Timbaland + M.I.A. = Meh

    (Via: Discobelle.net)
    So here it is: the long-lost outtake from Timbo’s upcoming Shock Value, the collaboration that would make M.I.A. a massive superstar and make bloggers everywhere hyperventilate with excitement.
    All we can say is, well, this is the kind of record that gets cut from albums. The beat has some potential, but after a few loops you get the idea and not much changes from there on out save a little breakdown that serves as a nice siesta. M.I.A. does her thing, spitting some lyrics while mixing in some repetitive yet catchy gibberish, but it’s certainly not the kind of thing that sends 13-year-old girls rushing to Sam Goody.
    It’s not offensive or anything; it’s just not that great, either. Although given some of the poo that did make Shock Value’s final cut it seems like this could have found a home somewhere on there.
