MIA Matangi 2012 Albumrar

The album's release was originally set for December 2012 but it was delayed multiple times; in August 2013, M.I.A. threatened to leak the album herself if the label did not finalise a release date. The first single, "Bad Girls", was released nearly two years before the album. "Bring the Noize", "Come Walk with Me", and "Y.A.L.A." were also made available as singles prior to Matangi's release and "Double Bubble Trouble" and "Sexodus" were released subsequently.

M.I.A. announced the title of the album in November 2012, explaining that it related to both the Hindu goddess and her own forename, Mathangi.[38] It was originally scheduled for a December 2012 release, but Interscope Records, the parent company of M.I.A.'s label N.E.E.T. Recordings, postponed it. M.I.A. told the press that she had believed that she had finished the album but that the label had rejected it, saying that it was "too positive".[39] The following month she claimed the album would be released in April to coincide with the Tamil New Year,[40] but this did not occur. In August 2013, M.I.A. threatened to leak the album if Interscope took any longer to negotiate a release date. The label responded by announcing the album's official release date as 5 November.[41] Four days before this date, the album was streamed on YouTube and made available to purchase in some countries.[42][43][44]

Six singles were released from the album, beginning with a new recording of the track "Bad Girls", which had previously appeared on M.I.A.'s 2010 mixtape Vicki Leekx. The track was released as Matangi's lead single on 31 January 2012,[47] accompanied by a music video directed by Romain Gavras, which attracted attention for its apparent focus on laws preventing women in Saudi Arabia from driving.[48][49] On 3 March 2013, M.I.A. released an eight-minute mix of songs from the album as part of Kenzo's autumn/winter 2013 collection at its Paris Fashion Week show.[50] "Bring the Noize" was released as the second single on 18 June 2013,[31][51] followed by "Come Walk with Me" on 3 September,[52][53] and "Y.A.L.A." on 22 October.[54] An animated lyric video was released for "Come Walk With Me", depicting various Hindu deities.[55][56] "Double Bubble Trouble" was released as the album's fifth single on 30 May 2014,[57] and "Sexodus" as the sixth on 25 May 2015.[58]

M.I.A.'s new album, Matangi, was supposed to come out in November of 2012 but got pushed back to Spring of this year? Why? According to an interview with Maya in Australian paper The Gold Coast, her label told her it was "too positive":

We heard 'Come Walk With Me' in demo form in 2012, when M.I.A. released a short video featuring kids with amazing dance talents, but the singer has now unveiled an updated version, different in style from the track we heard last year in April.

Solange: Forget about the 'Beyonce's little sister' label, because Solange is a star of her own making. Ramping up her indie cred this year with appearances at Glastonbury, Pitchfork, Field Day and Primavera - among many others - the dreamy 2012 hit 'Losing You' had an appeal that was retro without being dated. 'Cool' could very well be an understatement.

Alex Locastro: Formerly Kitty Pryde, now apparently going by Alex Locastro, she went viral on the internet a year ago with her song 'Okay Cupid', which featured lazy, self-deprecating rapping over a dreamy beat - and managed to hit No 12 on Rolling Stone's Songs of 2012. Since then, Alex/Kitty has released a number of EPs and is getting better and better - and cooler and cooler - while still half-refusing to take any of this seriously at all.

In 2012, M.I.A performed at the Super Bowl Halftime show where she extended her middle finger to the camera during her performance. The NFL responded by filing a lawsuit against her for millions in damages and demanding a public apology the latter to which she did not comply. The lawsuit was settled privately a couple of years later.

January 2012 saw the release of M.I.A's next hugely popular track, "Bad Girls." It was nominated for the Video of the Year at the MTV Music Awards and at the 55th Grammy Awards. It became one of her most successful singles and charted in several countries. Later that year, she released her autobiography, "M.I.A." M.I.A released her fourth studio album "Matangi" on November 5, 2013. It received mostly positive reviews from music critics and peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard 200.

Personal Life: She met DJ Diplo at the Fabric Club in London in 2003. They were in a relationship for five years. She later said that they had a tumultuous relationship that included emotional abuse from Diplo. M.I.A lived in Brooklyn, New York from 2006 to 2008. She met Benjamin Bronfman in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood where she resided. They became engaged and M.I.A gave birth to their son Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman on February 13, 2009, three days after she performed at the Grammy Awards and just weeks before she was scheduled to perform her nominated song for "Slumdog Millionaire" at the Academy Awards ceremony. She and Bronfman split in February 2012 after six years together.

