Josh Stone, a songwriter, has come out to claim Ariana Grande ripped the 7 Rings lyrics from him as he recorded basically the same song 2 years earlier according to TMZ.
In the lawsuit, he claimed he wrote a song called “You Need It, I Got It” in January 2017 2 years BEFORE Ariana recorded “7 Rings.”
The singer who goes by the name Dot stated that the hook to Ariana’s song is, “I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it.” His hook is, “You need it, I got it. You want it, I got it.”
He also says the 2 songs have identical metrical placement of the paired phrases.
Stone says he had a meeting in 2017 with Tommy Brown, who worked with Ariana on each of her 5 studio albums. Stone says Brown was interested in the song and said he liked it a lot.
Stone wants profits from “7 Rings” and an order from a judge prohibiting “7 Rings” from seeing daylight.
However, according to a source close to Ariana, ‘7 Rings’ also has the same hook as ‘The Sound of Music’ so Stone’s claims are ridiculous, however, it appears Stone is referring to a different part of the song.
