Published Oct 21, 2013Last week, M.I.A. gave us a sneak peek of her upcoming Matangi via a snippet of its "Y.A.L.A.", but the song has now been leaked in full for all to hear.
As previously hinted in the snippet, "Y.A.L.A." is a pulsating club banger full of screeched synths and star-screaming space sounds, with M.I.A. delivering energetic bars, low-rolling vocal hooks and even a spoken word passage in the outro.
"Y.O.L.O.? I don't even know anymore...what that even mean?" she questions. "If you only live once why we keep doing the same shit?" You can sample the track again and again down below.
Matangi drops November 5 via Interscope.
