What Ariana Grande wants, she gets. You like her hair? Gee, thanks! She just bought it…
With “thank u, next” finally loosing some steam on the Billboard Hot 100, Ariana Grande is officially ready to move forward with her next single off her upcoming fifth studio album: “7 Rings“
Crafted alongside the same team behind her first #1 single “thank u, next” – Social House and TBHits – “7 Rings” finds Ariana at her most unapologetic yet as she confidently boasts about her money, talent and independence.
“Lashes and diamonds, ATM machines/ Buy myself all of my favorite things/ Been threw some bad shit/ I should be a sad bitch,” she cheekily purrs in the song’s opening lines, mimicking the melody of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music in the process. “Who would have 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…“
It’s a chill and tripping, #SomethingMoreUrban trap-lite wave for about 2 minutes – but before the song reaches its end, Miss Ariana comes in locked and loaded to give her empowerment anthem the proper finish with a fiery rap verse that objectively slays: “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…“
Does it scream single-worthy? Maybe not. But as a fresh new direction for Miss Ariana Grande, it gets the job done. Ladies, remain empowered – Ariana‘s got your back!
