Ever since I saw the interview of M.I.A. below that was filmed back in 2010, she’s become one of my favorite pop stars. I know I’m late to the M.I.A. party but I guess it took me hearing her talk to pay attention. Homegirl is smart, and pissed. Punk rock.

Anyways, M.I.A. has a new record coming out called Matangi on November 5 through Interscope and here’s a preview of a new song called “Y.A.L.A” which from what I can tell means “You Always Live Again”. You know Drake is gonna cry about her ripping off his “YOLO” (You Only Live Once) but I’d like to inform him that The Strokes beat him to the punch by a few years. Boom! New song is rad FYI.
