Nokia's calls of plagiarism have attracted the most attention online, but she's not alone in calling out Grande.

The "Sweetener" star sings, "You like my hair?"

The lyrics of "7 Rings" also feature references to her breakups just like "Thank U, Next".

"You like my hair?"

In addition to her alleged appropriation of rappers' work, Grande also came under fire on Twitter for appropriating black culture.

"However, The Shade Room was quick enough to take a screenshot and post it on their own Instagram account, alongside the caption: "#ArianaGrande has fans upset because they feel she's missing the point of the backlash". Nokia uploaded a now-deleted video of her listening to Grande's track with bemusement before playing "Mine', tagging Grande's handle in the post".

"Hi hi", she wrote.

"For those of you asking about imagine: i would say if "thank u, next" = acceptance... It's never my intention to offend anybody", she wrote.

Grande's new single bested Mariah Carey's Christmas classic All I Want For Christmas Is You, which attracted 10,819,009 Spotify streams on Dec 24 previous year.

On Monday, the 20-year-old singer teased that she'll be dropping her new LP on February 8 - telling a fan on Twitter who asked if it was releasing that day that it sure would be "convenient". In the song, she raps about having an absurd amount of money and buying Tiffany rings for her BFFs on a whim. The singer who has had a pretty hard 2018 with her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller's death, and her split with the SNL star Pete Davidson is now facing some troubles just some days into 2019.

Once Nokia's posts were written about online and circulated, they were deleted.

The R&B pop ballad - which featured the singer showing off her impressive range - touched upon her reflection of what-ifs and if-onlys in regards to her "failed yet important handsome relationships". "'Cause that sound really familiar to me", she said. "Hmmmm... sounds about white", she added.

Retweeting to his 5.3 million followers he told Ariana: "Give me my credit".
