Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj unveiled the music video for song of the Summer, Bang Bang, last night and it is everything that we hoped for and more.
Seriously, there hasn’t been this much Girl Power in one song since Geri Halliwell left the Spice Girls back in 1998.
Which we’re still not ready to talk about by the way.
Now, after waiting for WHAT SEEMS LIKE FOREVER to see the video, it seems only fitting that we have a step-by-step breakdown of it to celebrate its release.
Ariana is first to get some attention as she basically flutters her eyelashes and looks her gorgeous, adorable self whilst she pretends to apply some make-up:
A+ acting, but we think you have enough mascara on there, babes.
Then ENTER JESSIE J who looks badass as she frolicks around in the street with some randoms:
Great sunnies, Jessie, we deffo approve.
While our fave former The Voice judge hangs out in the street, Ari spends most of her time striking poses in a makeshift bedroom, kicking her legs and generally looking girly and lovable with a whole lotta pink:
Loving the customized speaker phone.
Jessie has a costume change to casually hang out on a balcony and basically flick her hair around A LOT:
She’s just no doubt really excited to have some hair after shaving it all off for charity last year.
Then just as we’re starting to get a bit used to Ariana looking cute and Jessie J flicking her hair, ENTER NICKI MINAJ.
And how does Nicki make her incredibly grand entrance into the music video of the summer?
Why, by helicopter of course – is there any other way?
Love the attitude.
Nicki does her little rap with surprisingly little twerking/ bum-revealing – seriously, after her Anaconda music video and bootylicious VMA performance we were kind of scared for what we should expect with this…
Then, to prove that our three fave girls don’t all secretly hate eachother and filmed this in seperate secret locations only for all their scenes to be edited together, they get together on a rooftop and have a little boogie:
Jessie points to the other two a lot, Ariana throws her hands up to the sky a lot, and Nicki wears a FABULOUS bra.
All in all, the video is a success.
Good job, girls – we love it.
