Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj release their joint single 'Bang, Bang,' and it's fantastic.
What happens when three of the biggest names in pop music all have albums coming out soon? You put them together to make a collaborative single, of course. Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande linked up to create their brand new single, 'Bang Bang,' and it sounds better than you'd ever expect.
'Bang Bang' will be included on Jessie J's upcoming album
'Bang Bang' is proof that just because it's almost August doesn't mean the title for "Song of the Summer" still isn't up for grabs. Produced by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, and Ilya Salmanzadeh - the crew behind Ariana Grande's 'Problem' - the track is an absolute smash that shows the best qualities of Jessie J, Grande, and Minaj. The song is going to serve as an album track off Jessie J's upcoming album set for release later this fall. After the disappointing sales numbers for her last record, Alive, Jessie J was in the studio hard at work earlier this year for album number three. Alive never even saw a U.S. release, so the fact that this may be her record's lead single could bode well for the record's chart potential in the future.
For Grande, she's got a new album coming out, too. Titled My Everything and set for release on August 25, 'Bang Bang' is following up her number one hit, 'Problem' and current Zedd produced single, 'Break Free.' 'Bang Bang' is going to be included as a bonus track on the deluxe edition, because it's basically way too good to simply leave off. However, for Minaj's upcoming album, The Pink Print - which is coming out someday, probably - it's not exactly known whether 'Bang Bang' will make an appearance, but Minaj does have a new single called 'Anaconda' which should be dropping soon.
