Boastful and bangin! Nicki Minaj, British singer Jessie J, and Ariana Grande hold nothing back—vocally—for the high-octane single, "Bang Bang." Complete with a choir and piercing vocals that harken back to the days when female collaborations were the order of the day—think Lil Kim, Mya, Pink and Christina Aguilera on 2001's "Lady Marmalade"—"Bang Bang" has all the makings of the summer's girl-power anthem.

"Bang Bang" is the first single from Jessie J's forthcoming third album, due out this fall. It'll also appear on the deluxe version of Grande's debut album. No word yet on whether it'll be on Minaj's forthcoming album.

Listen in, and tell us what you think.
