Listen to a Snippet from Jessie J, Nicki Minaj & Ariana Grande’s ‘Bang Bang’
By Marissa G. Muller
In the meantime, Jessie J previewed the song on Instagram with a quick snippet of the new tune.
As it turns out, the track isn’t an updated take on Nancy Sinatra’s song of the same title. It instead borrows from the sounds of the era, ’70s funk.
In the snippet, Jessie J sings “She got a body like an hourglass / I can give it to you all the time / She got a booty like a Cadillac / But I can send you into overdrive” over a clapping beat and a horn.
With that sound and its all-star female roster, comparisons to Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya, and Pink’s 2001 cover of “Lady Marmalade” are inevitable.
The track officially drops July 29 and will appear on both Jessie J’s upcoming album and Ariana Grande’s My Everything, the latter due out Aug. 25.
