Nicki Minaj Corrects Jessie J After Rewriting “Bang Bang” History

She has often ignored mentions of her name in interviews, but Nicki Minaj surfaced on Thursday (August 5) evening to set a few things straight. Back in 2014, Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki took over the airwaves with their megahit single “Bang Bang,” and in a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Jessie spoke on how the collaboration came to be.

According to the singer, she and Ariana were first played the Max Martin-penned track before Nicki was able to hear and said that she had to get on the record as well. However, Nicki was made aware of the mention and took to Twitter to say that someone was reimagining history.
