Sister Nancy’s “Bam Bam” Featured In New @Netflix Series, “Maid.”


It’s always good to hear some of our favourite songs in TV and Film, especially when you’d least expect to hear Dancehall, Reggae, or even Soca music in them. Known as one of the most sampled Dancehall track, Sister Nancy’sBam Bam” is still doing its rounds. This time around, it has made an appearance in Netflix’s newest series, “Maid“.

Featured in episode 3 of “Maid”, “Bam Bam” was produced by Winston Riley and released in 1982. It created history as it put Sister Nancy on the map for being the 1st Female Dancehall Artist, and the first to tour internationally as one.

That sweet Reggae music continues to seep through some of your favourite shows, and it won’t stop anytime soon. Recently, the 3rd season of the FOX TV show “9-1-1” premiered, and fans of the show were overjoyed. With stars like Angela Bassett and Jennifer Love Hewitt, the series follows the lives of Los Angeles first responders: Police Officers, Paramedics, Firefighters, and Dispatchers. On the premiere episode, viewers got a double dose of Reggae as Jamaican Band Toots & The Maytals and UK Band The English Beat’s music were featured.

Toots and The Maytals were the first to bat as their classic track, “54-46 Was My Number” was featured in a scene, then The English Beat’s “Doors Of Your Heart” followed soon after in another. “54-46” was released in 1968 and 1969, and produced by Leslie Kong. It has been sampled by Rapper Foxy Brown, Major Lazer, and Christiana Aguilera. “Doors Of Your Heart” was released in 1981, and was featured on the Band’s Sophomore album, “Wha’ppen?“.
