According to complaint documents, Ariana Grande is being sued for copyright violation over her smash hit “7 Rings.”

The lawsuit was filed in New York on Thursday by the hip-hop artist Josh Stone who performed under the name DOT. He accused the 26-year-old singer and her songwriting team of plagiarism, alleging that they lifted the hook from his 2017 song “You Need It, I Got It” and applied it for the music of Grande’s 2019 single.

Likeness In Its Beat And Lyrics

Josh Stone alleges in the complaint that “highly respected musicology experts” have discovered the two songs to share similar components, including similarity in its beat and lyrics.

“Every single one of the 39 respective notes of ‘7 Rings’ is the same with the 39 letters of ‘I Got It’ from a metrical placement view,” the lawsuit claims. “Said another way, the rhythm and placement of the notes and lyrics are the same.”

The complaint also alleges the two song’s hooks each contain 12 words, with “7 Rings” — which carries the refrain: “I want it, I got it / I want it, I got it” — sharing nine identical words with the music of Stone’s track.

Stone claims in the complaint that he had initially been pitched “You Need It, I Got It” to Tommy Brown, who served on all five of Grande’s studio albums during a 2017 meeting with Universal Music Group. He also stated that the producer showed interest in a collaboration, but Stone thinks Brown “simply took” his song to Grande and later repackaged it to “7 Rings,” according to the suit.

Made $10 Million In Profit

According to the complaint filed by Stone, “7 Rings” has made over $10 million in profit.

Stone is asking monetary losses, according to his complaint, as well as the elimination of any copies of the song that the defendants noted in the lawsuit may have in their possession.

Tamir Young, an attorney for Stone, said on Thursday that the suit is ‘about protecting artists and their work.’

“Josh’s song was stolen and adopted without his consent, without his consciousness, and without a license. Many people obtained a LOT of money on Josh’s work,” Young said. “And that is wrong. It is a copyright violation. Laws were specifically designed to protect artists like Josh from copyright violation. Those laws were broken, and Josh has rights that we are now using to the right that wrong.”

The song “7 Rings” is currently chosen for multiple Grammy Awards, which includes the record of the year.
