Jessie J + Ariana Grande + Nicki Minaj’s “Bang Bang” Leaks Ahead of Release

Update: The official audio for “Bang Bang” is now available here.

Nicki Minaj fans learned Sunday they would have to wait an extra week to hear her new song “Anaconda.”

If they know how to navigate Tumblr (or any other social network), they can listen to her hotly anticipated collaboration with Jessie J and Ariana Grande a day early.

“Bang Bang,” that hard-hitting collaboration, leaked across the Internet Monday afternoon. Social tracking data suggests it has already been listened to hundreds of thousands–if not millions–of time.

The collaboration, which serves as the lead single for Jessie J’s new album and as a bonus track on Grande’s “My Everything,” was due for a midnight release on iTunes. It is unclear if label Republic Records will accelerate the release in the wake of the leak.

The song officially impacts Pop, Hot AC and Rhythmic radio on Tuesday.
