Singer Ariana Grande has released a version of “7 Rings” featuring rapper 2 Chainz.
The 25-year-old pop superstar dropped the remix of the track after fans of the rapper pointed out that she used the line “Gee thanks, just bought it”, which is similar to 2 Chainz’s “Spend It”.
The “Side to Side” singer was recently forced to apologize for the offense caused by the lyric. She insisted she never intended to offend anyone with her lyrics to the hit record.
According to BangShowbiz, parts of the singer’s latest track was also compared to Soulja Boy’s “Pretty Boy Swag” and Princess Nokia’s “Mine”, with the latter hitting out at Ariana for the likeness in a since-deleted video on social media.
Ariana is set to release her new album “Thank U, Next” on February 8, 2019.
Ariana isn’t afraid to talk about her past relationships after name-checking her exes, including ex-fiance Pete Davidson and late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, on the album’s title track. As well as the singles “Thank U, Next”, “Imagine” and “7 Rings”, the album which is the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Sweetener’ – features the song ‘Needy’, which Ariana previously shared a snippet of on Twitter.

‘Bloodline’ is said to pay homage to the “No Tears Left To Cry” hitmaker’s close family, including mom Joan Grande and her Nonna Marjorie. The record was set to be 13 tracks long, but “Remember”, which was reportedly a tribute to rapper Mac, who tragically passed away in September at the age of 26, didn’t make the cut. The song “In My Head” is said to be about Ariana’s battle with anxiety.
