Jessy Matador on stage during the Eurovision 2010 finale

When France’s state broadcaster announced that Jessy Matador would represent France at Eurovision, Eurovision fans cried Mon dieu! The lyrics to his entry Allez Ola Olé did little to promote French culture abroad: “Darling, you must get up and move your butt. Dancing, squeezed tight for a salty kiss.” And up to that point Matador (probably not his real name) was best known for shaking his hips rather provocatively in the dance troupe Les cœurs brisés (The Broken Hearts). But after Matador  placed a respectable eighth among televoters and 12th overall in Oslo, the French got over their ish and embraced the Congolese-born singer: his entry Allez Ola Olé shot to number one in France before climbing the digital charts across Europe.

Now Matador is back. In his single Bomba, the first from his new album Electro Soukouss, he once again manages to use the words “shake,” “sexy” and “body” in the same song. You can enjoy the video and nonsensical lyrics below!

Bomba:

Bombastick I like your bombastick hey ho
Bombastick je veux ton bombastick hey ho

[… passage en espagnol …]

Hey baby (baby), montre moi ton corps de rêve
Qui fait kiffer tous les bandits (bandits)
Quand tu bouges ton body
Tout le monde te regarde et applaudit
T’es belle et sexy
Bomba dans la party

Bombastick I like your bombastick hey ho
Bombastick je veux ton bombastick hey ho
Bombastick I like your bombastick hey ho
Bombastick je veux ton bombastick hey ho
Bombastick I like your bombastick hey ho
Bombastick je veux ton bombastick hey ho

Je veux te voir bouger
Vas-y remues tes formes
Suis moi tu vas kiffer
Pas moyen que tu dormes

Hey baby (baby), montre moi ton corps de rêve
Qui fait kiffer tous les bandits (bandits)
Quand tu bouges ton body
Tout le monde te regarde et applaudit
T’es belle et sexy
Bomba dans la party
