M.I.A. returns to the public eye today with her much talked about collaboration with William Orbit entitled “Baby.” The sound is pretty much what you'd expect, though M.I.A. certainly sounds more slick than usual. I can’t say I’m really feeling this one, I think both of them do their thing but this reminds me more of the joyless MAYA LP than I would like it too. M.I.A. works best with whimsy and humor of Diplo and Switch where fun is the focus, not bad just not great.
