The Nick Jonas and Nicki Minaj collaboration on the “50 Shades Darker” soundtrack is finally out. The slow burner is a little similar to the duet from Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift for the same project, but not nearly as moody. The track is definitely a Nick song with a Nicki feature, but the power dynamics might not be as simple as they first appear.
While Nick takes the lead, the lyrics make it sound like Nicki’s the one wearing the pants. Nick might not have all of his brother Joe Jonas’ kinks, but “Bom Bidi Bom” feels like a step towards DNCE’s “Body Moves.”
Listen to “Bom Bidi Bom” below.
