Live fast, die young M.I.A. does it well! M.I.A.’s latest track “Only 1 U,” which premiered on London NTS online radio show, proves she is on her game.
The sizzling and infectious track is a follow-up to “Bring The Noize,” the rapper’s first single off her upcoming album, which dropped in June. In her new tune, “Only 1 U,” M.I.A. comments on the value of cash and bling-bling in the midst of a thumping beat and a relentlessly dinging wrestling match bell. The unconventional “Paper Planes” rapper spits:
“There’s trillions of cash/ And there’s billions of us/ And there’s millions of things that can happen with the stock… But there’s only one you/ And Imma drink to that.”
M.I.A. is raising her glass to anti-capitilist driven mindsets: it’s not about the money, it’s about the people. Preach it, girl!
M.I.A.’s upcoming fourth studio album Mantangi is set for release this fall, but no word yet if this latest track will be on the record. Take a listen to the entrancing sure-to-be hit below:
