In '7 Rings', Ariana Grande sings: "My dolls, stop watching", my neck is flossin / Make big deposits, my shine is poppin' / Do you like my hair? Wow, thanks, I just bought it / I see it, I like it, I want it, I have it [Yeah]. "
While the lyrics in & # 39; Mine & # 39; from Princess Nokia are, "Rock a lot of my styles and then it becomes natural for summer / Hair blows in the Hummer / Throws the fabric, I'm amazing / It's mine, I bought it / It's mine, I bought it."
After listening to the two songs, Princess Nokia asks the fans: "Does that sound familiar to you?" Because that sounds familiar to me, is not that the little song I made about brown women and their hair? White ".
