NEW MUSIC: M.I.A – Freedun [Ft. Zayn]

This might be one of my favorite collaborations of the year. M.I.A is bringing out the big guns for what may be her last album, this time with a track titled “Freedun” featuring the incredible Zayn.

This track might be her most mainstream track off the album. Zayn adds his trademark haunting falsetto which gives this track a more soothing feel. M.I.A has always been known for some hard hitting tracks but this gives her a different side.

 

Head over to The Fader to hear this track!

NEW MUSIC: M.I.A – Bird Song (Diplo Remix)

M.I.A is pulling out all the stops for, what may be, her last album. She has given us the banger, “Go Off“, and now she tones it down with a Diplo Remix of the track,”Bird Song”.

Earlier this month, she released the Blaqstarr remix to this track, and now we have Diplo giving us his take on the kazoo filled track. If you didn’t know M.I.A and Diplo haven’t had the best track record with each other, but I’m glad they were able to settle their differences because I believe it is a pair that can’t be matched.

Take a listen to the Diplo remix below, and after the jump is the Blaqstarr remix!

NEW VIDEO: Snakehips – Cruel [Ft. Zayn]

This track has been a slow and steady banger for me. I really wasn’t a fan for quite some time, seeing as Zayn‘s album was pretty much a flop. The talented producer, Snakehips,┬áhas given some life back into his career for me at least. My only problem was that his album was just one blend of a track, there was no story, there was no differences. This gives him some change up in his sound, and I quite actually prefer this.

In other news, MIA has announced a collaboration with him, which I believe could be quite iconic when the time comes seeing as it is her last album. Anyway, enjoy the video for the Snakehips and Zayn collaboration!
