M.I.A. & Diplo Are Still A Perfect Fit On This "Bird Song" Remix
On September 9th, M.I.A. will release her fifth, and final, studio album, AIM. The months of build-up have revealed brilliant offerings in the Blaqstarr-produced edit of “Bird Song,” the alternate Diplo-helmed remix being the subject of much discussion in recent weeks, as Interscope battled its clearance. But it seems that the matter has been resolved, at least for the time being, as the Diplo edit of the track has been officially released.
Embracing dancehall as the template, the reunion of former lovers is a magical one, giving us a little something to round out these final days of summer; a banger by any system of metrics. You can hear M.I.A. and Diplo prove their still undeniable chemistry down below.
