Following the debut of pop star Ariana Grande’s new song, "7 Rings," many are speculating where the pop singer took her inspiration. The song and music video have an eerie cultural appropriative nature about them.

The three-minute song is a spin on the Rogers and Hammerstein classic “My Favorite Things" in which the 25-year-old brags about riches and celebrates friendship with six of her b***hes. It also features the singer rapping on the hook with a somewhat noticeable flow. Rapper Princess Nokia was quick to point out whose flow the pop singer's is reminiscent of -- hers. 

In an Instagram post, Nokia plays both her song “Mine,” an anthem praising Black and brown women’s hair, and Grande’s “7 Rings.” 

“Does that sound familiar to you? ‘Cause that sound really familiar to me,” she said. “Ain’t that the lil song I made about brown women and their hair? Hmmm... sounds about white.”

The fast-paced flows are indeed similar. More importantly, the song does include a line referencing weave and wigs, as does Nokia's.

“You like my hair? Gee thanks! Just bought it," Grande raps. 

Following the "Tomboy" rapper's assertion, social media went into a frenzy.

Many chastised Grande for stealing from women of color. Others claimed both Nokia and the songstress got their flow from Soulja Boy’s “Pretty Boy Swag.” Some also compared the chorus to the 2 Chainz (then Tity Boi) song “Spend It.” Folks also called out Princess Nokia for allegedly stealing from singer Kali Uchis.
