There’s Now A Solo Version Of Jessie J’s “Bang Bang”: Listen To The Hit Without Nicki Minaj Or Ariana Grande

Jessie J‘s career had just about flatlined until she hooked up with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj on “Bang Bang”. The track is a monster hit — it reached a new peak of number three on the Billboard Hot 100 this week — and has everyone excited for the Brit’s third LP Sweet Talker. So why is she systematically editing out her collaborators?

The 26-year-old dropped a rap-free edit of the smash a couple of weeks ago — bye, Nicki! — and today (September 30) a solo version arrived online. It’s always fascinating to hear different versions of a good song and Jessie easily carries “Bang Bang” on her own. The verses sound a little clumsy but her vocal runs are on point. As usual. Check it out for yourself after the jump.

Does this sound better as a solo track? Have your say in the comments below.
