M.I.A finally decides to grace us with an album after releasing an iconic ‘bad girls’ track forever ago. Matangi as a whole is exactly what you expect from an M.I.A album, loud noises, catchy hooks, and a lot of cultural influence. That’s not to say it’s bad, its actually quite amazing, maybe not the whole thing, but there are definitely some stand out tracks. Sadly, her ‘Collaboration’ with The Weeknd, isn’t really a collaboration but more of a sampling of one of his songs, but either way, its a pretty huge track. Take a listen above, the whole album is there in a playlist so just press play and enjoy!
As most of you are aware, I am this man’s biggest fan and I will prove you wrong if you try and compete with my statement. He has finally decided to hit the studio after almost 7 years, and now has ever so kindly graced us with what maybe the album to hold us over another 7 years (I seriously hope not).
I’ll save my review for later, after giving it time to settle in, but for now, I highly recommend you stop everything and tune out the world with The 20/20 Experience

Coming off listening to their first buzz single ‘Bugg’n’ I was extremely intrigued with their new style of music. I finally got the chance to listen to their EP ‘TNGHT’, and the only word I can describe it as is amazing. I can’t begin to describe how forward this whole EP is, and how unique these two have managed to be. This whole thing as a whole is heavy, with some hard hitting bass to back it up. I can’t begin to describe how happy I am for this EP, and I seriously will have this on repeat forever!
