“I Want It, I Got It”: Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” Is the Ultimate Girlboss Bop

Gurl, get that bread!

The hardest working woman in pop music is still on her grind: Ariana Grande just dropped her first single of 2019, “7 Rings,” and it’s a total banger.

The track, set to the beat of the beloved “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music soundtrack, shifts the focus away from Grande’s failed romantic prospects and onto her own financial success.

The 25-year-old pop star sings frankly about making an unreal amount of money, showering her BFFs in luxury gifts, and pampering herself. Because, duh, spoiling your significant other is so 2018. Thank u, next.

Just check out these lyrics:

Wearing a ring, but ain’t gon’ be no “Mrs.”
Buy matching diamonds for six of my bitches
I’d rather spoil all my friends with my riches
Think retail therapy my new addiction
Whoever said money can’t solve your problems?
Must not have had enough money to solve ’em
They say “Which one?” I say “Nah, I want all of ’em”
Happiness is the same price as red-bottoms

I mean, sure, a new pair of Louboutins can’t solve every problem, but a pair of kick-ass pumps and some love from your #GirlGang sure as hell can’t hurt.

Watch the full music video for “7 Rings” below—but beware, it might make you feel a little insecure about the status of your checking account.
