Ariana Grande's new single 7 Rings has broken the record for most plays in 24 hours on the music platform Spotify. A whopping 14.96 million plays, to be precise.

In less than a year, pop superstar Ariana has released five worldwide smash singles from two albums, Sweetener and Thank U, Next.

7 Rings follows her hugely successful single Thank U, Next which was about her ex-boyfriends.

Here are seven things you need to know about 7 Rings...

1) Friendship

It's the second single from her new album Thank U, Next and according to Ariana, 7 Rings is all about celebrating friendship.

"Seven rings is just like.....a flex. Friendship anthem. How the homies WANT u to feel. What the 'thank u next' energy evolves into while embracing a new chapter."

2) Money

The song itself borrows from The Sound of Music's 'My Favourite Things' melodically in the verses and is as much about how much money Ariana has as it is about friendship.

3) Hidden info

Ariana teased the single in her music video for Thank U, Next where you can spot the title '7 Rings' on the number plate of the car she's driving.

4) The rings

7 Rings is reportedly based on a shopping trip Ariana had with six of her friends, where they went to a jewellery store called Tiffany's and she bought each of them a friendship ring.

5) The number 7

The music video features Ariana living luxuriously and hanging with her girls. In it, fans have spotted the number seven hidden all over the place, including on a post box.
