The Swedish duo Icona Pop who made us say “I don’t care, I love it” at the top of our lungs have a new song hitting the airwaves called “Girlfriend” and the track tips the hat to hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur.

In order to sample Tupac, the power pop duo wrote to Tupac’s mother to ask if they could sample his music.

Aino Jawo said that they emailed Tupac’s mother in a very personal way, explaining that they are huge fans of the late hip-hop singer and that they’d like to sample one of his songs.

After hearing the song, she agreed and thus, we have  “Girlfriend.”
