Nicki Minaj responded to an incorrect statement given by Jessie J during an interview.
In a recent interview with Glamour, the ‘Price Tag’ hitmaker explained how she got to sing with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj on ‘Bang Bang’ collaboration. Jessie said: “Max Martin wrote ‘Bang Bang’, and Ariana had been played it, I’d been played it, and we both loved it. We just said, ‘Why don’t we both do it?
“So Ariana stayed on the second verse, I recorded the first verse, and then Nicki was played it in the studio and was like, ‘I’ve got to jump on this.’ We didn’t go to her and ask; she wanted to do it.”
She added: “I’ll never forget: I was in my bedroom in my flat in London, and I got sent the version with Nicki on it. I just sat at the end of my bed holding my phone, staring at the floor, going, ‘How the fuck did I land this?’ I literally felt like I’d won a competition.”

However, Nicki Minaj disagreed with the statement given by Jessie J, where she says, “We didn’t go to her and ask; she wanted to do it”. According to Nicki, the label asked and paid her to do it.

How would I have heard the song? chiiille what am I the damn song monitor? Snoopin around for songs chile?

“If we can’t laugh in the lives we have been blessed with. What’s the point. It really isn’t that deep.”
