Shoot Em Up: Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj Drop ‘Bang Bang’
Nicki Minaj may have pushed back the release date for “Anaconda,” but she still has new music to share. After Monday’s leak of her bodacious “Bang Bang” collaboration with high-powered crooners Jessie J and Ariana Grande, the trio have officially released the record on iTunes.
“Bang Bang,” a sassy soundtrack to the bad girls, will be the debut single from Jessie J’s third album, her second to be released in the U.S. Grande will also add the Max Martin-produced song to her discography with a spot on the deluxe edition of My Everything, out August 25. No word on whether Minaj will feature the track on The Pink Print, but rumor has it that the three will perform the modern-day “Lady Marmalade” at the MTV Video Music Awards next month.
One thing we can bet on is that there’s a video on the way.
“We fly to L.A. in about six hours to shoot the video,” Jessie J told Elvis Duran and The Z100 Morning show today. “Honestly, I’m so excited! We shoot the video tomorrow and the next day. Me, Nicki, and Ariana are all available which is rare in itself—no blue screen, no green screen, no screens!”
Listen to “Bang Bang” below and await the badass visuals that will undoubtedly follow.
