New Music: M.I.A. - 'Y.A.L.A.' [Snippet]
Forget “YOLO.” It’s all about “Y.A.L.A.” (You Always Live Again). M.I.A. introduces a new acronym in response to Drake’s popular catchphrase. Over a heavy-hitting beat, the British rapper lays down some in-your-face rhymes (“I drink some Cointreau, keep it in my poncho”).
“If you only live once why we keep doing the same shit?” she asked.
The song will be available for download on Oct. 22 with the album pre-order.
Matangi arrives Nov. 5 featuring The Weeknd (“Exodus” and “Sexodus”), with production from Surkin, Switch, Danja, and Hit-Boy.
