M.I.A. – Only 1 U

A new M.I.A. track seems to have surfaced in a freshly uploaded NTS live mix.


Words by: Aimee Cliff

The NTS set embedded below has caused a stir this afternoon with the news that it appears to contain a brand new M.I.A. track called Only 1 U. There’s no confirmation that it will appear on the rapper’s upcoming fourth album ‘Matangi’, but like the recent single Bring The Noize it’s characterised by choppy, electric beats and a strident refrain (“there’s only one you”). Stream it below at the two minute mark, following Airhead’s Pyramid Lake.
