Ariana Grande Apologized For Reposting A Fan Who Said Her '7 Rings' Lyric About Buying Hair Is 'Gonna Solve Racism'

Ariana Grande has indirectly addressed the backlash surrounding her newest song "7 Rings," which sparked many discussions about cultural appropriation.

Since its release on Friday, some listeners have accused Grande of stealing aspects of the hip-hop infused track from black artists.

Soulja Boy, who recently claimed he is responsible for all successful modern rappers, called Grande a "thief" on Twitter.

Some have compared Grande's flow on "7 Rings" to Soulja Boy's 2010 song "Pretty Boy Swag." In particular, many critics have focused on the lyric, "You like my hair?

Gee thanks, just bought it," claiming it whitewashes the politics surrounding hair in black communities.

Some fans have pointed out that Grande has spent years making her hair — in particular, her extra-long and extra-high ponytail, which is largely thanks to extensions— an essential part of her image.
