American rapper Jack Harlow has gone viral on TikTok thanks to his new single First Class, which pays homage to Fergie’s 2007 single Glamorous, featured primarily in Grand Theft Auto 5.
Sampling is the bread and butter of the hip-hop genre, but some songs just hit the mood more than others. In the case of rapper Jack Harlow, the artist’s fans on TikTok are ecstatic over his new single First Class, which uses Fergie’s single Glamorous.
Grand Theft Auto 5 players love the connection, and some Harlow fans are taking their passion for the single to the next level.
Jack Harlow fans love “remixed” songs from Grand Theft Auto 5
First Class was teased by Harlow on March 31 via social media, but on TikTok, the clip seriously blew up. With over 38 million views and counting, Harlow’s reveal of Fergie’s Glamorous immediately wowed Grand Theft Auto 5 players: “Non Stop Pop Radio was on fire.”
TikTok commenters were quick to point out the connection to Rockstar Games’ open-world titan, with user @damonwilcoxx saying, “Bro remixed the GTA strip club song.”
Some of Harlow’s fans suggested the rapper reach out to Fergie to let them know about his new music: “Get Fergie on the feature!”
The track itself was released on April 8, but the teaser has taken on a life of its own as TikTok users have effectively started a trend centered around the song’s lyrical content.
Inspired to take his love for the single a step further, TikTok user @FarmerWill_ used his body to show off the spelling of Glamorous, racking up over 1 million views in the process.

Fans are hoping the former Black Eyed Peas singer will address the song, but Fergie hasn’t tweeted since January. However, anything could happen.
