Jessie J has revealed she is planning to move to the US within the next 18 months

Jessie J is moving to the United States.

The London-born singer, 26, is currently promoting new single 'Bang Bang', a collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande - and says that she has plans to get her own place in the States.

She told the KISS FM UK Breakfast Show: "I'm kind of 50/50 there and within the next kind of 18 months I'm gonna basically get a place in LA or New York."

Jesse explained the unusual way in which her new single came about, saying: "I got played the song and I was like, 'I have to record this'. [I] put my vocal down and then Ariana Grande heard it and she was like, 'I wanna put a verse on it'.

"Then Nicki heard it and I mean, I had tried to get Nicki on 'Do It Like A Dude'... I didn't even know she was gonna like really do it. They sent me a verse and I cried."

Jesse also hinted at a collaboration with fellow Brit Tinie Tempah, dropping some subtle hints to presenter Melvin O'Doom as she revealed that the pair now share the same manager.
