Jessie J took to Instagram on Friday (August 6) to apologize to Nicki Minaj over the confusion that erupted following her remarks about their “Bang Bang” collaboration with Ariana Grande in 2014.
“I respect you publicly being yourself @nickiminaj . So here I am being myself,” Jessie captioned her post.
“Nicki was played it in the studio and was like, ‘I’ve got to jump on this.’ We didn’t go to her and ask; she wanted to do it,” Jessie J had recalled in an interview with Glamour.
Minaj responded to Jessie J’s quotes on Thursday, tweeting, “Babe @JessieJ I didn’t hear the song and ask 2get on it. The label asked me2get on it and paid me. How would I have heard the song? chiiille what am I the damn song monitor? Snoopin around for songs chile? This was said by another artist recently as well. Yallgotta stop LoveU.”
“From the moment I met you to now I have shown you nothing but love and gratitude for how f***ing blessed I was to have you and @arianagrande, who btw wrote ‘Bang Bang’ with the insanely talented Max Martin, which I found out today. Jesus. What a day. Sorry Ari. I never knew. Wild,” Jessie wrote in her post. “I’m the first person to admit ‘Bang Bang’ would NEVER have been what it was without you guys.”
“I’m sorry I got the story wrong all these years, I was told you heard the song and wanted to be on it by someone clearly gassing me up at the label. (Bless them and my naive ass),” she continued. “Thank you for clarifying I was wrong on that … What a way for us to celebrate the 7 year anniversary of the song. Should we all go for dinner? No. Probably not right.. Too soon? Bang bang part two?. No.. Ok got it… Look, the song did it’s damn thing. I will never say you asked to be on the song ever again.
Jessie J concluded, “Always love and light from me babes.”
