Sali – “Toldya” (Feat. Sampling M.I.A.)

UPDATE: As our commenters pointed out, M.I.A.’s vocal is a sample from “M.I.A.,” a bonus track on Arular. GoldiLocks says so too. The Voice mentioned that Sali has since retracted all the mentions of a collaboration on his site, and offered this: “”SALI would like to clarify that the song ‘TOLDYA’ is not a ‘collaboration’ with MIA as has been misquoted in the press. It features her vocals sampled from a previous recording.”

Sali just posted their collaboration with M.I.A., a juicy, sample-filled track called “Toldya.” It figures the collective’s singer Sali singing about government conspiracies, a topic dear to M.I.A.’s heart. M.I.A.’s short guest verse includes some pithy advice, but the most interesting thing is how high and playful her voice sounds. The song was co-written and produced for Sali by London’s GoldiLocks. Says GoldiLocks: “He’s a proper cool dude with great lyrics about how the government are trying to fuck you over and the genocide in Sri Lanka and just generally things that people should know about. See what u think!” Hear what you think:
