The New York rapper, whose real name is Destiny Frasqueri, has accused the pop starlet of stealing her swag by pointing out similarities between "7 Rings" and her own song "Mine" off her 2017 album 1992 Deluxe.

Frasqueri asks, "Does that sound familiar to you?"

Wearing a ring but not cause I'm no Mrs. Nokia's song mine also features a chorus of "It's mine, I bought it, it's mine, I bought it" while referring to her hair. However, Princess Nokia is convinced that Ariana Grande took her flow for the song.

Adding: 'Hmm. sounds about white'.

In "7 Rings", Grande sings: "My wrist, stop watchin', my neck is flossin' / Make big deposits, my gloss is poppin' / You like my hair?"

Nokia also retweeted a post containing further accusations of plagiarism against Grande.

And despite directly mentioning her Instagram account in the caption, Ariana has yet to respond to Princess Nokia's shady diss.

But now Eevee has shown up in the most unexpected location yet: the arm of singer Ariana Grande. While we can still appreciate the empowering message behind Ariana Grande's "7 Rings", we can and should still recognize every other powerful anthem, past, present, and future.

See more in the video below. "Gee thanks, just bought it". On "7 rings", Grande raps, "You like my hair?/Gee thanks, just bought it", whereas on "Mine", Nokia repeatedly says, "It's mine/I bought it".
