Jessie J has ample cause to smile tonight. For, current single ‘Bang Bang’ has bolted straight to the top of the Official UK Singles Chart.

Details below…

Though the vocal powerhouse is ‘Burnin’ Up’ US iTunes with her new single of the same name, the Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj assisted ‘Bang’ has just been released on home soil and has, upon its arrival, become the singer’s fourth British chart-topper.

In achieving the feat, the Max Martin produced track joins ‘Price Tag’, ‘Domino’, and ‘Laserlight’ on her list of UK number ones.

The co-billed Minaj will be celebrating too. For, the track becomes her first ever British chart-topper. Prior to now, 2012’s ‘Starships’ – which peaked at #2 – was the closest she’d come.

As for Grande, ‘Bang’ serves as her second offering to nab the top spot, after ‘Problem’ hit #1 earlier this year.

The song’s success gives ample ammo to J’s third studio album, ‘Sweet Talker’, which arrives in stores on October 13th.

*************

Kudos to Jessie and co! The track is entirely deserving.

  10. NOLIES September 28, 2014

    Good for them, just too bad Jessie J OVERSINGS to the point the production is not even noticeable, Ariana sounding like she has a lisp and is stuffing another d*** in her throat, and Nicki giving the usual Lil’ Kim Notorious K.I.M. watered down, untalented rap verse. They are lessors to those before them. Try again clones.

    • Did you say Justin Bieber,one Direction,miley,lady gaga or beyoncè (My Gal G dragged Molly on twitter) September 28, 2014

      gal how many lil Kim albums does nicki have let to copy after that suck my d*** replica reject anaconda

        Incase u didn’t read the first time

        “Nobody really cares about the uk I mean this site wouldn’t be s*** if it wasn’t for US artists so I’m confused …”

        NOT CHANGING F*** nobody is checking for the UK based artists promoted on this blog, only the US ones

        read the comments

      • There once was a pimp and his h**…. September 29, 2014

        “Nobody really cares yet your ass is using a website owned by an English man who also covers UK artists so I’m confused….”

        Right, nobody is checking for UK based artists yet the comments on the UK artists’ posts says otherwise dumbass. Read the comments. Then again why would anyone expect logic from a Bozo the clown stan.

    Worst song of 2014. Jessie and Ariana’s over singing is disgusting. The tacky gospel choir. You know a song is absolute s*** when Nicki is the best part.

    • Proud-Arianantor September 28, 2014

      Girl wtf is wrong with you?
      You are constantly bitter and throwing hate around
      You need Jesus and
      A d*** in your mouth

      • Rosie September 28, 2014
