The real definition for mambo is: a latin rhythm that was born in Cuba in the 1940’s by the Lopez brothers. Although my song has merengue elements, the hook says “all I want is mambo” which in a more contextual sense is a reference to not wanting to fall in love right now. Mostly I just want to spend some of my days dancing and singing through the rhythm of mambo. Sometimes we rush into things and fall in love too quickly and forget we are young. There is nothing wrong with living in the moment and taking advantage of our short time as teenagers and young adults before committing to the big “L” word.
