Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande release ‘Bang Bang’

July 31 16:26 2014

After weeks of snippets, Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande have released their explosive new single, “Bang Bang.” The gritty new track features fiery vocals from Jessie and Grande and quick bars from Minaj.

The sexy tune starts out with Jessie j singing. “She got a body like an hourglass, but I can give it to you all the time/She got a booty like a Cadillac, but I can send you into overdrive (oh)” with her high-yet-strong pitched voice. Grande plays up the metaphors to when she starts her verse with “She might’ve let you hold her hand in school, but I’mma show you how to graduate.” Minaj plays with the metaphors the most with lyrics like “Kitten so good/It’s dripping on wood/Get a ride in the engine that could.”
The song was first announced, a month ago and since then, all three women have released snippets of their parts. The song is off of Jessie’s upcoming album and Grande’s sophomore effort My Everything due out August 25th. It’s unclear whether or not the song will be included on Nicki Minaj’s set-list for The Pink Print.
The catchy chorus and star-powered features helped rocket this song to to the top of the ITunes singles chart. This marks Ariana Grande’s 5th number one on the ITunes chart, Nicki’s first top 10 on the chart since “Pills n’ Potions” and the first top 10 for Jessie j since “Domino.”
