Jessie J is ready to settle the score after a surprising response was casted by the American rapper Nicki Minaj.
According to Jessie J in an interview, the English belter said,
“Bang Bang” was a song that already existed. I didn’t write “Bang Bang.” Max Martin wrote “Bang Bang,” and Arian 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. I’ll never forget: I was in my bedroom in my flat in the 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 f@#k did I land this?” I literally felt like I’d won a competition.“
As seen in the excerpt, to some it may have been harmless but obviously that wasn’t the whole truth and Nicki was not having it.
Onika shortly took to Twitter to address it;
I didn’t hear the song & ask 2get on it. The label asked me2get on it & paid me. How would I have heard the song? Weary face chiiille what am I the damn song monitor? Snoopin around for songs chile?Face with tears of joyThis was said by another artist recently as well. Yallgotta stop“
However, Jessie J has made U-turn to readdress it, saying;
“I respect you publicly being yourself @nickiminaj • So here I am being myself.
This is a video of me back in 2015 on stage taking the piss out of myself which is basically an hour of my set 🥲
It was made into a meme about 2 weeks ago. Is that what this is really about? And where this weird energy between us began?
Or maybe it was when you used me as a stair rail at the AMAs. That was also funny af 😂
If we can’t laugh in the lives we have been blessed with. What’s the point. It really isn’t that deep.
From the moment I met you to now I have shown you nothing but love and gratitude for how f***ing blessed I was to have you and @arianagrande who btw wrote Bang Bang with the insanely talented Max Martin which I found out today. Jesus. What a day. Sorry Ari. I never knew. Wild.
“I felt like I had won a competition” did back then and still do now.
I’m the first person to admit Bang Bang would NEVER have been what it was without you guys.
I’m sorry I got the story wrong all these years, I was told you heard the song and wanted to be on it by someone clearly gassing me up at the label. (Bless them and my naive ass) Thank you for clarifying I was wrong on that and Do it like dude 😂 Told me huh.
What a way for us to celebrate the 7 year anniversary of the song. 😩😂 Should we all go for dinner? No… Probably not right.. Too soon? Bang bang part two?… No…. Ok got it. Do it like a dude remix? Ok. I’ll stop.
Look, the song did it’s damn thing. I will never say you asked to be on the song ever again. Although all this drama means memes and man have the memes of me have kept me entertained all day. Swipe for a good old laugh.
Always love and light from me babes 🤍“
