Former SPICE GIRL Victoria Beckham will sample George Michael's 1990 track FREEDOM for her next song - after convincing the singer in person.

The THIS GROOVE star, who's married to soccer superstar David Beckham, asked her fellow Brit if he'd mind her using parts of the hit song.

And Michael liked the way she used the sample so much he readily agreed.

An insider says, "George loved the sample and agreed to let her use it. They met for dinner and really hit it off."
