Ariana Grande Called Out by Rapper Princess Nokia Over ‘7 Rings’

Ariana Grande and Princes Nokia

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

In a video posted on her Twitter account, Nokia can be seen listening to Ariana Grande’s new single with a quizzical look on her face before asking the question, “does that sound familiar to you?”

She continued, “cause that sound really familiar to me. Oh my god! Ain’t that the lil’ song I made about brown women and their hair? Hmm … sounds about white.”

In the video, Nokia tagged Grande, while listening to “7 Rings” and her own song, “Mine,” from her 1992 mixtape.

“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,” Nokia, 26, raps in “Mine.”

In “7 Rings,” Grande sings: “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).”

“7 Rings” samples “My Favorite Things” from the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music.

The hook for the song appears to interpolate 2 Chainz’s 2011 tune “Spend It,” and Soulja Boy fans have claimed that Grande’s was stolen from the rapper’s 2010 hit “Pretty Boy Swag.”

Listen to “7 Rings” and judge for yourself.
