Ariana Grande is ready to drop her next hit!
On Thursday (January 10), the "thank u, next" singer announced on Instagram the release date of her next single, "7 Rings," captioning a photo of the track's cover art: "💍💍💍💍💍💍💍 1.18."
Ari's announcement came hours after she posted then deleted what appeared to be the lyrics to the highly-anticipated single on her Instagram Story Wednesday (January 9) night. While they weren't up for long, eagle-eyed fans were able to screenshot the post. Check out a few bars of the single's alleged lyrics below:
Buy myself all of me/ he he he, tea/they say ‘which one?’/ i say ‘I want all of ‘em’/ I see it I like it I want it i got it by now/ let me give you some tea/ 7 rings/ 7 rings/ i pop it/ i pierce it/ 7 rings 7 rings/ I call her, I say ‘Hello!’/ one: not right/two: not quite/ three: you’re on track/ four: do not go back!/ five: you’re almost there!/ six: it’s over there!/ seven: that’s right!/ 7 rings, 7 rings.
Back in December, Ari revealed that the song is about friendship, with each ring representing a close friend of hers. "well ............. ‘twas a pretty rough day in nyc. my friends took me to tiffany’s. we had too much champagne. i bought us all rings. 💍," she wrote on Twitter. "it was very insane and funny. & on the way back to the stu njomza was like ‘bitch, this gotta be a song lol’. so we wrote it that afternoon." The 25-year-old singer later tweeted who among her circle was lucky enough to get a ring. "me, vic, courtney, alexa, tayla, njomza, kaydence (and my mom and nonna so technically nine but they got theirs after song was done)," she wrote.
