New Music: M.I.A. (yet again)

I'm beginning to think that M.I.A. (nee: Mathangi Maya Arulpragasam) is angling to become the Michael Jordan of indie ganna dancehall. With multiple announcements of her looming AARP membership, M.I.A. hasn't exactly been resting on her laurels.

Her ubiquitous single "Paper Planes" leeches up the top-40 chart (and you thought pop radio was only turds n' sugar?) after getting the Apatow treatment in Pineapple Express.

Heck, chica is pullin' herself up by the bootstraps. Somebody page George Will and the National Review editorial board.

A scorecard:
"Tic Toc" featuring Rye Rye
New M.I.A.: "Hit That"
New M.I.A.: Raindance
New Santogold (Feat. M.I.A. and Gorilla Zoe)–"Get It Up"

Oh. You're welcome.
