artists wrote together the song The Boy which, unfortunately, never saw the light of day.
On the other hand, already a few months ago, the English singer had already talked about this work saying that Camila had already sent him a song to record together. So, for the most fanatic fans, this collaboration was already long awaited.
