Ariana Grande stirs up controversies with her 2019 hit single “7 Rings” once again, complex reports.
A songwriter named Josh Stone has claimed that Grande ripped off his lyrics and melody on “7 Rings,” an earlier report by TMZ reveals.
Stone has alleged in a new lawsuit that he wrote a song titled “You Need It, I Got It” in January 2017, two years before Grande recorded her song.
Stone stated in his suit that the hook in Grande’s song, “I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it” is very similar to his hook, “You need it, I got it. You want it, I got it.” He also says both songs have identical metrical placement of the paired phrases.
Stone says he met with music industry executives and producers, including ones from Universal Music Group, which published “7 Rings.” According to the songwriter, he also took a meeting with Tommy Brown in 2017.
Stone says that Brown liked Stone’s song. Stone wants profits from “7 Rings” and an order from a judge banning the track from “seeing daylight,” TMZ reports.
This is not the first time “7 Rings” has been met with controversy since it dropped in 2019. Artistes like Soulja Boy, Princess Nokia and 2Chains all have their music tied to Ariana’s “7 Rings”
