Ariana Grande is being sued by Hip Hop artist DOT for ripping off a part of his song and using it in 7 Rings. As per media reports, the rapper, whose real name is Josh Stone, has claimed that his song You Need I Got It, which was dropped in 2017, was infringed upon by the Thank U Next singer. The suit states that music producer Tommy Brown lifted key elements from Dot’s song.
7 Rings’ chorus repeats the line “I want it / I got it / I want it / I got it,” and on the other hand, DOT’s chorus repeats the lines “You need it / I got it / You Want It / I Got It.” According to the lawsuit, two forensic musicologists have examined the songs and concluded that the rhythm and notes within the song are also similar.
In fact, the report states that every single one of the 39 respective notes of ‘7 Rings’ is identical with the 39 notes of You Need I Got It from a metrical placement perspective. In a statement, DOT’s lawyer stated that the lawsuit has been filed to protect the artist and his work because the song was taken without his consent or knowledge.
