Arguably one of the hottest acts in recent Lollapalooza, M.I.A. has found herself a place in the music industry. The British-Srilankan rapper is up with the release of her second album 'Kala' that has been proceeded by two singles, the new one being 'Jimmy'.
The song was another Switch production that also helmed the first single 'Boyz'. It was based on a track called 'Jimmy Jimmy Aaja' that M.I.A. used to do as a routine when she was a child. "My mum used to hire me out when I was a kid as a party buffer," she recalled. "It was my track that I used to do my routine to. I had a little tape recorder, and a cloak and a cardboard cut out guitar, and that was my joint."
The disco song will be dropped August 13, about a month prior Kala's release on August 23. A music video for 'Jimmy' has been shot and will be premiered worldwide this August.
