Indie beat freaks all over the world know very well the connection between M.I.A. and Diplo. They were basically the coolest couple of all time in 2007. Their romance resulted in sweet, sweet jungle beats all over the singer/rapper’s sophomore LP Kala, the most famous of which was the unforgettable “Paper Planes.” It shot the two underground darlings into the mainstream forever, and somewhere in that glitzy ether, their relationship ended.
M.I.A and Diplo have mended things over, and apparently even have a new song coming out “this month.” The next single for her forthcoming album AIM will be “Bird Song,” produced by Diplo. The track will be out August 12. Finally, it seems the two have gotten over it and are putting their wonderful musical minds together again. Just look at this tweet from M.I.A.
