Sri Lankan rapper M.I.A. released this weekend an alternate version of her A.I.M. track, "A.M.P. (All My People)," giving the world anthem more dense, drum-heavy production in collaboration with producers Switch and Riton. She tweeted out the new fan-demanded music on Sunday with the caption "Don't be a dick and remove it," sharing a video with a gold rotating emblem that reads, "Uniting people since 2003."
M.I.A. released her fifth studio album, A.I.M., in September, amidst announcing more than once her plans to retire from music. Rumors have since swirled that this album could likely be her last, though we hope that's not the case (We still listen to "Paper Planes" at least twice a week). But for now, we'll have to settle for new remixes and revisiting old videos. Listen to "A.M.P." below.
