New Music: M.I.A. – ’27′ (Amy Winehouse Dedication)

M.I.A. releases the unfinished demo “27” as a tribute to the late Amy Winehouse and all her friends that died at the young age of 27. “i recorded this song B4 vickileekx and never put it out. its a unfinished demo. R.I.P A.M.Y.,” wrote the Sri Lankan star.

Maya tells the story of a troubled friend who abused drugs and alcohol and eventually committed suicide. The somber tune features haunting lyrics such as, “All rock stars go to heaven/ You said you’ll be dead at 27.”

Listen below and read the full lyrics here.

    hated it Reply:

    @Ms.Minaj, how is she a one hit wonder when she doesn’t want to be mainstream anyway??? Paper Planes is not her best song. Some ppl make music for the love of doing so and not to have number ones. At least her music has substance to it, more than I can say for Onika’s fake lying punk ass!!!

    um. i’m sure the lyrics are great… if only i could understand what the hell she was saying. this sounds terrible. she has no talent, she needs to just disappear. just my opinion. it was nice of her to dedicate the song to Amy though.

  20. Yo!

    People can’t even begin to comprehend how much of MIA’s original material is bitten off by commercial artists like Rihanna and Bey. Seriously, youtube her and listen to all her stuff. Just cos she does it in her own way, how she wants to do it i.e. not bubblegum pop crap, she gets overlooked. I’m not a huge MIA fan but props when props are due.

    can someone tell me whether she is a singer or a rapper? Cuz she doesn’t have the vocal talent to sing and her rapping is… I seriously dont know… weird prolly. :S
