Jack Harlow is a young, American rapper from Kentucky, USA. 

With his new song, he is currently battling off stiff competition like Harry Styles for the UK number one single this week.

So. what is so interesting about the song First Class?

This earworm of a song was sampled from Fergie's smash hit, "Glamorous". But did you also know that "Glamorous" sampled Raheem the Dream's, "If You Ain't Got No Money"? This is why we love music trivia!

Integrating some of the sensational lyrics, but of course adding a modern twist, has made this song so eccentric. 

Sampling is very common in the music industry. It's when an artist uses part of a song, melody or chorus and uses it in a new version.
