Ariana Grande's chart-topping song, '7 Rings' from 'Thank U, Next', is a play on the classic tune 'Favourite Things' from the Academy Award-winning movie, 'The Sound Of Music'.
'Favourite Things' is about finding joy in small moments and simple objects, and was written by the iconic songwriting duo Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein II in 1959 - then in 2019 Ariana Grande turned the song into a Billboard chart-topping anthem! In respect of Rogers' and Hammerstein's legacy, Grande also signed away 90% of her '7 Rings' royalties!
Our cover of '7 Rings' features percussive fluting and the Contrabass Flute - and a touch of Latin-American and Hip Hop Dance, hope you enjoy! Please don't forget to give the video a thumbs up, leave a comment below and don't forget to subscribe :)
