M.I.A. – ‘Jimmy’

MIA_Jimmyofficialcover

Waaaaaay back when, this was my introduction to MIA and it remains a really underrated single in her discography. ‘Jimmy’ is an exquisite fusion of Western dance-pop and Bollywood soundtracks. The Bollywood strings and the “Jimmy Aaja” combine so well with the nu-disco beats that it’s a crime that there isn’t more music like this (at least that I know of).
