New Music: Jessie J, Ariana Grande, & Nicki Minaj – ‘Bang Bang’

Bang Bang

The wait is over. Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande are here to blow your mind with their powerhouse anthem “Bang Bang,” produced by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, and Ilya. The pop divas show off their powerful pipes, while rap’s reigning queen busts a lethal verse.

The song serves as the first single from Jessie J’s third album, and will also be included on the deluxe edition of Ariana’s sophomore album, My Everything, available August 25.

According to HITS Daily Double, the trio will perform the song at the MTV Video Music Awards in L.A. on August 24.

Meanwhile, Nicki has delayed the release of her PinkPrint single “Anaconda” until August 4.

Pull the trigger on the ladies’ explosive collaboration.

    @troof, yes because its nickis song?

    Hate when you dipshits say stuff like this on sons she FEATURED on, the ARTIST ASKED and PAYED her to FEATURE so its in fact THEM after the hit.

    Are you stupid? It’s not her song, Jessie requested her to jump on it you idiot!

    “I don’t got to get a plaque, I don’t got to get awards” – Nicki Minaj(I’m The Best”)

    Nicki does not give a fuck about getting a number 1 song or chart status or awards, she does this rap shit because she loves it & she does it for her fans! You idiots are so obsessed with chart positions that you don’t know how to enjoy music anymore!

    @Yolanda,

    Do you have trouble reading? I even put ‘Lead’ in caps.

    And what ‘female rapper’ have gotten a #1 via feature that the barb has criticised?

    Because from my understanding Lauyrn was credited as a Lead on her #1 song, lil Kim was credited as a lead on hers too and so was Iggy.

    NICKI SLAYED THIS– omg I think Nicki has made more money than lil Kim has in her whole career off her FEATURES ALONE!

    [Reply]

    MRB Reply:

    @Slather, Doubt it slim Kim has been playing with money since the 90s and taught you bitches how to stunt! Nicki knows lil fags and lil girls like you will support her music which isn’t even iconic! Yet she still and will always remain a common copy of something that was already created. Its new age where you can just download albums when Kim was selling millions of record when people had to stand in line for a copy of her latest! Face it slim your out of your league.

    [Reply]

    T Reply:

    @MRB, tell me all about Kim’s “iconic” features with the likes of Ron Isley, Blu Cantrell, and Limp Bizkit and how all these “iconic” singles slayed the charts…

    Kim put in her work, she’s a legend and it can’t be denied. Fact remains she’s had her flops and is currently in the midst of quite a floppy era.

    No matter how y’all TRY to drag Nicki, and discredit her, it won’t pull Kim outta this slump. *Ye Shrug* Y’all come for Nicki like if y’all get her out of the way it’ll be what Kim needs. Y’all need to be dragging Kim’s yes men and leeches that have been dragging her down since 2008. Goodnight and God Bless.

    [Reply]

    MRB Reply:

    @T, No one is dragging Nicki down because she has her success and will continue HOWEVER again she still hasn’t had a roster of songs or even an album that is considered iconic! Kim’s first 3 albums are considered iconic because she SET the trends for what is being copied by Nicki right now!! Kim is and will always be the blueprint to Nicki’s success! Just ask Wayne who is FAMOUS for coping what was already done!

    Now you talk about featured artist that were songs that Kim did for a buzz back then but you forget that ICONS like Missy, Jay Z, BEYONCE, Biggie, Aaliyah, Christina the list goes on has already made SOLID hits! This song is nothing but “Lady Marmalade” redone with undated artist! It is what it is!

    Now it is a new time so of course young birds are going to go for the more updated material because its the now but the facts are still facts weather you want to believe them or not! In order for Kim’s fan base to be considered as leeches we would have support something that never comes with facts, gimics and a carbon copy of what was already done! Look in the mirror much lately!

    @Slather, lmfaoooooo you Tryna say nicki made more money than kim ever did ha!!! Try again lil kim has sold 65 million records w.w. jus her name alone sells .
    Fun facts:
    Hardcore : 5.7 million ww
    Notorious kim : 4.5 million ww
    Labella mafia : 4.2 million ww
    Naked truth : 2.4 million ww

    The amount of anticipation this song had from Rapup, Billboard and others for it to be so overhyped and overcrowded! Nicki came through at the end and just managed to save it but everyone knows it will still be #1 still because of all these “stans” and 3 separate fanbases…

    I don’t dislike it, but I don’t love it. I think all together it’s a little “loud”. Maybe if the beat was a little softer it wouldn’t sound like Jessie and Ariana were at war with the beat. Nicki for once did impress me. No a fan of hers, but she really showed her skills on this!

    Nicki says damn near nothing on a song and ppl come with the she killed it talk. It’s like she has no bar set for her and she say the simplest stuff and ppl will crown it. Shit is sad that these artists can feed their fans anything and they’ll call it great when there’s lyricists like Kendrick and Eminem and Cole who are sitting there making sure every line is of value cus they care about the art form. I want Nicki to be Queen but soon as I pop in some Lauryn Hill and then play Nicki I realize the queen retired along time ago. Damn music is becoming something else

    We are crowning her because no other female rapper can spit like her in any song. Y’all look into lyricism and meaning too much and keep failing in English.

    The beyonce effect has left little to no new talent for the urban crowd thus leaving most of you to criticize what we have left as artists. If only you guys can open your eyes and look from outside and notice what’s going on. All I see are dumb debates amongst the commenters. Nothing uplifting and no encouragement for a new artist to expand in this current market. Not everything is about number 1 in this market.

    I understand stanning for idol but damn yall take shit to seriously. First of all stop comparing Nicki to Kim because they sound nothing alike, their flows are COMPLETELY different from eachother. Honestly this is a very good song but its no Lady Marmalade. Maybe if you would stop comparing the two you could actually appreciate the song instead of sending out blind hate because you dont like the person thats on it. Let it be about the music for once.

    Ive seen very little mention of the Jesse and Ariana and their beautiful voices on the track.

    It erks me to see yall think that these ladies are desperate for a number one, when to me it sounds like they’re just having fun. why cant you just have fun and enjoy the song for wat it is. Instead of comparing it to artists that have no relevance to this track

She has no identity she hasnt brought anything new to hip hop wheres the impact yall delusional as hell!

    @HipHopHead, I’m a Nicki fan but I have to say Nicki couldn’t touch Lauren hills lyrics with a 10 foot pole. Her vocabulary. Metaphors. Word play. Over all content. Nicki will never. And Lauryn still holds the title for the most classic female hip hop album of all time. Nicki hasn’t made a classic album for me yet. But I feel like once she steps away from feeling the need to make bird music for these tacky ass ghetto barbz she will really make a classic album. She has the potential to do it. I’m a Nicki fan but I refuse to call myself a damn barb. That shit is so corny.
    SN: You guys should listen to lauryn hills verse on this song called “How Many Mics”. I think it pretty much sums up how I feel about Nicki’s musical direction right now.
