In a video shared on Instagram and Twitter, Nokia played a clip of "7 rings" followed by a snippet of her song "Mine," and remarked on the similarities. "Does that sound familiar to you?" she asks, continuing “Ain’t that the lil song I made about brown women and their hair? Hmmm... sounds about white.”

Nokia also retweeted a post containing further accusations of plagiarism against Grande. [Ariana Grande's] new album literally plagiarizes flows, words, bars from Nokia," the tweet charges.

Nokia isn't even the first person today to claim "7 rings" pulls from another song. A Soulja Boy fan got over 37K likes on Twitter for their claim that Ariana Grande's song "is just [Soulja Boy's] 'pretty boy swag' sped up."

Listen to "Mine" below. Princess Nokia reissued her debut project Metallic Butterfly in December.
