Bam Bam — a 1982 hit by legendary Dancehall singer Sister Nancy — surged to No. 1 on Reggae song charts after it was featured in an episode of Netflix’s popular crime drama, Ozark, which was released over the weekend.
The track, which was certified silver in the UK earlier this month, continues to pick up placements in popular culture — most recently as one of 47 tracks in another Netflix series called Maid, and in the James Bond flick, No Time To Die.
In its latest screen feature on season 4 of Ozark, Sister Nancy’s Bam Bam plays in a scene near the end of episode 1 — titled “The Beginning of the End” — when Sheriff Nix visits one of the show’s antagonists Helen but is instead greeted by new character, Javi, at the door. Upon being asked about Helen’s whereabouts, Javi goes to “turn the music down” as Nix makes his way inside the house. However, Bam Bam, with its iconic horns and heavy bassline, is instead turned up to maximum volume to purposely drown out the gunfire that followed, as Javi immediately turns around and shoots the sheriff in the chest and head.