Back in July, Annie Mac interviewed M.I.A. to announce the official release date for delayed fifth album AIM (formerly called Matahdatah). With the announcement, Maya gave us the bass-heavy single "Go Off" to mask the pain of some bummer news: this is going to be the last M.I.A. album before she goes on hiatus. Just like the album art says, Maya Arulpragasam has been uniting people since 2003, channeling the revolutionary yet radio-ready mantra bands like Public Enemy have championed. And much like Public Enemy in their present day, Maya sees the work to be an all-too-often thankless effort. After the critical and commercial success of Kala (with "Paper Planes" at the helm), it's been one complaint after another despite unquestionable artistic excellence. 2010's Maya upped the noise factor with samples from Suicide and Sleigh Bells, but its technophobic prophecies and takedown of institutional prejudice were seen as too paranoid for the time (spoiler: pretty much all her predictions came true). Maya won fans back with the excellent single "Bad Girls", which saw an official video release in 2012, but a largely publicized law suit by the NFL due to her Super Bowl middle finger put fantastic fourth album Matangi in limbo until the end of 2013. M.I.A. returned with the controversial "Borders" video, where refugees pepper each scene like decorations rather than human beings with faces and families. In a perfect world, where label bigwigs had the propensity to grasp the media criticism that the video beheld, it would have made for an excellent, uncompromising lead up to Matahdatah. But alas, delays paired requests to "fight [her] own battle" and tone down the political message. Months later, here we are with AIM in hand, ready for a listen through Maya's last album before taking some well deserved time off. Despite the countless roadblocks and daily frustrations, with AIM, Maya chooses the high road and gives us a positive and headstrong exit. "Who said it was easy?" she sings on "Survivor" - certainly not anyone who wants to see real and lasting change.

Everyone involved can now rest assured. We'll get a full new M.I.A. album in a few months, and the rapper won't be forced to go the way of Death Grips, who were dropped by Epic in 2012 after the label discovered the rap duo had leaked its own sophomore album.

Matangi a originellement été introduit par M.I.A. lorsque cette dernière posta une photo d'elle-même dans un studio en 2011, sur Twitpic [6]. Ses fans lui ont donné deux idées pour le nom de l'album : A.I.M. ou Matangi [7], ce qui a mené M.I.A. à choisir ce dernier comme titre de l'album. Le premier single, Bad Girls, est produit par Danja et est sorti le 31 janvier 2012 [8]. Le morceau est une version retravaillée d'une chanson issue de la mixtape Vicki Leekx. Il est devenu l'un des singles les plus abouti de la chanteuse à ce jour, atteignant la 43e place des classements anglais et la 104e aux États-Unis. Le 3 mars 2013,elle publia un mix de huit minutes de morceaux de l'album dans le cadre d'un défilé de mode de la marque Kenzo à Paris [9].

Along with working on her fourth album, M.I.A. co-wrote songs for and appeared on Madonna's album MDNA. In February 2012, she performed one of the songs, "Give Me All Your Luvin'," with Madonna and Nicki Minaj at Super Bowl XLVI's halftime show; during the performance, she extended her middle finger at the camera. A month later, the NFL responded by suing her for $1.5 million, claiming that she breached her contract and tarnished the organization's image (the lawsuit was eventually settled in 2014). Around this time, M.I.A. released the single "Bad Girls," a reworked version of a Vicki Leekx song that featured production by Danja. Charting in several countries around the world and earning nominations for Video of the Year at the 55th Grammy Awards and the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, it became one of her most popular songs. Later in the year, M.I.A. signed with Jay-Z's Roc Nation management and published M.I.A. , a book featuring the artwork she created during the Arular, Kala, and /\/\/\Y/\ years as well as essays she wrote. Several other singles, including "Bring the Noize" and "Come Walk with Me," were released before the November 2013 arrival of Matangi. Recorded in locations including New York City, Miami, and Hollywood, the album was named for a Hindu goddess (as well as a variation of M.I.A.'s real first name). Featuring co-production by Sugu, Switch, and Surkin as well as Danja, Matangi emphasized the mix of western hip-hop and eastern musical influences in M.I.A.'s style. In the U.K., the album peaked at number 64; in the U.S., it reached number 23 on the Billboard 200 and topped the Dance/Electronic Albums chart, becoming her third consecutive album to do so. At the end of 2013, M.I.A. left Roc Nation. 350c69d7ab
