Gyllene Tider track used in Swedish rap song

The famous intro of Gyllene Tider hit song "Flickorna på TV2" has been used as a sample in a new Swedish rap song by Trippel Ett. The song, entitled simply "Flickorna," is the first single from the band's forthcoming debut album "Svar på tal".

  The sample from "Flickorna på TV2" was used with Per's permission. Trippel Ett didn't contact Per directly, but spoke with his record company.

  "It wasn't a problem to get the permission," says Andreas Nordström of Trippel Ett. "But he wanted to hear the song and know what the lyrics are about, so that we weren't throwing shit on him."

  Per's manager, Marie Dimberg, says laughingly in CNN Sverige's interview that Per is "Halmstad's biggest hip-hopper" and that Per gave the permission because he thought that the song was good.

  The single is already in radio rotation. The retail single will be in the Swedish shops on January 29th. The album will be released in mid-February.
