Not even 12 hours ago, a show-opening Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj VMA performance offered fans their first taste of "Bang Bang" the duo's new single.

The divas, along with their third collaborator Jessie J, decided this wasn't sufficient, however, debuting the official “Bang Bang” music video the same night!
