New Music: M.I.A. – ‘Y.A.L.A.’

Y.A.L.A

M.I.A. declares “You Always Live Again” on her explosive new single “Y.A.L.A.,” which is a response to Drake’s “YOLO” catchphrase. Over a heavy-hitting beat, the Sri Lankan spitfire drops lyrical bombs (i.e. “I drink some Cointreau, keep it in my poncho”).

“YOLO, I don’t even know anymore, what that even mean though,” says Maya. “If you only live once why we keep doing the same shit? Back home, where I come from, we keep being born again and again and again. That’s why they invented karma.”

Her fourth album Matangi is due Nov. 5 featuring The Weeknd (“Exodus” and “Sexodus”), with production from Surkin, Switch, Danja, and Hit-Boy.

    Could I request that Rap-Up remove this video in favor for a different? Its promoting a site that allows people to download the song for free rather than from iTunes, and the site is a bit trippy if you ask me.
