Ariana Grande facing copyright suit over "7 Rings"

Ariana Grande facing copyright suit over

Josh Stone claims in a new trial - obtained by TMZ - that he wrote a song called "You Need It, I Got It" in January 2017 ...

The chorus of Grande's song repeats the line "I want it / I got it / I want it / I got it", while the chorus of DOT's features the refrain "You need it / I got it / You Want It / I Got It".

Ariana Grande was filed a claim against on Thursday by a hip-hop musician that declares she swindled the carolers of his tune for her hit "7 Rings". According to the lawsuit, two forensic musicologists have examined the songs and concluded that the rhythm and notes within the song are also similar. "You defend to maintain it, I got it".

The song has been nominated for two Grammy Awards, including record of the year. The findings are based on a metrical placement perspective. "Said another way, the rhythm and placement of the notes and lyrics are identical". Josh hopes to get a cut of the profits from the singer's song as well as an order from a judge prohibiting "7 Rings" from "seeing daylight" (which seems slightly odd, considering the song already came out last year). He also added that he does not want the song "7 Rings to ever see the light of day".

In accordance with the lawsuit,"7 Rings" has netted over $10 million in earnings. The songstress is vying for five awards, two of which are for "7 Rings".

The suit has named the Universal Music Corp. along with Ariana and several other defendants. It was only past year when Katy Perry was in a similar scenario.

A supply connected to Ariana tells TMZ, "7 Rings" also has the same hook as "The Sound of Song" so Stone's claims are ridiculous ... on the opposite hand, it appears to be like Stone's referring to a particular section of the tune.
