Over a year after it’s release, Ariana Grande is still being accused of stealing on her hit record ‘7 Rings.’
When the record was first released in Jan. 2019, several artists, including Soulja Boy, 2 Chainz, and Princess Nokia came forward accusing Grande of copying their work.
Now just a year later, Grande is in trouble with the No. 1 record again.
TMZ has obtained documents from a lawsuit made by Josh Stone against Grande, for stealing a record he wrote two years prior titled ‘You Need It, I Got It.’
In the lawsuit Stone, who professionally goes by Dot, insists that Grande’s ‘I want it, I got it’ hook is identical to his ‘You need it, you got it’ lyrics from his record.
Stone claims he has gone to meetings with big music industry execs as well as producers.
Stone even met with the publishing company for ‘7 Rings’ Universal Music Group.
Stone also reveals that he met with Tommy Brown (who has worked on each Grande album) in 2017 and played him the record and that he “liked it a lot.”
According to TMZ, Stone claims that between the two records, there are similarities between the metrical placement of the paired phrases.
However, TMZ reports that a source close to Grande refuted the claims being made by Stone, saying that ‘7 Rings’ also sounds like ‘The Sound of Music.’
