Rich Girl Ariana Grande Drops '7 Rings', A Capitalist Anthem
Remember when Britney Spears ended unemployment with "Work Bitch"? Well, Ari is here to end rich-shaming!
At 4pm this arvo, she dropped "7 Rings", the official second single from her as-yet-untitled follow up album to Sweetener, and it's a... uh... Sound of Music thotty anthem about the benefits of having a f**kload of money? In a good way??
Basically, the song is about having money, being a savage, having friends, and not giving any f**ks. It's kind of like "Independent Women, Part 3" (The first two parts being by Destiny's Child, duh).
Lyrics include: "I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it / I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it", as well as:
"Whoever said money can't solve your problems / must not've had enough money to solve 'em."
The song was inspired by a trip Ari took to Tiffany's with six of her friends shortly after her break up from Pete Davidson, where they got tipsy on champagne and Ari ended up buying them all diamond rings.
This is featured throughout, most prominently in the following lyric:
"Wearing a ring but ain't gon' be no Mrs / Buy matching diamonds for six of my bitches / I'd rather spoil all my friends with my riches."
Needless to say, the Arianators are struggling to find the oxygen to breathe.
Still, no one is a bigger fan than Joan Grande, Ari's mum:
