M.I.A. Recruits Jay-Z For “XXXO (Remix)”

After the initial release –er leak– of M.I.A.’s new electro single “XXXO,” cold feedback came pouring in from many critics saying the track was too “poppy.” So what did the controversial hitmaker do? She teamed up with someone with a wealth of street cred — Jay-Z. The addition of Hov’s verse makes the “XXXO (Remix)” ‘much more palatable, albeit still bubblegum, and reunited the two since T.I. featured both on 2008’s “Swagga Like Us.

“M.I.A.’s new album “/\/\ /\ Y /\” (cryptic for her real name ‘Maya’) is expected to drop July 13th.
