- Ariana Grande released a new song Friday morning called “7 Rings,” along with an accompanying music video.
- The song was inspired by the time Grande had “too much champagne” and spontaneously bought seven diamond rings for herself and six friends.
- Grande called the song “a flex” and a “friendship anthem” on Twitter.
- It leans heavily on braggadocio, with lyrics like, “Who ever said money can’t solve your problems? Must not have had enough money to solve ’em.”
- The video is similarly elaborate, featuring plenty of diamonds and champagne.
- Grande also acknowledges her difficult year, which included the death of Mac Miller and the end of her engagement to Pete Davidson: “Been through some bad s— / I should be a sad bitch / Who woulda thought it’d turn me to a savage.”
