Speculation that ‘7 Rings’ is the title of new song was put to rest last month when Ari answered a fan’s burning question on Twitter [via Billboard]. The person had asked her if the instrumental opening in the ‘thank u, next’ video was actually a snippet of a new song that was rumoured to be called ‘7 Rings’.

“Was the instrumental in the beginning really 7 rings? Cause it SLAPS,” the fan asked, to which Grande replied, “Mhmm,” tagging the Twitter handle of producer/songwriter Tommy Brown.

Soon afterwards, Grande said that she had gifted the rings to herself and her six friends “Vic, Courtney, Alexa, Tayla, Njomza and Kaydence.” She then shared the story behind the new song.

“Well …………. ‘twas a pretty rough day in nyc. my friends took me to tiffany’s. we had too much champagne. i bought us all rings. — it was very insane and funny. & on the way back to the stu njomza was like ‘bitch, this gotta be a song lol’. so we wrote it that afternoon,” she tweeted.

Earlier this month, Ari shared the blooper reel and deleted scene from her ‘oos throwback video for ‘thank u, next’.

In one blooper, Kris Jenner offers some advice: “When I was raising Ariana I always told her that if a guy ever fucks with her, she should just say ‘thank U, next’. And if she ever had sex without a condom, she would get Chlamydia… and die!”
