Second single off M.I.A.‘s Matangi is a dig at today’s YOLO culture, narcissism and aversion to responsibility. Titled ‘Y.A.L.A.’  (You Always Live Again), the beat is heavy with textured samples, thumping bass, syncopated percussion and scathing wit:

“YOLO, I don’t even know anymore / What that even mean though? / If you only live once / Why we keep doing the same shit? / Back home, where I come from / We keep being born / Again and again and again / That’s why they invented karma.”

This song feels like a culmination of new M.I.A. mixed with the old – press play and see how you feel about it. Mica Nantes More M.I.A. M.I.A.’s Bootleg-Inspired Versus Versace Collection Watch: M.I.A – ‘Come Walk With Me’
