You Want It, I Got It'. Stone says Brown was interested in the song and said he liked it a lot.

Josh Stone, a hip-hop artist by the name DOT, particularly highlighted the similarities in the chorus of his song and that of Ariana. According to the lawsuit, two forensic musicologists have examined the songs and concluded that the rhythm and notes within the song are also similar. While Stone's tune has the refrain: "You Need It, I Got It".

Josh Stone is suing Ariana Grande for all the profits of the song "7 Rings" alone.

He also says that the 2 songs have identical metric placement of the matched phrases.

"7 Rings" chorus repeats the line "I want it / I got it / I want it / I got it", and on the other hand, DOT's chorus repeats the lines "You need it / I got it / You Want It / I Got It".

A rep for Grande did not immediately return a message.

The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in NY by Stone's lawyer Tamir Young. "Josh's song was taken and used without his consent, without his knowledge and without a license", he said.

"This lawsuit is about protecting artists and their work". It is copyright infringement. "Those laws were violated and Josh has rights that we are now exercising to right that wrong". Grande is set to perform at the Grammy Awards next week, and is up for five awards, including two for "7 Rings".

"7 Rings" lifts its melody heavily from the 1959 song "My Favourite Things" from The Sound Of Music, meaning that 90% of the songwriting royalties already go to the estate of original songwriters Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, according to the New York Times.
