Maybe it’s not so surprising when taking into consideration that Nicki Minaj has been a huge fan of Jessie’s work for some time now.
The two have supposedly stayed in touch ever since the British-born singer performed on ‘Idol last year.
The 26-year-old has also revealed that the title of the song will be ‘Bang Bang,’ which is also noted as the first single from her third studio album, expected to drop sometime this year.
An Ariana Grande / Nicki Minaj feature doesn’t sound like such a bad idea, especially for Jessie who was stunned to learn that her second album ‘Alive’ was a commercial flop in Europe, selling 40,000 copies in its first week in the UK.
Speaking of the album’s reception to her fans, Jessie said: “I’m very aware of how Alive sold, which is why right now I’m working on new music to be put out ASAP.”
“I’m a businesswoman as well as an artist and I’m aware Alive didn’t do as well as Who You Are, but that doesn’t mean I’m a flop.”
Perhaps this song is exactly what the songstress needs to get people back on the bandwagon. Let’s not lie to ourselves — we all know Jessie can sing.
Anyway, we’re hearing that the song won’t be unveiled until July 29th where it’ll receive immediate radio play and presumably find its way onto iTunes a few days after.
Could this possibly be Jessie J’s comeback single?
