Fresh of her first official Mother’s Day and coinciding MILF induction ceremony, the ultra radical M.I.A. has chunked up the deuce to her maternity leave and dropped the first official single off her much-anticipated and still untitled album. Industrial, menacing and ready for club destruction, “XXXO” is 100-plus-proof shot of high-octane musical enslavement, which is nowhere near as original as “Paper Planes,” but has way more potential to blow.
Enjoy it while you still can.
Update: No rest for the weary. M.I.A.’s label, N.E.E.T. Recordings, just released two key updates.
01. The album will be titled ///Y/. Yeah, look @ it closely…I guess. Somewhere, Prince is furiously trying to figure out a way to top it.
02. The release has been pushed back by two weeks to July 13th, 2010.
