Remember when Jay-Z released his lyrics to his new song "Heaven" and referenced the words to R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion"? NME reports that R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe has nothing but love for the hip-hop mogul: "I've known Jay for a long time, he's super cool, super grounded, super smart and super talented. I've always had the deepest respect for him, and his music and choices. We're thrilled [for our lyrics] to be included, it's a really great honour". Glad to hear that there's no controversy over Jay borrowing R.E.M.'s lyrics!
