Jessie J will return later this month with a new single, “Bang Bang,” that features two of the biggest female stars in pop music today. Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj are both guest artists on “Bang Bang,” a self-described “powerhouse anthem” (thanks, press release!) due out on July 29 through Republic Records.
Max Martin, Savan Kotecha and Ilya produced the U.K. singer’s upcoming single — and as pop obsessives will note, all three of those production maestros worked on Grande’s latest smash single “Problem.” “Bang Bang” will serve as the lead single to Jessie J’s next album, due out this fall on Lava/Republic.
“Bang Bang” will also be featured on Grande’s sophomore album, “My Everything,” as a track on the deluxe edition on the full-length. The new album, due out Aug. 25, will include collaborations with the Weeknd, Childish Gambino, Zedd and A$AP Ferg.
In 2011, Jessie J invaded the U.S. Hot 100 chart with “Price Tag,” which peaked at No. 23; the following year, the British singer reached No. 6 on the chart with “Domino.” Both songs were featured on the singer’s 2011 debut album “Who You Are”; another album, “Alive,” was released overseas last fall.
