New M.I.A. – “Hit That”

Stereogum | May 3, 2007 - 3:12 pm

Maya’s next LP is still a couple of summer months away, but patron saint of Sri Lankan dancehall remains beneficent, offering up another cut from Kala (meaning “black,” if your Tamil could use a touch up). First came “Bird Flu” and the promise that its “BEAT GON KILL EVERYONE!!” This track comes with less death threats but far more Wreckx-N-Effect referencing and a beat fit for sweaty dance-floor come-ons, as per the title’s suggestion. Don’t know if Diplo did “Hit That,” although Diplo did hit that (rimshot).

M.I.A. – “Hit That” (MP3)

Kala is out 8/21 on XL.
