Ok. Call the doctor everyone. I am obsessed with this new track. M.I.A. is definitely confirming herself as one of the most creative and polyhedral guerrilla artist of the electro-alternative scene nowadays. After the success of her 2013 Matangi EP, her official come-back slowly approaching. And this time the Bad Girl teams up with talented French producer Gener8ion.
The result is The New International Sound Pt.2. a 120% addictive track, a mix of fearsome rhymes wisely placed in a totally danceable and mind wrecking base, empowered with some asian synths that give the track a somewhat majestic aura. I really can’t stop listening to that.
Plus the video is huge! 36.000 Shaolin students performing a massive unexceptionable choreographed routine. And of course the lyrics don’t hide a political indictment against the strict educational and informative Chinese regime (“You can kill my privacy, but you can’t kill that love in me”).
That M.I.A.–Gener8ion collabo is off da chain! Enjoy!
