Ariana Grande has shared a remix of her current hit single ‘7 Rings,’ which features 2 Chainz adding his own twist with a new verse. “My ideas are priceless/I know I’m the nicest,” the rapper adds to the pop track, which opens with a riff on “My Favorite Things.” He adds, “I knew you would like this/I must be psychic/I’m from the streets, baby, I’m nothin’ like them.” You can hear the new version of the track below.
Grande first unveiled the single last month along with a wild music video directed by Hannah Lux Davis. The song, which will appear on Grande’s Thank U, Next album, is all about empowering yourself with your friends, which Grande confirms with the lines “Wearing a ring but not ’cause I’m no Mrs./Bought matching diamonds for six of my bitches/I’d rather spoil my friends with my riches.”
Grande was previously criticized for the song sounding too much like several other numbers, including Soulja Boy’s ‘Pretty Boy Swag,’ 2 Chainz own 2011 song ‘Spend It’ and Princess Nokia’s ‘Mine.’ She appears to have squashed that beef by joining forces with 2 Chainz for the new remix, writing “made a new friend” on Twitter as she announced the collaboration.
Thank U, Next, Grande’s fifth full-length album, is scheduled for release on 8 February, following last year’s Sweetener. ‘7 Rings’ is the third single from the album after ‘Thank U, Next” and ‘Imagine.’
Last week, ‘7 Rings’ broke the UK record for the number of streams in a week, when ‘7 Rings’ was streamed a UK record-breaking 16.9m times, surpassing Mariah Carey’s 15.3m plays in a week in December 2018 for ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’. As the BBC recently reported, ‘7 Rings’ is also the first single to sell more than 100,000 copies in the UK since the Grenfell Tower charity single, which was released in June 2017.
