Ariana Grande's single "7 rings" from her recently released album, Thank U, Next, created as much controversy as fanfare when it dropped two months ago.
Along with accusations of cultural appropriation, many artists, including 2 Chainz, Soulja Boy and Princess Nokia accused Grande of stealing their flow in the song. Soulja had the strongest response to the singer, calling her a "thief" on Twitter.
2 Chainz, however, looked to his fanbase for advice on how he should react to the controversy.
Evidently, his fans are major fans of Ari because just two weeks later, 2 Chainz was featured on the remix to "7 rings."
Now we know the remix was a launching pad for more Ariana-2 Chainz collaborations. On the Atlanta-based rapper's new LP, Rap or Go to the League, Ari is featured on the ninth track, "Rule the World."
Fans of both artists are loving the song, which was released with the rest of the LP Friday at midnight.

Ari's fans are happy she was able to squash any alleged beef with 2 Chainz.
