"7 Rings" has already earned over USD10 million in revenue according to court documents.
Josh Stone, who performs under the moniker DOT, says in his lawsuit, filed in US District Court in NY, that "highly regarded musicology experts" have concluded that Grande's hit copied his song You Need It, I Got It.
"The lawsuit accuses Brown of raising key components of Stone's tune for Grande's" 7 Rings" Grande's tune involves the repeating line:"I Need ItI Got It. "You Want It, I Got It". After skipping last year's Grammys, Ariana will be performing at the 2020 Grammy Awards.

When 68-year-old Paula Beth James, who has dementia , went missing last week, her family feared the worst, according to CBS 42. James is conscious, talking and being treated at Enloe Medical Center, a spokesperson with the sheriff's office said.
The lawsuit alleges that two forensic musicologists have examined the songs and determined that the rhythm and notes within the song are also similar.
If it were to be stated in a less technical way, the rhythm and note arrangement of both songs - including their lyrics - are identical to each other.
In addition to monetary damages, Stone seeks to bar Grande from performing 7 Rings in the future and deliver up all copies of the song for destruction. However, a jury member found Katy guilty of a stolen riff from Flame, a Christian Rapper who is still trying to make a name for himself.
A source connected to Ariana tells TMZ, "7 Rings" also has the same hook as "The Sound of Music" so Stone's claims are ridiculous. however, it appears Stone's referring to a different part of the song.
