Who else is hyped after watching the video release of Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings?” We’ve been teased for long enough Ari!
Songs “thank u, next” and “Imagine” are still playing on repeat for Grande fans, and may we remind you, Sweetener has been out for only less than six months. At the rate of her success in the past few months, we can’t wait to see how well “7 Rings” will do.
Ari started teasing clips and photos from the “7 Rings” music video early in January. As if her Instagram feed isn’t enough of a tease, Grande released a short video of her jamming to the song in the car on her Instagram Story, exciting fans even more.
The single is about the strong female best friends in her life. Tiffany’s is the inspo behind this single, ladies!
Ari told Billboard in her “Billboard Woman of the Year” interview, “You know how when you’re waiting at Tiffany’s they give you lots of champagne? They got us very tipsy, so we bought seven engagement rings,” she said. “When I got back to the studio I gave everybody a friendship ring.”
The new engagement rings came shortly after her split with former fiancé Pete Davidson in which she returned a $100,000 diamond ring. The six lucky friends include Tayla Parx, Courtney Chipolone, Njomza (who encouraged Grande into writing the song), Alexa Luria, Victoria Monet and Kaydence.
well …………. ‘twas a pretty rough day in nyc. my friends took me to tiffany’s. we had too much champagne. i bought us all rings. 💍 it was very insane and funny. & on the way back to the stu njomza was like ‘bitch, this gotta be a song lol’. so we wrote it that afternoon. https://t.co/CoczmPj1Fo

While “thank u, next” was all about the men in her life, “7 Rings” is us a bop all about girl boss friendships.
Although we still don’t have an official release date for her new album, she gave Billboard some inside scoops of the mood of the new tracks.
“This [album’s] not particularly uplifting,” Grande said. “A lot of it sounds really upbeat, but it’s actually a super sad chapter.”
