2 Chainz Thinks Ariana Grande Jacked His Pink Trap House Idea for “7 Rings” Video
Add 2 Chainz to the list of people that Ariana Grande seemingly bit off for her new song and video for "7 Rings."
Tity Boi believes the pop star jacked his pink trap house idea for her new visual and went to Instagram to get his fans' thoughts on the matter. "Tryna figure out if I should Big Draco @arianagrande," 2 Chainz wrote on Instagram on Saturday (Jan. 19), along with a clip of the "7 Rings" video, which shows Grande in front of a pink house quite similar to the rapper's pink trap house attraction in Atlanta. "Y’all tell me in the comments! #bigdracovibesall2019"
The Big Drako reference stems from Soulja Boy's recent claims that Grande used elements of his 2009 song "Pretty Boy Swag" for "7 Rings"—something that fans called to his attention.
"Give me my credit. Period," Soulja wrote to Grande on Twitter over the weekend, in response to a post where she thanked several people for the video—none of which included him. "Lol stop stealing my swag. Word."
Princess Nokia also called out the singer over the track, claiming that Grande copied her song "Mine" from her 2016 mixtape, 1992. As XXL recently pointed out, however, "7 Rings" samples "My Favorite Things" from the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music, which would pre-date both songs. However, the hook does seem to interpolate 2 Chainz's 2011 hit "Spend It,” which gives the rapper all the more reason to "Big Drako" her.
