Ariana Grande sued by hip hop artist who says she stole hit single ‘7 Rings’

Ariana Grande and more than a half-dozen songwriters were sued for copyright infringement on Thursday by a hip hop artist who says the pop star’s 2019 Grammy-nominated single 7 Rings was plagiarized from a song he recorded two years earlier.

Josh Stone, who performs under the moniker DOT, says in his lawsuit, filed in US District Court in New York, that “highly regarded musicology experts” have concluded that Grande’s hit copied his song You Need It, I Got It.
