Princess Nokia calls out Ariana Grande over the pop star’s new single "7 rings."
Shortly, after the Trouble singer Ariana Grande dropped her new song "7 rings” post-midnight on Friday, Princess Nokia accused her of copying her lyrics.
The New York City-based rapper Nokia (real name Destiny Nicole Frasqueri) posted a video on Instagram and Twitter of herself listening to snippets of Grande’s new tune and her own “Mine” track from her 1992 mixtape.
After listening to both the songs Nokia comments:
“Does that sound familiar to you? ’Cause that sound really familiar to me. Ain’t that the lil song I made about brown women and their hair? Hmmm... sounds about white.”
Princess Nokia also retweeted a tweet suggesting “[Ariana Grande]’s new album literally plagiarizes flows, words, bars from Nokia.”

The new song follows directly from ‘Thank U, Next’, and is accompanied by a video showcasing Ariana hanging out with a bevy of her closest friends at a lavish party.
The brand new R&B track was heavily inspired by “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music and it speaks to Grande’s strong friendships and the new sense of independence following a difficult year which included the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and her whirlwind failed romance with Pete Davidson.
