Jessie J. releases the video for Bang Bang ft. Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande from her album Sweet Talker. The video is directed by Hannah Lux Davis and features Minaj rapping and dancing on a rooftop helicopter landing pad.
I heard it and was like: “If I don’t record this, I’m an idiot.” I went in the studio that day and recorded it, sent it to Max Martin with some of my changes and obviously I put my vocal down on it. He phoned me and was like, ‘I want to get Ariana on it’, and I was like, ‘I think this is an amazing idea’. And then Nicki heard it and wanted to jump on it, so in an instant it was obviously the first single.
