Here Is Everything We Know About Ariana Grande’s New Single ‘7 Rings’

Following the immense success of Sweetner, “Thank U, Next,” and “Imagine,” Ariana Grande is ready to drop her next single! Grande announced via social media that her new song “7 Rings” will be released next Friday, January 18. 

As for the actual song, we already know the inspiration behind the next track—a girls trip and a shopping spree. Grande explained on Twitter in December that her and some of her best friends were having a “rough day” in New York City when they decided to go to Tiffany & Co for some therapeutic bling. “We had too much champagne. I bought us all rings,” Grande wrote. “It was very insane and funny. And on the way back to the [studio] Njomza was like, ‘Bitch, this gotta be a song.’ So we wrote it that afternoon.”

But we still don’t know too much about single. Grande has already shared on Thursday the single’s cover art, which features a pink door with the single title spray-painted across in black. 

You’ve also have already heard some of the new track. The music at the beginning of the “Thank U, Next” video features a snippet of  “7 Rings” instrumental, according to Grande.

On Wednesday, the singer reportedly shared on Instagram Stories what may be the lyrics to the upcoming single. But the post was deleted shortly afterwards. These were the lyrics she shared, according to Refinery29

“Buy myself all of me/he he he, tea/ they say ‘which one?’/ i say ‘I want all of ‘em’/ I see it I like it I want it i got it by now/ let me give you some tea/ 7 rings/ 7 rings/ i pop it/ i pierce it/ 7 rings 7 rings/ I call her, I say ‘Hello!’/ one: not right/ two: not quite/three: you’re on track/ four: do not go back!/ five: you’re almost there!/ six: it’s over there!/ seven: that’s right!/ 7 rings, 7 rings.” 

The lyrics tagged her former Victorious co-star Matt Bennett, who also starred in the Bring It On part of the “thank u, next” video, with the words “what have u done.” This led many fans to believe that the lyrics were fake, and that this was actually an inside joke between Bennett and Grande. However, Grande did share some of these alleged lyrics on Twitter back in December, “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it.”

Victoria Monet, who is one of the pop star’s BFFs, shared a screenshot of Biggie’s “Gimme the Loot” on Instagram. Grande also reposted the Monet’s post a few times. Fans on Twitter later began to speculate that this might hint at a Biggie sample in the upcoming song. 

Ariana Grande is currently preparing for her fifth studio album, and she is set to headline Coachella this year. Grande will be the fourth women ever in the history of the festival to headline the popular music festival.
