Remember M.I.A.? She released an album this past fall called Matangi that sounds exactly like you'd expect an M.I.A album to sound. Sonically, it's kind of like walking into a weight room that's also hosting a wedding reception -- a scene that doesn't make sense in your head but everything you hear is catchy-as-hell and makes you feel like bench pressing everybody. Speaking of bench pressing, A$AP Ferg is joining her, and he'll provide all the cocaine-fueled-explosion music you'll ever need in your life. Don't believe me? Listen to Trap Lord. It's in stores now.
