During her interview session with Glamour Magazine, Jessie J claimed that after she and Ariana Grande recorded ‘Bang Bang’, Nicki listened to the tune and decided to jump on it.
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 London, and I got sent the verse 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 get this?
However, there is no love lost between the pair as Nicki ended her tweet in which she called out Jessie with a ‘love you’ emoji.
