Jay-Z & Justin Timberlake Team Up To Cover Nirvana!?!

Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake are full of surprises these days!

They teamed up to take Timberlake’s music in a whole new direction for Justin’s song, Suit & Tie. Now the two are pairing up for Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail album!

The song J.T. and Jay-Z collaborated on this time is Holy Grail, and it contains some surprising lyrics!

The lyrics were released this morning via Jay-Z’s Google Play app, and showed that they basically took Nirvana’s classic lyrics from the song Smells Like Teen Spirit:

"Here we are now, entertain us/I feel stupid and contagious"

And changed them to the very similar lyrics:

"And we all just / entertainers / and we're stupid / and contagious"

So this obvi begs the question, is someone from Nirvana’s camp throwing a hissy fit??

Well, some Nirvana fans might once the song comes out, but Courtney Love totes gave Jay-Z permission to use the lines! But only after making it very clear that they aren't bestiez by ANY means.

She said the following:

"Jay-Z's huge and we're friends. I mean we're not besties or anything…."

Ok Court, thanks for the clarification!

And if you’re dying to see what the rest of the lyrics look like, you can check them out below!!
