Jay-Z To Use Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” For Upcoming Project

Courtney Love, wife of Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, has given Jay-Z her blessings on HOV using “Smells Like Teen Spirit” for new music.

Love recently told the Huffington Post about the situation:

I’m letting Jay-Z use lyrics – Francis [Kurt Cobain's daughter] would freak [if she knew this.] Jay-Z’s huge and we’re friends,” she told the Huffington Post. “I mean we’re not besties or anything,” she clarified.

They [used it] without asking, which is kind of nervy but the business side has been taken care of so it’s fine.

 

The song could possibly be on Jay-Z’s upcoming album “Magna Carta Holy Grail” which drops July 4th, exclusively to one million Samsung users free of charge. Jay-Z refers to his new venture as #newrules.
