New Music: M.I.A. - 'Matangi Mix for Kenzo'

  /  03.03.2013


M.I.A. brings the noise with her Matangi mix. The project, a collaboration with fashion house Kenzo, serves as a prequel to her upcoming fourth album of the same name. Over an eight-and-a-half-minute track, the Sri Lankan powerhouse cooks up a cacophony of sounds including tribal rhythms, heavy drums, and Hindi chants. Her vocals aren’t heard until five minutes in.

“I’m thankful for my hands ’cause it’s a good thrower/ I’m thankful for my body ’cause it’s a fu**ing banger/ I’m thankful for my mouth ’cause it’s a real screamer/ But most of all, I’m thankful for…my power!” she declares.

M.I.A. has recorded “seven incredible records” for Matangi with Hit-Boy. “She’s really creative,” said the “Ni**as in Paris” producer. “She’s doing exactly what comes to her. That’s why we were able to crank out that many songs.”

Blast off with her sonic explosion.
