New Music Tuesday: M.I.A. – Matangi


Miss Maya Arulpragasam’s long awaited new album, Matangi is out! Purchase that shit HERE.

You may or may not have heard of the constant battle M.I.A. had with her record label trying to get this album out. If you haven’t, I’ll give you the short version. Basically in 2012, M.I.A dropped the single, “Bad Girls” with great success. The new album was supposed to drop shortly after the fact, but due to some complications with her record label Interscope, the album was delayed. From what I’ve read, M.I.A. claimed that she submitted the album to Interscope and they said it wasn’t edgy enough… blah blah blah. So here we are, more than a year later and Matangi has finally been released. Phew. I love this woman, and I can only hope that all that wait was worth it.

If you want to sample some of her new work, check out this neat “live-video” she did for the YouTube Video Music Awards this past weekend.

And as always…. Live fast, die young. Bad girls do it well.
