"Pussy empowerment" has to be the greatest way to describe a musical message ever. Hahaha.. I want to hate "bad girls".. but in the end, with the video included, I just can't.. I want to though, i'm tellin ya.

Default M.I.A's last album

i loved her first one - 'galang' got me right away. such hard beats, and knowing she did them herself on a boss mc-505.

then her second album lost me, i didn't appreciate the laziness of "paper planes" just being a clash sample, wasn't into the "world music" touches either.

then when the third one was coming out, hearing that diplo dissed the tracks he didn't do, saying they "scared" him and that they "sounded like skinny puppy" made me scour the net for leaks. i heard a terrible rip of most of the album and was blown away. i ended up buying 7 tracks off amazon.

i think she got really out there and said/did what she wanted, and the audience sucked in by "paper planes" didn't get it. the violent video for "born free" made a point but also probably shocked and alienated that audience further. but she has my respect for making some great and uncompromising music.

I guess I'll have to give her new album a listen when it comes out. I was a big fan of M.I.A. in my earlier music-listening days, but over time my respect for her has soured a bit. I still like her but it's usually nostalgia that gets her records onto the turntable. Can't say that she hasn't done some stuff I still really like, though.

Not sure if you guys have heard the new track ..well snippet. Im pumped for the new album. Youtube it, you will find it.

M.I.A. - Come With Me

Also this track with Jay-Z . Well its remix but I surprised it went under the radar.. Would of been massive hit if the record company promoted properly. Again youtube it and you will find it.

M.I.A. - XXXO (feat. Jay-Z)

Does anyone know when her new album is due out? Last I heard it was due on April 15th (My birthday ironically) but it seems to have been delayed and I haven't heard about any new release date.
