Today, Annie Mac's Hottest Record In The World is M.I.A.'s new release "Freedun." The Sri Lankan songstress is slated to release her album AIM on September 9th. On "Freedun," she relaxes her voice and employs a sing-song style of rapping that brings her British accent to the fore. Zayn arrives briefly for the chorus, and his glossy, atmospheric vocal runs contrast nicely with M.I.A.'s down-to-earth style.
In an interview with Annie Mac following the premiere of "Freedun," M.I.A. explained that she went to the Himalayas to film the music video. "This is like a floaty song, d'you know what I mean?" she said. "I had to put my aggressive brain to bed for this one."
Dinosaurs died and I'm still strong
A little bit of fun, yeah, I don't see the wrong
This song is so good, yeah I waited too long
I rape that button just to play this song
