"7 Rings" (reso graficamente in minuscolo) è il secondo singolo del quinto album in studio di Ariana Grande, Thank U, Next. È stato pubblicato il 18 gennaio 2019 tramite Republic Records.[2]

Ariana ha descritto la canzone come un "inno all'amicizia" che "si evolve" dal singolo precedente "Thank U, Next", mentre abbraccia un nuovo capitolo.[3] Nel testo, Ariana si apre su come la sua rottura con il comico Pete Davidson la portò a una giornata di shopping compulsivo durante la quale comprò sette anelli di amicizia abbinati per lei e le sue amiche.[4][5]

A livello commerciale, la canzone ha debuttato al numero uno in 15 paesi, tra cui gli Stati Uniti, diventando il suo secondo singolo numero uno dopo "Thank U, Next", presente nello stesso album.

Una versione dal vivo della canzone è presente in K Bye For Now (SWT Live), che è stato pubblicato il 23 dicembre 2019.

Panoramica[]

In un'intervista per Billboard, Ariana ha detto: "We needed some retail therapy. You know how when you’re waiting at Tiffany’s they give you lots of champagne? They got us very tipsy, so we bought seven engagement rings, and when I got back to the studio I gave everybody a friendship ring."[6] Dopo quel giorno, Tony Jabaly, che ha venduto gli anelli ad Ariana, ha pubblicato su Instagram una foto con Ariana con la didascalia: "Orgoglioso di aver fatto la vendita dei 7 anelli", in seguito archiviato e modificato in "Oggi è stato un piacere lavorare con Ariana Grande. Una persona così dolce".[7][8]

[Verso 1]
(Yeah)
Breakfast at Tiffany's and bottles of bubbles
Girls with tattoos who like getting in trouble
Lashes and diamonds, ATM machines
Buy myself all of my favorite things (Yee)
Been through some bad shit, I should be a sad bitch
Who woulda thought it'd turn me to a savage?
Rather be tied up with calls and not strings
Write my own checks like I write what I sing, yeah
