Ariana Grande dropped an electric-pink music video for “7 Rings” early this a.m.
The pop star has been teasing her latest single on Instagram all week. It begins with a nostalgia trip: a riff on the classic “My Favourite Things” that Julie Andrews sings in The Sound of Music. Except this time, Grande is singing about diamond rings and breakfast at Tiffany’s. (As you do.)
“It was a… challenging fall day in New York,” Grande told Billboard about her inspo for the song. “Me and my friends went to Tiffany’s together, just because 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. That’s why we have these, and that’s where the song idea came from.”
