M.I.A. Heads to Jamaica, Jumps on a Busy Signal Song: “Sound of Siren”


Good look on both sides–[audio-1] Busy Signal has a new mixtape out on which this song is on, Hottt Ed Turf!!!, which is a bit less daggering-y and bit more “bounce bounce,” according to the scholars at the FADER. (When it comes to dancehall, we bow down to the experts.) Pitchfork wonders if it’s really M.I.A. on the hook/sample, but if it’s not, that singer is about to have a lot more problems than just being misidentified on a tracklist. The Major Lazer wolves can find you, impersonators! [Ha, update: We were more right than we knew. It’s a Major Lazer track.]
