ARIANA GRANDE DENIES STEALING THE SONG ‘7 RINGS’ – (10/29/2020)
Ariana Grande is firing back at a lawsuit accusing her of ripping off one of her biggest hits and throwing a little shade in the process. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, she is asking a New York judge to dismiss the case brought by songwriter Josh Stone. Stone says that Ariana’s “7 Rings” ripped off his 2017 track “You Need It, I Got It.” Grande calls the suit “baseless” and says “the melodies of these two songs are not alleged to be the same, much less substantially similar, nor are any of the musical notes or instrumentation at issue.”
She went on to say that you can’t copyright the shared lyrics of… “I got it” or “want it.” Her lawyer wrote that, “both songs are entirely different musically, lyrically and thematically.” In the lawsuit, Josh Stone said he wrote a song called “You Need It, I Got It” in January 2017 and that it was released two years before she released “7 Rings.”
Stone claimed “7 Rings” stole a ton from his song. He said his hook was “You need it, I got it. You want it, I got it” and Ariana sang, “I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it.”
The songwriter said before Ariana Grande released her song, he had several meetings with music executives, including Tommy Brown, who has worked with Ariana on her past 5 albums. He claims Brown told him he really liked the track, but never heard back from him.
