One beat. A second beat. Another beat. And then the beat builds to a military fashion storm. Enter chaos. “Born Free”, M.I.A.’s opening single off her album /\/\/\Y/\, is her take on Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power”. She stormed the Late Show with David Letterman with her legion of mini-M.I.A.’s declaring her stance on life and politics. “Yeah I don’t wanna live for tomorrow /I push my life today/I throw this in your face when I see you/ I got something to say/ I throw this sh!t in your face when I see you/ Cause I got something to say”.

/\/\/\Y/\ is out now via Interscope Records
