When M.I.A. took a maternity leave from music, many seemed to forget about her and she’s sounding an alarm to let everyone know she’s back. Over the past few weeks, she’s began a surge to reclaim her spot, tossing a few Motlov’s in Lady Gaga’s direction for jacking her style and now releasing “Born Free.” Back with a bang, the track is punk around the edges with a lyrics that bring the noise. While it takes a spin or two to get with it, it’s good to hear a small riot to shake things up a bit in popular music.
M.I.A.’s slated to drop an album (still untitled at this point) on June 29th.
