11:40 AM PT -- Ariana's single, "7 Rings," has apparently broken a streaming numbers record -- the most streamed song on Spotify within the first 24 hours, according to her manager Scooter Braun.
Official numbers are now in- @ArianaGrande's #7Rings now has the Spotify all time record for most streamed song within its first 24 hours with 14,966,544 streams!! 4 million more than the former record holder! History is being made! Congrats to the team & @ArianaGrande bravo!
She still hasn't directly responded to the accusations of ripping off Princess Nokia and other black artists for her new track, but it seems like people are digging the song regardless.
Ariana Grande smiled but had nothing to say about claims she ripped off another artist in the creation of her latest song, "7 Rings."
We got Ariana Friday night in L.A. leaving Rockwell Table and Stage, and had nothing to say about Princess Nokia's claim the lyrics to "7 Rings" are way too similar to her song, "Mine," from her mixtape "1992."
Ariana's lyrics -- “My wrists, stop watchin’, my neck is flossin’ / Make big deposits, my gloss is poppin’ / You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it / I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it."
Nokia's lyrics -- “Rock my many styles then go natural for the summer / Hair blowing in the Hummer / Flip the weave, I am stunner / It’s mine, I bought it / It’s mine, I bought it.”
Ariana perks up a little when we congratulate her on Coachella, waving as she drives away in the night.
