Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj Shine in 'Bang Bang' Music Video
Minutes after Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj combined to perform their new smash "Bang Bang" for the first time at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (Aug. 24), the official music video for the Top 10 hit was unveiled online, and the clip did not disappoint. Watch the "Bang Bang" video, directed by Hannah Lux Davis, below:
Filmed in Los Angeles with a slew of hip backup dancers, the "Bang Bang" features Jessie J spinning in white suspenders, Grande slyly pouting while applying some makeup and Minaj arriving via slow-motion helicopter -- in a leopard-print skirt, no less! The three ladies eventually combine for a dance party on a rooftop helicopter pad, literally lighting up the skyline with their style and admiring the break-dancers from afar. Who has the best outfit of the entire video? You be the judge.
"Bang Bang" shot to No. 6 on the Hot 100 chart upon its release, and currently resides at No. 10 on the tally. Grande also has Top 10 hits with "Problem" and "Break Free," all of which will appear on her sophomore album My Everything.
Meanwhile, Jessie J will return with Sweet Talker, her first album to reach U.S. shores since 2011's Who You Are, on Oct. 14. Nicki Minaj is also prepping her third studio album, which will include her Top 20 hit "Anaconda."
