After sickening visuals from God Is A Woman and Thank U, Next, Ariana Grande is quickly becoming the new queen of music videos (titles once held by Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga). 7 Rings is not a ditty about a top and his several bottom bitches, but rather about the engagement rings Grande bought her seven best friends.
This time instead of an ethereal art-graphic creative or teen movie references, Grande has opted for slick attention to detail drowning in pink neon: boppin’ around her barbie house in big furs, smashing cocktail glasses and sporting the longest ponytail we’ve ever seen from the pop princess. So if you’re all about a visual, get ready to gag.
The track samples Favourite Things and following on from her ‘break-up anthem’, Grande takes us on the next stage of her journey: living it up and loving life with your best friends – something even us poor people can relate to.
Fave lyric: “Rather be tied up with cuffs and not strings, write my own checks like I write what I sing.” Girrrrl.
