Jessie J dropped her mega collaboration, “Bang Bang,” which features Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, on Tuesday morning and it’s pretty clear it will be a big summer hit.
Within hours, the track went straight to the Top 10 0f the iTunes chart.
And that achievement is “so exciting,” Jessie tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “It feels like a real fresh start and having Ariana and Nicki on it is just a blessing. I just can’t wait to take it around American like a little present in my pocket, like, ‘Here ya go. Let’s sing it and listen it.’ It’s a really exciting time.”
essie couldn’t have two more different collaborators on “Bang Bang.” While Nicki is known for being provocative, Ariana comes off pretty sweet and innocent. So where does Jessie fall?
“I’m probably in between both,” she jokes. But as for the “Problem” singer being “corrupted” by Jessie and Nicki while working with them, Jessie says, “I want Ariana to be herself totally. She wanted to be on the song and she sings it so good. So if you can sing it that good, then you have to be a little bit crazy sometimes. Yeah, she’s wicked.”
