According to Billboard, "Bang Bang," Jessie J's star-studded new single featuring Ariana Grande Nicki Minaj, has hit the Internet one day before its official release. Composed of piercing vocals courtesy of two contemporary crooners, as well as rapid-fire spitting from the hottest female MC on the planet, "Bang Bang" rests tidily upon the Ariana Grande assertion, "See anybody could be good to you/You need a bad girl to blow your mind." The chorus is all sass and brass, the handclaps zip by and fly back like a boomerang, and Nicki Minaj sneers, "It's me, Jessie and Ari/If they test me, they sorry."
Produced by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha and Ilya, "Bang Bang" leads Jessie J's new album on Lava/Republic, due out this fall. The song will also appear on the deluxe edition of Grande's "My Everything" album, which has already spawned a pair of Top 20 hits with "Problem" and "Break Free." "Bang Bang" is still expected to hit digital retailers on Tuesday (July 29), and details of Jessie J's next album -- which follows last year's overseas release "Alive" -- are forthcoming.
