Ariana Grande’s latest single was birthed on a drunken day in New York City. The gorgeous and talented singer told Billboard, “It was a… challenging fall day in New York. 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.” The seven rings inspired Grande to create “7 Rings,” which comes along with a new music video.
In the Hannah Lux Davis directed video, Grande flexes her body all over the kitchen as she throws a wild house party. Although there are several scenes filled with jovial partying, it’s hard to keep your eyes off Grande as she performs her own interpolation of the classic tune “My Favorite Things” from the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music.
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 (Yeah)
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 cuffs and not strings
Write my own checks like I write what I sing, yeah
