Behind the Video: Jessie J, Ariana Grande, & Nicki Minaj – ‘Bang Bang’

Girl power. After giving us a sneak peek at the video in a commercial for Beats by Dre, Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj take us behind the scenes of their music video for “Bang Bang.” The divas come together for one big party in the Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip, which was shot on the Paramount lot in Hollywood.

“The concept of the video is really about girls coming together and partying it up,” said Davis.

Jessie J pulls up to a block party on a hot summer day in her pink whip. “She really brings everybody together and they kinda start this movement through the city,” she said.

Ariana shot her solo scenes in a loft, while a bikini-clad Nick arrives to the party in a helicopter.

The video ends with a rooftop performance of them raging through the night.

Tune in to the VMAs on Sunday to see the ladies open the show and world premiere the video.
