Jack Harlow got the seal of approval from Dua Lipa before he dropped his new song named after her.
According to the rap star, he got the seal of approval from the ‘Levitating’ songstress before it dropped.
Jack released his new album ‘Come Home The Kids Miss You’ on Friday, and revealed he got Dua’s blessing way beforehand so that she wasn’t ‘creeped out’ by the song.
Joining The Breakfast Club podcast, the ‘First Class’ rapper said: “I wanted to get her blessing, so I FaceTimed her and played it for her because I didn’t want her to be blindsided by that or feel like creeped out or anything.”
He went on: “If she had said, ‘Yo, I hate it. I don’t want it to come out,’ it wouldn’t have come out.”
But what exactly was her reaction? We’re all wondering, too!
The ‘What’s Poppin’ star explained: “She was like, ‘Oh, I mean it’s not my song. I suppose it’s OK.’
“She was just kinda thrown off and she just kinda let it go.”
The ‘Future Nostalgia’ singer is yet to publicly acknowledge the track, however Jack went on to say that they have spoken since playing her the bop and that their conversations are ‘less awkward’ now.
“We’re good. We’ll see how the record does,” Jack added, “I think when the song comes out, she’ll grow to appreciate it even more.”
Jack appears to get confessional in the track where he shares his admiration for the star, so maybe one day we’ll get to hear a collab between the two hitmakers?
