M.I.A "Jimmy"

M.I.A's Kala leaked today and I have to say it's a solid album. Though it's all about free these days, I highly suggest you all buy it when it comes out as I plan to do. Say what you will about MIA but she's good for music. I feel that anyone who can bring a new sound and a new angle to the music scene is definitely a great addition to the industry. Stand outs on the album are "Bird Flu" "Boyz" "Down River" and "$20" (can you name the sample?) The worst track, however, is by none other than Tim himself:

M.I.A "Jimmy"

Not only the worst track on the album, "Jimmy" in my opinion is the worst Tim track ever made and has got to be Tim at his laziest. All he did was play the entire sample with MIA's vocals over it i.e. Baby's "Baby You Can Do It" which up to today help the prize for worst (and laziest) Tim track.

Thoughts?

  11. This track is very boring... I like the Bollywood feel, but it's boring nonetheless. I wouldn't call it Tim's worse track, his worse track was the one on "The Big Bang," album. I can't believe Busta accepted that garbage.

  18. bro, this song is not produced by Timbaland. This is only the covered version of an old hindi song.

    ReplyDelete
  19. this is produced by Switch not Timbo

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah, I think she produced this with Switch and not Timbaland. And yes, it is the worst track on the album and everyone seems to love it. It's just a boring disco cover. The original is better.

  22. just want to say that of all the tracks on Kala, "jimmy" is the one that most bloggers and early reviewers have been gushing about. Personally I think it is pretty good, regardless of how lazy the production was. This sounds like a new sound/direction for MIA, I like the concept of "bollywood rave" haha.

  23. Oh my god, she needs to stop trying to actually sing. I hope she doesn't do that on the whole album...at least not with obviously tonal music. And this song/production/everything is awful.
