Ariana Grande is going to keep making songs about her broken engagement

Ariana Grande dropped a hint yesterday about the title of her new single coming out next week. It’s probably called “7 Rings” and people think it’s going to sample Biggie’s “Gimme The Loot” because she also posted a screenshot from the video for it. (NSFW link to that song, radio edit link). The song is fire, but I’m usually not into Biggie’s music. (I love 90s rap but more like The Pharcyde, Pete Rock, Tribe Called Quest, etc.) Here’s her tweet:

I made the title a little click-baity (don’t judge me!) because “7 Rings” will likely be about how she got over the breakup, not necessarily the breakup itself. She tweeted in early December that she went to Tiffany’s with her girls and bought everyone rings, so she’s probably going to make an earworm song about doing that. I’ll surely love it. I’ve listened to thank u, next so many times.

This is a smart strategy and would be similar to thank u, next in that it’s about her and her reaction, not the event itself. It’s not like she’ll have lyrics about her ex moving on with a hot British cougar, although I would be here for that. I can’t believe it’s already been three months since Ariana and Pete broke up. It doesn’t seem like that long ago (partly because it’s still playing out in the press). That’s also why it’s a bad idea to get engaged and move in together so soon. It’s amazing to meet someone with whom you’re mutually infatuated, but it can backfire when you change your whole life to include them in it immediately. (I’m watching Dirty John now after having listened to the podcast. They put the timeline up on screen, which makes everything seem more ominous. They moved into together after just a few weeks and were married in less than three months.)

Also I forgot she called her mini pig Piggy Smallz! She reminded us with this cute video.

    Taylor Swift made a lot of money doing this!

    She’s the new Taylor Swift I guess. I mean if Taylor can mine a 3 month relationship for multiple songs I guess Ariana can certainly do so with a six month one. One song? Sure. But multiple is a bit much for me. I find it rather boring and exhausting.

  3. Beth says:

    Taylor Swift copycat. When Ariana runs out of songs to write, she’ll date and breakup with someone else to sing about

    Doesn’t she get tired of posing so that left side is photographed?

  5. Some chick says:

    Here for her lavender Christian Siriano poof dress for Billboard!

    She cry for attention and taylor swift already did it. NEXT !

    No doubt she can sing and her songs have catchy beats but her lack of pronounciation still grates on me a times – I often like her songs more when someone else covers them!! But of course she would keep dragging Pete and her relationships out. Let’s not forget that this is a person who licked on a donut in public and dissed America for laughs and for no reason at all!! I think everyone forgets and forgives Arianna’s due to the Manchester incident, but she likely still has the maturity level of a 15 year old.

    The entire history of music is based on story telling and history recording. Let her sing her life. Who fucking cares.
