Ariana Grande Is Being Accused Of Ripping Off ‘7 Rings’

Ariana Grande dropped her new single and music video on Friday, January 18, with “7 Rings.” However, not long after the track went public, Ariana Grande was accused of stealing ideas for the song and the flow that she used on the beat.

One of those to call out Grande was Princess Nokia.

Princess Nokia accused Grande of ripping off her 2017 song “Mine.”

When you compare the two songs, Nokia may be on to something. She also compares her line “It’s mine, I bought it” to Grande’s “You like my hair? Gee thanks, just bought it.” The similarities have led to some people suggesting Grande is just the latest culture vulture in the music industry.

“Sounds about white,” Nokia said.

The beat has also been compared to Soulja Boy’s hit “Pretty Boy Swag Part 2.” And, quite frankly, the internet is not wrong.

Grande has yet to respond to any of the criticism.


Ariana Grande ‘7 Rings’ Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Yeah, breakfast at Tiffany’s and bottles of bubbles
Girls with tattoos who like getting in trouble
Lashes and diamonds, ATM machines
Buy myself all of my favorite things (Yeah)
Been through some bad sh*t, I should be a sad b*tch
Who woulda thought it’d turn me to a savage?
Rather be tied up with girls and not strings
Write my own checks like I write what I sing, yeah (Yeah)

[Pre-Chorus 1]
My wrist, stop watchin’, my neck is flossin’
Make big deposits, my gloss is poppin’
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (Yeah)

[Chorus]
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (Yep)

[Verse 2]
Wearing a ring, but ain’t gon’ be no “Mrs.”
Bought matching diamonds for six of my b*tches
I’d rather spoil all my friends with my riches
Think retail therapy my new addiction
Whoever said money can’t solve your problems
Must not have had enough money to solve ’em
They say, “Which one?” I say, “Nah, I want all of ’em”
Happiness is the same price as red-bottoms

[Pre-Chorus 2]
My smile is beamin’, my skin is gleamin’
The way it shine, I know you’ve seen it (You’ve seen it)
I bought a crib just for the closet
Both his and hers, I want it, I got it, yeah

[Chorus]
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it (Baby)
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it (Oh yeah)
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (Yep)

[Verse 3]
Yeah, my receipts be lookin’ like phone numbers
If it ain’t money, then wrong number
Black card is my business card
The way it be settin’ the tone for me
I don’t mean to brag, but I be like, “Put it in the bag,” yeah
When you see them racks, they stacked up like my ass, yeah
Shoot, go from the store to the booth
Make it all back in one loop, gimme the loot
Never mind, I got the juice
Nothing but net when we shoot
Look at my neck, look at my jet
Ain’t got enough money to pay me respect
Ain’t no budget when I’m on the set
If I like it, then that’s what I get, yeah

[Chorus]
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it (Yeah)
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it (Oh yeah, yeah)
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (Yep)
