The True Story Behind Ariana Grande's New Hit, "7 Rings"

The True Story Behind Ariana Grande's New Hit, "7 Rings"

Ariana Grande blessed the world with another bop today with her new single, "7 Rings." Whereas "Thank U, Next" shows the singer promoting self-love and growth post-breakup, her latest release shows her finding comfort in her friendships as a strong, single woman.



In case you questioned how she's holding up after her very public breakup, "7 Rings" is proof that Ari is doing great, if not better, in the company of her girls and her wealth. ("I'd rather spoil all my friends with my riches," she sings in the second verse.)

Even better, it offers a hip-hop spin on "My Favorite Things," the Rogers & Hammerstein classic sung by Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. Grande interpolates the melody in her verses with a saucy attitude.


Below, we break down the key lines behind Ari's latest hit.

In November, following Grande's split from Davidson, fans noticed the singer was wearing a new diamond ring in an Instagram photo, instead of the tear-shaped engagement ring from her ex. Two days later, she shared another picture of herself wearing the ring, with a friend wearing a similar rock. She also posted a video of her and her pals wearing diamonds in a video on her Instagram story.

Read the full lyrics to "7 Rings" below:

Yeah, breakfast at Tiffany's and bottles of bubbles
Girls with tattoos who like getting in trouble
Lashes and diamonds, ATM machines
Buy myself all of my favorite things (Yeah)
Been through some bad shit, I should be a sad bitch
Who woulda thought it'd turn me to a savage?
Rather be tied up with cuffs and not strings
Write my own checks like I write what I sing, yeah (Yeah)
My wrist, stop watchin', my neck is flossin'
Make big deposits, my gloss is poppin'
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (Yeah)
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (Yeah)
Wearing a ring, but ain't gon' be no "Mrs."
Bought matching diamonds for six of my bitches
I'd rather spoil all my friends with my riches
Think retail therapy my new addiction
Whoever said money can't solve your problems
Must not have had enough money to solve 'em
They say, "Which one?" I say, "Nah, I want all of 'em"
Happiness is the same price as red-bottoms
My smile is beamin', my skin is gleamin'
The way it shine, I know you've seen it (You've seen it)
I bought a crib just for the closet
Both his and hers, I want it, I got it, yeah
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it (Baby)
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it (Oh yeah)
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (Yeah)
I got my receipts, be lookin' like phone numbers
If it ain't money, then wrong number
Black card is my business card
The way it be settin' the tone for me
I don't mean to brag, but I be like, "Put it in the bag," yeah
When you see them racks, they stacked up like my ass, yeah
Shoot, go from the store to the booth
Make it all back in one loop, give me the loot
Never mind, I got the juice
Nothing but net when we shoot
Look at my neck, look at my jet
Ain't got enough money to pay me respect
Ain't no budget when I'm on the set
If I like it, then that's what I get, yeah
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it (Yeah)
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it (Oh yeah, yeah)
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it

I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (Yeah)
