EXCLUSIVE: Listen to M.I.A’s “Matangi Mix for Kenzo”

As M.I.A polishes up her fourth studio album ‘Matangi‘, the Paper Planes rapper has released an 8-minute long teaser of her upcoming new material.

The “Matangi Mix” was made for fashion designer Kenzo’s Paris show, and comes just 6 weeks before M.I.A’s full-length album of the same name drops. The mix features heavy tribal influences and clear references to the Sri Lankan star’s heritage – whose vocals are not heard until 5 minutes in.

Despite M.I.A keeping details to the minimum, ‘N***as In Paris‘-producer Hit-Boy claimed to have created “seven incredible records” with the star for the upcoming album when he spoke about their collaborations at last month’s Grammy Awards.

Listen to the mixtape below…

Matangi‘ is due out April 15.
