Jack Harlow is getting a taste of the glamorous life.
As he gears up for his new album, the Grammy-nominated rapper is previewing a brand new song that features a familiar sample. Over Fergie’s 2007 hit “Glamorous,” Harlow shares some inspirational words.
“You can do it too, believe it,” he raps before Fergie sings the hook from her chart-topping hit off her 2006 debut album The Dutchess.
Harlow shared a video of himself rapping along to the Fergie-sampled song in the studio. The untitled track could appear on his highly-anticipated album Come Home the Kids Miss You, due May 6.
“My new shit is much more serious,” he told Rolling Stone of the follow-up to his 2020 debut Thats What They All Say. “Right now, my message is letting muh’fu**ers know I love hip-hop, and I’m one of the best in my generation. You can’t do that with nonchalant, like, ‘Eeey, I got the bitches,’ in clever ways over and over again. I got to dig deeper this time.”
Last month, Harlow dropped the album’s lead single “Nail Tech,” and there’s more to come. “It’s probably my least favorite song on the album,” he said.
On Sunday, he will join Lil Nas X to perform their chart-topping hit “Industry Baby” at the Grammys in Las Vegas.

Rick Ross has accomplished a lot in his career, but there’s still one lofty goal he wants to check off his bucket list.
During his appearance on the “Full Send Podcast,” the Maybach Music mogul revealed that he wants to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania two years from now.
“I actually gave myself a challenge… In 2024, I’ma hike to the top of Kilimanjaro,” he announced for the first time.
While he admits that he hasn’t done his research, he’s made a commitment to himself. “Of course not. I’m the boss, I don’t look at nothing,” he said when asked if he’s fully looked into it. “I make my mind up, it’s not really that big.”
He plans to take the next year to prepare mentally and in 2023, he will undergo physical training.
Rozay won’t be alone either when he makes the journey. “Somebody gotta bring the Wingstop,” he joked.
Kilimanjaro is the highest volcano in Africa and the Eastern Hemisphere at over 19,000 feet. Around 30,000 people attempt to climb the mountain annually and there is an average of 10 fatalities per year.
The “Hustlin’” rapper, who released his latest album Richer Than I Ever Been in December, has “a lot more” he wants to accomplish. “When you wanna be great, you wanna be great. It’s really not a ceiling,” he said.
On the anniversary of his death on Thursday (March 31), Lauren London is once again honoring the love of her life. Taking to Instagram, the actress shared a touching tribute to the late great rapper and father of her son.
“Loving You Here There Then Now Forever and After,” London wrote alongside a photo of a smiling Nipsey.
“Long Live The King Ermias Asghedom Hussle Man,” she added, referencing Nipsey’s real name.
She received messages of support from friends including Kehlani, La La, Angie Martinez, T.I., and YG, who commented, “love sis.”
The couple began dating in 2013 after meeting on social media. In 2016, they welcomed their son Kross Ermias, who turned five in August. In honor of his birthday, London shared a new photo of “Baby Hussle,” who bears a striking resemblance to his father.
In a 2020 interview with Jada Pinkett Smith on “Red Table Talk,” London revealed how she’s been coping with her grief since Nipsey was fatally shot outside his Marathon Clothing store on March 31, 2019.
“I don’t always wake up on the enlightened side of the bed and the days that I don’t, I let myself ’cause I’m human,” she said. “I let myself be human and I’m gentle with myself, and I find things that matter and so I try to live with a purpose.”
Fans and friends including The Game also shared tributes to the Crenshaw legend, who would have been 36.
