The latest leak from M.I.A.’s imminent/\/\/\Y/\ album is “Teqkilla,” produced by Rusko, MIA, Switch and John Hill. In the juicy track she mentions many alcohol brands: Johnny Walker, Jack Daniels, Captain Morgan, etc., over childlike chanting and the sounds of ice tincking in glass. Of those brands, one has a special significance: “When I met Seagrams / Sent Chivas down my spine.” Note Chivas is owned by Seagrams, the beverage company her fiance Benjamin Brewer’s family purchased last century. She also mentions Sparks, once the official open-bar threat of Brooklyn.
/\/\/\Y/\ is out 7/13.
