Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj collaborated for "Bang Bang," a song which brings together three of hottest women in the US music scene today. The "Wild" singer then talked about women and feminism.

Music Times reported that snippets of the song which confirmed the Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj collaboration for "Bang Bang" were already released by "Pill N Potion" singer.

Lyrics of the song, as Music Times suggests, are "bold declaration of female power." Nicki's part goes like this:

"Bang bang cocking it / Queen Nicki dominant / It's me, Jessie and Ari / If they test me they sorry," Minaj says at one point over a raucous, hard hitting beat."

While Jessie J's is this:

"claiming that while some female may have a booty like an hourglass, she can give it to you anytime."

In other news, Belfast Telegraph quoted the "Domino" singer in an interview with Metro as saying that "people underestimate the difficulties women go through."

A proud feminist, Jessie J thinks that knowing how to stand up for oneself especially if you are a female is important.

"When you are born female, it's the most amazing thing but it's hardcore and I think people underestimate the difficulties you through being a woman." 

The 26-year-old singer rose to stardom when she hit the music scene in 2010 with her first single "Do It Like A Dude," but she elevated to worldwide prominence when her songs "Price Tag" and "Domino" were back to back hits internationally. The Telegraph reported that Jessie's status now gave her the "call the shots" instinct.

"For me, I feel confident and powerful enough that sexism doesn't affect me anymore," she explained. "That's where you have to get to but not every woman is in a position where they can't allow it to not affect them."

The former "The Voice UK" coach knows that in general, not all women can feel empowered, and she thinks that her celebrity status can be used to raise the public's awareness of such matter.

 "I feel obliged, whatever my fame is, to shed light on things that are dark. I'm lucky, [sexism] doesn't affect me anymore but millions of young women do go through it and don't know how to get out of it."

Fans can check the Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj collaboration on July 29, the official release date of the single.
