M.I.A premiered a new version of March’s “Foreign Friend”, ahead of this Friday’s release A.I.M, which was originally shared with “MIA OLA”. “Foreign Friend” features Jamaican dancehall singer, Dexta Daps. The music takes from the dancehall theme and mixes it was a smooth R&B sound, and features lyrics about best friends, something that she talks about on Zane Lowe’s Beats One radio show.
She talks about how it stemmed from her experiences in the Caribbean while banned from Sri Lanka. You can hear it with a brief chat clip here.
