Ariana Grande’s ‘7 Rings’ an ‘anthem’ for women empowerment

Ariana Grande in 7 Rings music video

Puerto Rican rapper Princess Nokia has called out Ariana Grande for plagiarizing her sound on Grande's new single, "7 Rings".

According to sources involved in the recording, "7 Rings" was not just a random song title as the name was inspired by something that happened shortly after her breakup with Pete Davidson, TMZ reported.

And now it looks as though Princess Nokia has also been put out by the tune, as she's just gone and compared it to her song, Mine.

Frasqueri asks, "Does that sound familiar to you? Hmm... sounds about white". Oh my God!' Nokia said in the clip. The song also references buying hair like Grande's song and appears to allude to the cultural significance of hair for black and brown women: "How we choose to wear our hair is our personal choice, ok?"




Princess Nokia posted a video of herself reacting to both tracks, telling the camera, "Does that sound familiar to you?" The song is something of a victory lap for the singer, celebrating her success: "I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it".

In Mine, the lyrics go: 'Rock my many styles then go natural for the summer / Hair blowing in the hummer / Flip the weave, I am a stunner / It's mine, I bought it / It's mine, I bought it'. The song sampled "My Favorite Things" from the hit film "Sounds of Music".

In the song, Ariana sings, "Been through some bad s**t / I should be a sad b***h / Who woulda thought it'd turn me to a savage..."
