It’s a new day…
I’m starting off the week with music from my two favorite acronyms: M.I.A. and N.E.R.D.
N.E.R.D.’s new track “Hot ‘N Fun” is packed with Prince-esque funk. The song features Nelly Furtado, but it sounds like a follow-up to No Doubt’s “Hella Good,” also produced by the Neptunes. The band’s upcoming album, Nothing, is due out in June.
M.I.A. is back with a punk rock one-two punch, “Born Free.” She has spoken out against the Sri Lankan government. She clearly has something to say, and “Born Free” reflects that energy. It is the lead track to her upcoming album, which will also be released in June. Punk rocks!
