Given the context, the accusation of Grande's copying aligns with broader criticism that she appropriates African American culture/readily presents as black or bi-racial, despite being Italian. The track is a modern spin on My Favorite Things from The Sound of Music soundtrack.

Grande released her fourth album titled Sweetener in August.

7 Rings has also been compared to other hip-hop tracks including Soulja Boy's Pretty Boy Swag, and the rapper is not happy about it.

The song, Grande claims, was written after a lavish day out with friends in which she purchased each of her BFFs a ring at Tiffany's, although a bunch of artists have their own version about the song's origins.

Both the videos featured hot pink trap houses.Using the reference of Big Draco aka Soulja Boy, a rapper who accused Drake of stealing his musical style, MC 2 Chainz posted a clip of Grande's "7 Rings" on his Instagram page and wrote "Tryna figure out if I should Big Draco Ariana Grande". And it shows in her lyrics and visuals directed by Hannah Lux Davis.
