Woo hoo! New music from M.I.A.! It’s been a minute since she took some time off and had a baby but M.I.A. is back in full effect! You can take a listen to her track below – I listened to it once and I’m already hooked and it’s going to be playing on repeat.
This version of the tracks surfaced in December as part of a Vikki Leekz, an M.I.A. mixtape (a play on Wiki Leaks).
The Danja-produced version below – it sounds a bit more polished.
The interweb is abuzz with rumors that M.I.A. may join Madonna on stage during the Super Bowl Half-Time show this Sunday to perform “Give Me All Your Luvin'” a song with Madonna, M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj.
I find it interesting that Santigold and M.I.A. released tracks within weeks of each other. When Santigold first came out lots of people compared her to M.I.A. but I never really got it – I thought Santigold had a very distinct sound that was different from M.I.A’s. I was surprised to see Santigold’s “Big Mouth” – her recent first track/video from her new album where now I feel like comparisons are warranted. Not only did she have a similar sound but the whole look of the video screamed M.I.A. I hope that the comparisons stop there and Santigold finds herself again for the remainder of the album. And, I hope that M.I.A. takes it up a notch and keeps progressing – we shall see pretty soon… M.I.A.’s video for “Bad Girls” directed by Romain Gavras debuts this Friday, February 3. Stay tuned!
