Princess Nokia accuses Ariana Grande of copying her on "7 Rings"

Princess Nokia accuses Ariana Grande of copying her on

On Friday just after midnight on the East Coast, the pop star released her newest single "7 rings" from her upcoming fifth album.

"Do that sound familiar to you 'cause that sound really familiar to me". Oh my god...ain't that the little song I made about brown women and their hair?

Drawing from the musical classic 1959 film, "The Sound of Music"'s "My Favourite Things" song, "7 Rings" is about Grande living her best life on her own terms.

Nokia posted a sardonic video on her Instagram account pointing out the similarities between the two tracks, playing clips from each song.

Nokia, who is of Afro-Puerto Rican descent, wrote "Mine" about the relationship women of color have with their hair, and didn't sound pleased that Grande, who is of Italian descent, appeared to be using that concept in her new single.


Although "7 Rings" isn't exclusively about hair, the chorus does include a reference to her hair that parallel's Princess Nokia's own chorus. "Hmm ... sounds about white".

"It was a... challenging fall day in New York", Grande told the music magazine of writing the track, likely alluding to her the aftermath of her breakup with Davidson.

Ariana Grande got a Pokemon tattoo. While we can still appreciate the empowering message behind Ariana Grande's "7 Rings", we can and should still recognize every other powerful anthem, past, present, and future. "Gee thanks, just bought it".

Wearing a ring but ain't gon be no Mrs.' and then hinting at the shopping spree with 'Buy matching diamonds for six of my b****es'.
