Last year M.I.A. dropped the new album, /\/\ /\Y/\, which lead songwriter Maya Arulpragasem called 'schizophrenic' and Rollingstone called "the most abrasive protest music in recent history." One track on the album, Teqkilla, will get you drunk. M.I.A. takes a shot of tequila and dances. The electro-club beat (produced by Dubstepper RUSKO) drowns out Maya's vocals as she plays word games with titles of different alcohols. The song comes at a perfect time, when dubstep listeners are growing tired and want something new; while youthful revolutions denounce older monarchies in the Middle East and, most importantly, while the national past-time for this country's youth tends to be binge drinking.
The title, teqkilla, is ambiguous in that M.I.A. could refer to tequila or 'to kill her'.
The song is also unique in that Maya's husband is the heir to the Seagrams fortune. Also check out the 'remixed' version that includes an extra verse featuring 'barbie' Nicki Manej.
Check out the video here; I would recommend a listen while under the influence.
