The hook on Lil Nas X's "Panini" was drawn from Nirvana's "In Bloom," and the rapper chatted with SiriusXM about the accidental sample and how Kurt Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean, approved it.
“I put out the snippet [of ‘Panini’] and everyone was like, ‘Wow, he’s sampling Nirvana.’ I was like, ‘Where? I’m not sampling Nirvana, this beat doesn’t have Nirvana in it.’ Then, I listened to ‘In Bloom’ in full, and I was like, ‘Oh, okay.’”
“I actually heard from Kurt’s daughter," he continued. "She’s the one who pretty much approved the song and she told me how much she loved the video for ‘Old Town Road’ and stuff," before adding that the two now follow each other on Instagram.
