    It took the help to get her that hit. It wont last at number 1.

    • DidItOnEm July 29, 2014

      Stop worrying about Jessie J and go help Rih find another songwriters around the world.

      • Jhud July 29, 2014

        You Rihanna fans are so pathetic and insercure,..exactly like your fav.

      • FAF July 29, 2014

        Yaaaaaaaaas!!! Drag y’all KIIII KIIIII

      • Rihboy July 29, 2014

        Whats pathetic is the fact someone even likes this song. If you can call it a song. Its garbage with not one type if artistic reference. Just all hype, with no BANG. Vocals were basic and overshadowing. It sounded like gospel mixed with rnb. Such a bore!

      I support interracial relationship. And you? If you are single and open to look for interracial partners,then don’t miss it. All members in this group believe Interracial relationship. That is –► ____ “MixedPartner.C❤m “….. ___~
      Why not google it and get more information about it? You can google-►Mixed Partner

  4. BubblePopElectric July 29, 2014

    Damn Jessie J is killing it right now. Bravo!

  5. Fancy BISH July 29, 2014

    Bang Bang has a Clear Channel deal this week, no shade. It’s a common practice for the industry these days for usually the lead single from a popular artist. After this week, the song has to stand on its on to become a success. Sam, you need to understand that boo boo 😉 Anyway, congratulations to all the girls. The song should perform well on next weeks Billboard Hot 100. If they can get some streaming going this week, this thang could really debut . We all know Nicki and Ari’s fans are helping out Ms. J 😉 She need to thank the Barbz and whatever Ariana calls her fans. I think the Arianators. Ari’s fans came through for Iggy too, I know 😉 Fancy BISH give props when I see some real ish, so don’t get too cute with me today 😉 Bye!

    • GEEZUS July 29, 2014

      Who cares if it got a clear channel deal this week. It was top 5 in the wee hours in the morning and went number before 10AM. Radio didn’t do that since she just debuted it on radio. That’s all from sales hype.

      • Fancy BISH July 29, 2014

        I understand this song already had sales buzz, obviously. The song debuted on Clear Channel radio at 6 a.m. this morning too FYI. I understand how Itunes works, radio works, streaming works and youtube views work. I said no shade GEEZUS 😉

      • FAF July 29, 2014

        Chile it’s not Iggy

  6. Realness Tea July 29, 2014

    Hopefully will go top 5 on hot 100! Just kind of buzz nicki needs for this era!!

    • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 29, 2014

      Continue Too Seethe As Queen Nicki Makes U Eat Ur Words!

      • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 29, 2014

        It will so deal biitch

  8. the voice July 29, 2014

    Uh OH!

    IGGY fanz are gonna be mad.
    If “Problem” is #1 for Iggy then this is a number one for Nicki too. LOL

    Congrats to Jessie J. I hope her label promotes her in the US this time around. She needs to come do more festivals, radio, and TV in the USA

    Jessie is sooo much more talented than Rita.

    When will Rita tho??????

    • Rosie July 29, 2014

      Pretty sure Iggy fans are unbothered. She has three songs that are top 15 combined right now.

      • FAF July 29, 2014

        Doesn’t matter the album sold less than Lana
        in the US

        And don’t bother responding about ciara bc I won’t read it

  9. Rosie July 29, 2014

    Both she and Nicki need to thank God for letting Ariana get on this track.

    • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 29, 2014

      Get em bish!! Drag DEM!!!!

    • CT July 29, 2014

      Ariana was outshined on this track… but im sure she is used to being outshined by miley like lana is outshined by every pop girl and fadzalea is outshined by nicki… bye trick…

      • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 29, 2014

        Shut up

  12. Rosie July 29, 2014

    “Iggy will be history after the VMAs with her The Flop Claasic.”
    Bratz said the same thing when Pills N Plastic came out.

    • Jhud July 29, 2014

      Lmao @ “Pills N Plastic”..

      • FAF July 29, 2014

        Is that why her speech was the most memorable thing at the awards show Iggy performed twice at and she’s begging ppl to get her a VMA on twitter ?

  13. Slaylor Swift July 29, 2014

    We all know Ariana fans are the ones supporting this track… Nicki fans still haven’t got pills n potions gold & Jessie j is completely irrelevant in America.

    • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 29, 2014


  14. Molly July 29, 2014

    The only way feature artist minaj can get a hit… Lol

    • Jhud July 29, 2014

      Lol A Ciara fan talking about I see no lie’s though.

    • CT July 29, 2014

      Didnt nicki give ciara her last hit…. iggy needs these poo girls for hits nicki has her own solo hits( superbass, starships, your love, pound the alarm and many more) bye trick #2

    • ATM JAM July 29, 2014

      that’s hilarious because all of ostrich azaleas hits havE been featured and pop

  15. JOHNVIDAL July 29, 2014

    Why isn´t Sam reporting about all the constant Clear Channel deal from so many artists? You know, like he did till exhaustion a year ago with #beautiful? Or like I suppose he did with Madonna? He´s so damn rude and biased for no reason.
    About Jessie J: this is better than her appalling second album, but still not that good imo. It´s repetitive and her vocal gymnastics grew old too soon for me. I was interested in her when she first debuted, but she´s not meeting my expectations at all.

    • Kitty July 29, 2014

      But weren’t you the same little shithead that said yesterday that the song won’t do anything? eating that crow yet with all of your flop and invalid opinions?

