Killer Trio: M.I.A., Skrillex, and Blaqstarr In New Song “Go Off”

M.I.A shares what she wants, does what she wants!

Mathangi ‘Maya’ Arulpragasam, aka M.I.A ,may be infuriated with her record label, but she is not going to let that keep her from sharing what she wants with her fans, like this song with Skrillex and Blaqqstar, “Go Off.” Just this week, she revealed the lyrics to her new double featured track with an Instagram post:

A few days ago, there was a whole battle via Twitter with the active social networker bashing on her label for many various reasons of issues she had with them including threatening to leak her own album. The artist officially had the chance to announce her project’s title and release, which will be AIM  and dropped on September 9th this fall.


This singular track alone, is the debut to her LP that she had assistance on from both Skrillex and Black Star, and she premiered the composition on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 program today. Fans were excited to say the least, but were immediately disheartened when finding out that this would be her final full-length album. When asked if this is really the case, the young femcee rapper commented:

“Yeah. I think, I think so. I want to go do some other stuff and take some time off but I’m sure I’ll put music out and I’ll make music, but as an album it just sort of came together after ‘Borders.'”

Before the release of “Go Off,” there was clear evidence that the two other artists were going to collaborate with the British/Sri Lankan singer in some way for the album via Instagram posts that she made a while back which you can see below.

It’s unfortunate to hear that the artist had such a rough experience with the past album, but glad to hear that it hadn’t complete turned her off from the music industry as a whole. We need super strong female rappers like her! Keep on spitting, M.I.A!
