 Mad Cobra—

OLD-SCHOOL deejay Mad Cobra’s gold-selling single, Flex, has been sampled by American girl group Fifth Harmony on their latest single All in My Head (Flex).

The song, second from the quintet’s sophomore album 7/27 (Syco/ Epic Records), is due for release tomorrow. Clifton ‘Specialist’ Dillon, who co-produced Flex with Sly Dunbar, said he gave the group the nod.

“I gave the clearance for the sample to be used and all the necessary paperwork was done,” Dillon told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.

Recorded at producer Donovan Germain’s Penthouse studio in Kingston in 1992, Flex was featured on Mad Cobra’s Hard to Wet, Easy to Dry (Columbia Records).