      • JOHNVIDAL July 29, 2014

        I never said it was a fact, I said I didn´t see it being a real hit imo(if it turns out to be then good for them). And it can still happen, it is just the first day and has a clear channel deal, it could end not being a real hit. We´ve seen maaaaaaany of those.
        And btw, your comment didn´t have anything to do with what I said in this post. I was adressing Sam and its total lack of criteria.

  16. LB July 29, 2014

    I wonder where Iggy fans get the balls when the Not Classic is still not GOLD.

    Until that s*** hits platinum, Nicki Minaj remains unbothered.

    • Matt_Phoenixx △ July 29, 2014

      But everyone knows fancy only went #1 because it featured vocals from gwen stefani

      • LB July 29, 2014

        LOL Gwen Stefani.

        Her “who dat who dat” nursery rhymes certainly didn’t get her that #1.

      • Jhud July 29, 2014

        Are we going to talk about rhymes..girl, must I remind you about that a*** d***** of a song by your girl Nicki called ” Stupid H**”…

      • LB July 29, 2014

        Gurl Nicki’s worst verse is 10x better than anything Iggy’s ghost writers have written for her.

      • Jhud July 29, 2014

        Lol @ you talking about Nicki worst verse being better..does it really matter who’s verse is worst..girl please. Like your girl said..”You a stupid h**”.

    • Jhud July 29, 2014

      Girl..Nicki IS BOTHERED..otherwise, she wouldn’t be spreading those @ss cheeks.

      • LB July 29, 2014

        Bothered by who? The female vanilla ice with her nursery rhymes? Gurl sit down.

      • Matt_Phoenixx △ July 29, 2014

        People come for nicki about gimmicks, but iggy IS herself a gimmick. A white australian with a southern accent, pretending to be black.
        Minaj is unbothered as she watches her maid iggy polish those platinum plaques in nicki’s study

      • LB July 29, 2014

        LMAO I know right, what sort of mess is a b**** from New South Whales somewhere talking like Keke from the South side of Chicago; she needs several seats.

        And not having a #1 for 5 weeks and barely selling 200K, SCREAMING!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Matt_Phoenixx △ July 29, 2014

    If kloe kardashian got a black bobbed wig…..

    • CATFISH CAREY July 29, 2014


  18. Beygency July 29, 2014

    This song isn’t that great. It’s catchy but honestly Ariana & Nicki have the best parts & it’s not their song so that’s not supposed to be the point.. Oh well

    • LB July 29, 2014

      Is Pretty hurts gold yet?

      • Beygency July 29, 2014

        When whoever you Stan for is a relevant as Beyoncé let me know. Til then shop fly!

      • Beygency July 29, 2014

        & I said your fave had one of the best parts. Wtf is your problem?

  19. K July 29, 2014

    question why is everyone hating on Jessie-j, did she dis anyone of y’all faves?

  20. Barbie’s World July 29, 2014

    So glad the song is slaying, Anaconda will replace it next week though.

  21. Realest July 29, 2014

    Not y’all clinging to iTunes #1’s like it wasn’t the only major release yesterday. No competition and again it’s iTunes, not billboard so it’s pretty much irrelevant except for a “we had the biggest selling song of the day” type moment. The song is cute, will wait to see what it actually does in real time, you know, more than 12 hours after it’s release. Lmfao. I can’t with. Y’all kids!!!

    • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 29, 2014

      THANK U!!!

    • NICKIMINAJ QUEEN July 29, 2014

      bish dont act you wasnt clinging to a number one on itunes chart for iggy so stick that up your ass

    • Grandmother July 29, 2014

      Not you being pressed by someone else occupying that top spot on iTunes tho…

  22. NICKIMINAJ QUEEN July 29, 2014

    anyway i love the song if it hits number one on billboard hot 100 it would be all three of them first number one song i said it all of three bishes acting ariana grande as number one but highest she got was a 2 and the highest nicki has is a 3 so yea but always the haters have to say something to make them self feel good

    • Realest July 29, 2014

      Arianna has a number 2 on billboard but that same song went number one in the UK. Either way it was a hit bigger than Jesse or Nickis biggest.

    • Belladonna1363 July 29, 2014

      Ariana has like 3 songs now in the Top 20 on iTunes & I’m not talking Go Up then Come down songs. Lol BreakFree a EDM so mind you has stayed in the Top20 for the last 3 to 4 weeks & going up Radio & Problem is still in the Top10, Iggy’s Fancy is not even in the Top10 anymore. Lol Ariana is going to be bigger then Nicki mark my words.

  23. Tisha July 29, 2014

    Every Nicki story you can always find truth foaming at the mouth.

    I’d be seeking medical attention if anyone made me as angry as Nicki made you, but I guess after Eve, Missy, and Lil Kim failed to come back and destroy her this fool has to hyperventilate all over her keyboard.

    Really just waiting for the hitch to crack.

    • Grandmother July 29, 2014

      everyone and they’re mother knows truths raggedy mouth ass gets a crazy check.

  24. Belladonna1363 July 29, 2014

    Ok so I’m not hateing at all when I say this but every1 can see with out the NEW PRINCESS OF POP ARINA GARNDEA that this song would have gone
    No where right? Lol Like Jessise & Nicki Havn’t had a solo hit in like two years, & nicki last hit was with Bieber on #BeautyBeat&ABeat. Lol This song is like ok but Again they used Ariana because I’m sure nicki nor Jessie even listen to Ari’s music. But I guess they paid her so its all good. Lol

  25. teee July 30, 2014


  26. ~The Arcade~ July 30, 2014

    Man, this is not the business, I just heard the full song and I don’t like it. I miss Old Jessie J- #NP – DO IT LIKE A DUDE.
