Jessie J’s got a new album coming out, and the first single is considered the “Lady Marmalade” of the 2010’s! “Bang Bang” features vocals from Ariana Grande and a verse from Nicki Minaj, and will also be featured on Grande’s upcoming sophomore album My Everything as a bonus track. Bang bang, indeed! As a testament to how hot the song is, “Bang Bang” debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at no.6, which is only the second song to immediately land in the top 10 in 2014.
It’s a big year for Ariana Grande, who’s the artist that holds the current record for the highest debut on the Hot 100 chart in 2014: “Problem“, featuring Iggy Azalea, shot to the #3 position in its first week! Other big changes on the famous Billboard chart goes to pop newbie Meghan Trainor, whose body-positive track “All About That Bass” made its debut at number eight this week. Congrats!
There is no formal release date for Jessie J’s upcoming record, as well as Nicki Minaj’s. We’re waiting on both of those!
