The trio’s collaboration leads today’s Chart Update, pushing last week’s Number 1 Changing by Sigma and Paloma Faith down to second place.
Bang Bang, which trails Jessie’s third album Sweet Talker, has already found success across the globe; entering the Top 10 in America, Australia and across Europe.
If it manages to hold its current spot until the weekend, Bang Bang will serve as Jessie’s third Number 1 single after Price Tag and Domino, both of which were chart-toppers in 2011.
It will also mark Nicki’s first ever UK chart-topper and Ariana’s second Number 1 in the country, following the Iggy Azalea-assisted Problem earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off is up two places to Number 3, Calvin Harris and John Newman’s former Number 1 Blame is at 4, and Lilly Wood & Robin Schulz’s Prayer In C rounds out the Top 5.
New entries and high climbers
Further down the chart, Lewis Jankel aka Shift K3Y starts at Number 13 with I Know. The track follows up the UK DJ and producer’s breakthrough hit Touch, which peaked at Number 3 on the chart in April this year.
Hozier ‘s Take Me To Church climbs to Number 29 on today’s Update after entering the Top 40 last week seven weeks after its release, and Bristol-born DJ Redlight debuts at 36 with 9TS (90s Baby).
Following the success of Sheridan Smith’s new ITV biopic Cilla, the legendary singer’s former Number 1 Anyone Who Had A Heart could re-enter the chart this Sunday. The track - which originally hit the top spot in 1964 - sits just outside the Top 40 mid-week, currently at Number 46.
