Ariana Grande Has Been Called Out Over 7 Rings Track

Ariana Grande

Her latest, "7 Rings", includes a surprising/creepy sample of The Sound of Music classic "My Favorite Things", but with a hip-hop beat and a noticeable absence of raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Say what you want about the quality of her music (we have), but the hitmaker knows what her audience is looking for and she delivers every time.

Grande reportedly went out with her friends to a jewellery store and bought seven engagement rings for them.

The singer split from the SNL comedian one month after her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller suddenly passed away - and Ariana references how tough the past year has been in her new song.

Playing a clip from popstar's new hit, the rapper smirked into the camera as she quipped: 'Does that sound familiar to you? "Ain't that the little song I made about brown women and their hair? Hmmmm... sounds about white", Nokia added.

Have a listen to both tracks and tells us in the comments if you hear the similarities between "7 rings" and "Mine".

Maria Sharapova refuses to let Australian Open exit dent Slam dreams
I just had to take a deep breath and trust the work that I've done with my team, go up in the spots and whatever happens, happens. That's really important not to be really stressed about it.

"I'ma big @princessnokia fan".

Okayplayer music editor Ivie Ani noted that Nokia's argument seems to be "more about the hair lyric/content than the flow".

Four of Grande's co-ring owners, two of whom are women of color - Njomza, Kaydence, Tayla Parx, and Victoria Monét - are credited as co-writers on the track. Because that sound really familiar to me.

Grande has yet to respond to the controversy.
