When I interviewed director Hannah Lux Davis back in January 2016, she was still celebrating the success of her collaboration with Ariana Grande, Jessie J, and Nicki Minaj. At that time, “Bang Bang” was the biggest budget music video she had worked on. As you read this, the video has 1.6 billion views on YouTube!
