Ariana Grande could be in trouble with her hit single, “7 Rings.” TMZ is reporting that the singer is getting sued by a songwriter claiming that he wrote and recorded the same song two years earlier.
In the lawsuit, Josh Stone says he wrote a song called “You Need It, I Got It” in 2017. Stone – whose artist name is “Dot” – notes in his suit, the hook to Grande’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 two songs have identical metrical placement of the paired phrases.
Stone also says that he’s taken meetings from various labels in the past, including Universal Music Group, which published “7 Rings.” Stone claims he had a meeting in 2017 with Tommy Brown, who worked with Grande on each of her 5 studio albums. Stone says Brown was interested in the song.
Stone wants profits from “7 Rings.” Grande’s camp has yet to comment.
