Nicki Minaj Hits Back at Jessie J’s Claim She Pursued ‘Bang Bang’ Without Being Asked

Published: Thursday 5th Aug 2021 by Rashad

The 2014 hit, ‘Bang Bang,’ may be the highest RIAA-certified song of Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj‘s respective careers (as we reported here), but – despite the song’s massive success – there appears to be a bit of confusion about its origin story.

In celebration of its 7th anniversary last week (July 28), J took to ‘Glamour’ magazine to dish on the tune’s history – namely how she connected with Grande and Minaj in the first place.  While the tale seemed harmless to some, Nicki has taken umbrage with the description of how her sizzling Rap verse was added to the mix.

See what she said inside:

As seen in the excerpt above, J’s rendition of the ‘Bang’ origin story suggested Minaj proactively requested to be part of the song (despite not being asked).  The Rap Queen remembers things differently it seems.

Taking to Twitter late Thursday night (August 5), the femcee relayed:

    IMO I always thought Jessie J used two popular artist to have a hit song because if she would’ve released by herself it would’ve flopped. It’s sad that how big the song was Jessie was the lease memorable part about it.

      Gurl, dont even try it.
      Jessie was hot back then , the same way dua is hot right now

      Price tag

      These were hits.

      • Meme August 6, 2021

        That’s a lie. Jessie literally has no other U.S hits. They struggle with her launch as talented as she is it never happened for her.

    Nicki it’s not that deep. Grow up

    • Carlitos August 5, 2021

      Right, she always has a mf attitude. She needs to calm her fkng old ass down.

    • Mr. RCW August 6, 2021

      F*** what you’re talking about…Jessie said something inaccurate and Nicki cleared it up. Why you mad?

    Sticki Minge always trying to turn a nice, positive story in to some sort of conflict.

    If you don’t know what Minge is, look it up on the Urban dictionary….

    Aww Poor Jessie…
    Sis was just trying to convey she was happy and privileged to have Nicki’s interest and participation in her track but still got shot in the cross fire smh.
    I mean I guess reading it quickly the first time around, you can get confused with the tone of what she is saying and how it was said.
    But then reading it the second time around, it’s easy to decipher what she TRULY meant.
    Nicki just just needs to shut up though. As influential of a celeb as she is, she needs to learn that not everything needs to be said or reacted to at this stage in her career.
    You still got coin from bang bang so who gives a f*ck!
    I would of let Jessie have her moment and think whatever she wanted to on the matter as I continued to click my way to the bank to cash her check AND mine honey…cha-Ching!

    By “we”, Jessie means her and Ariana, not the label.

    “This was said by another artist recently as well”

    She’s talking about doja cat.

    Nicki u are so bitter.
    After everything u have achieved, u still dont have happiness and peace of mind, so what’s the point?

    I can bet u are not happy in ur marriage to that registered sèxxxx offender and this is u lashing out.

    U made a huge mistake and now u are stuck with a child fathered by a registered seèxxxxx offender.

    • You’re Gagging and that’s OK! August 6, 2021

      Clarkson shut up I can bet you are not happy in life. With how you insult Normani all day every day on this blog. So shut the f*** up hypocrite

    • Becky Goodhair August 6, 2021

      Doja huh?

    Nicholas, it’s NOT that deep. You just came at this girl sideways and for what? Because, as you claim, you still got paid, 🤷🏾‍♂️. TF are you always on 10 about? Girl FY seriously, don’t nobody even bump your sh*t anymore so you should be taking every chance you get to kiss ppl asseś instead of showing yours. Dried up a*** has been.

    Y’all think this is her Diva moment? Try harder…. Arianna… you act like a Chihuahua 🤣😂🤣 of course you need to hear the track before you recorded it. Logic! Hello💅🏿

  10. Your Name August 6, 2021

    Nicki is so miserable….

  11. Farrahs Luggage August 6, 2021

    This was so uneccessary and rude by Nicki. Let’s not forget, up until that point, “Bang Bang” was Nicki’s biggest hit (until Anaconda a few months later). Nicki is SO NASTY AND SO RUDE!!! I’m glad she’s no longer relevant on any chart, or any history book. No room for nasty attitudes!!

    • Detruth August 6, 2021

      This is why I never cared for her as a person. Nick is talented but she came in the game disrespecting the female rappers that came before her. I have never supported her career with my $ outside of the occasional stream.

  12. Munchie August 6, 2021

    Wow! Did Nicki just really blow down on Jessie J like that??? Smh. Wow. It wasn’t shady at all. How could Nicki think that? I mean she said she felt like she WON having you on the track. Hell, Normani said the same thing about Cardi b being on the “Wild side” track and she didn’t flip the script. That’s how you know Nicki minaj is b*** hurt about something. … You rich… married… with a whole ass family and accolades that could run circles around any artist within the past century almost…. why are you so mad?

  13. Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 August 6, 2021

    Nicky still has a case of ungrateful angry black woman
