The meaning behind the lyrics of 7 rings by Ariana Grande is multidimensional. 7 rings is one of the most important anthems that represents feminism for what it truly is. On the other hand, this track exposes the consequences of Ariana’s recent relationship failures in her personal life. The song can be interpreted in any way we like and this song is still a banger. I had to analyse the number of times I’ve played this song and the count was around 1,300 times, i.e. a total of 3,900 minutes which is around 65 hours. The count is still increasing.
[Verse 1, Part I]
The track starts off with Ariana Grande having fun with her friends at her favorite jewellery store, Tiffany, located in New York. From the death of her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, and to her broken engagement with Pete Davidson must have made her emotionally unstable. In an interview with Billboard, Ariana Grande said “We needed some retail therapy.” She was in the shopping spree to make herself feel better.
[Verse 1, Part II]
People can try keeping themselves in Ariana’s shoes. Living a life is hard. Ariana had to go through so much in such a short period of time. She is trying her best to feel unattached to every emotional strings for her mental health. According to her, it’s better for her mental health if she ties herself up with cuffs during sexual practices than to become emotionally available to everything.
After she broke off her engagement, many media outlets wrote horrible stories about her. They were questioning her character in their articles. Ariana literally tells people to stop watching everything she is up to. This part of the song shows her strength. She is rich, beautiful and successful. According to her line “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it”, no one can question her choice of living. She is a strong independent lady and she is not obliged to follow the rules made up by society while neglecting her mental health.
Ariana Grande represents feminism in a strong way here. In the chorus, Ariana says, she should be able to live her life in the way she wants. If her choice of living life isn’t a cup of tea for other people, then they should stop complaining about Ariana Grande.
[Verse 2, Part I]
The singer silenced everyone by her strong defence for herself on the topic pertaining to her broken engagement with Pete Davidson by saying “Wearing a ring, but ain’t gon’ be no Mrs.”. Ariana says she doesn’t need a man to keep herself happy. She would rather spend time with her friends, go on a shopping spree with them and have fun with them than to stay in a toxic relationship.
[Verse 2, Part II]
Her two consecutive relationship failures made her emotionally fragile. Because of her weak mental state, she became addicted to the ‘retail therapy’ to keep herself busy and happy. This shows the consequences one has to face after s/he breaks up from a toxic relationship. She couldn’t deal with herself. Thus, she decided to buy all of her favorite stuff to keep herself occupied.
Ariana Grande represents feminism in a strong way in the second Pre-Chorus of the song as well. The singer is very successful and she can do anything she wants because it is her choice of living a life. She’d rather buy homes for her friends and have fun with them instead of crying over the dead relationships.
[Verse 3, Part I]
Even though her relationships haven’t worked out for her, she is still successful as a strong businesswoman. In this verse, Ariana seems to be focusing all of her energy in her creativity and business. Even though there are highs and lows in a relationship, people shouldn’t forget to uplift their personal lives.
[Verse 3, Part II]
The whole song represents feminism for what it truly is. It is about asking the society for a choice. If they aren’t willing to provide what we want, we have got to take it. People should mind their own businesses than to stalk someone’s life obsessively to talk bad about that person. We as a society should stop complaining about personal lives of the people who are always in the eyes of public and we should focus on our personal lives a little more.
