“MAMIII” by Becky G. & Karol G
By the looks of things, even though the official title of this song is “Mamii”, it is actually an alternate spelling of “mami”. And mami, as you may already know, is a popular Spanish-language slang which is often used to refer to an attractive, or let’s say more generally a poppin’ woman – a boss chick, if you will. And such is how the vocalists come off on this song.
With that established, what we’re dealing with here is the ladies addressing an ex. More to the point is that this guy(s) wants to reignite their romance, but Becky and Karol aren’t having it. Whatever it is the addressee has done in the past has achieved the goal of permanently pissing the vocalist off. As such most of the lyrics are dedicated to, most simply put, dissing dude.
Besides that, this track also possesses what can be deemed an anthem element. And in that regard what it appears the two G artists are saying, as translated into English, is that likewise their fellow ‘mamis’ shouldn’t have to settle for a lover who mistreats, or it would appear more specifically cheats on them.
