Singer Ariana Grande recently released her song '7 Rings' from the popular album 'Thank U, Next'. In the song, she raps about having an absurd amount of money and buying Tiffany rings for her BFFs on a whim. A trio of artists, Princess Nokia, 2 Chainz, Soulja Boy, have independently accused Grande of plagiarising their work.

The album is co-produced by Grande with her longtime collaborator Tommy Brown alongside Charles Anderson and Michael Foste. As per a FoxNews report,  earlier this month, Ariana was also accused of stealing lyrics from rapper Princess Nokia. Nokia posted a reaction video on her YouTube channel where she was listening to Ariana’s '7 Rings' before playing her own track ‘Mine.’ She seemed quite amused as she said, “Does that sound familiar to you? Because that sounds really familiar to me."

Rappers Soulja Boy and 2 Chainz have also called out Grande for allegedly copying their work in her latest track '7 Rings'. Soulja has noticed some similarities to his 2010 single ‘Pretty Boy Swag’. He replied to a tweet in which Ariana thanked her friends who were featured in the '7 Rings' video, writing, "Give me my credit. Period."

Soulja Boy had previously accused Drake of stealing lyrics, reports Business Standard.

In addition, 2 Chainz has slyly called out Grande, suggesting on Instagram that the ‘7 Rings’ neon-lit Hannah Lux Davis music video, set in a sorority house, bears a few similarities to his Pink Trap House in Atlanta which is featured in his song 'Door Swangin' .

However, the singer is yet to comment on these accusations.

According to TMZ, shortly after her breakup with Pete Davidson, Ariana reportedly went out with her friends to a jewellery store and bought seven engagement rings for them, which went on to be an inspiration behind the song. The lyrics of '7 Rings' also feature references to her breakups, just like Thank U, Next.
