“Bum Bum” follows on quickly from the South African rap group’s new single “Dazed & Confused”, released last week. It’s built around a sparse beat and looped refrain (“even in my bum”) and some great, typically sleazy lyrics. Speaking to HotNewHipHop, Ninja described the song as “my first romantic Spanish porno rap adventure”.
He continues (all sic): “So Die Antwoord. just finished our South American Lollapollooza tour with EMINEM which was fucking mental, and right after we got back from tour, a girlfriend of mine sent me a voice note in a VERY spanish accent, that ended something like: ‘I LIKE TATTOOS BUT I WONT GET A TATTOO ANYWHERE, EVEN IN MY BUM.’ She obvz meant ‘ON MY BUM’ but she don’t speak English too good, so this little mistake suddenly popped a lil idea into my head!”
“She sent a voice note back saying what i asked her to say... then i asked my boy GOD to bang me out a hot beat to run with this hype ‘EVEN IN MY BUM’ loop. GOD whipped dat shit up in like 7 minutes, send it back. Then i bust some romantic porno rhymes over that shit, slapped a crazy fuckin romantic spanish hook on it, got some girlfriends to add some sexy phrases. And thats how this beautiful banger got born.”
