Song of the Day: M.I.A. Feat. Timbaland, "Come Around"

Song of the Day: M.I.A. Feat. Timbaland, "Come Around"

Everyone — from millions of Justin Timberlake fans to the New York Times — is wondering what superstar producer Timbaland will do for his highly anticipated solo album, Timbaland Presents Shock Value, which comes out tomorrow. But potential super-stardom aside, Timbaland still has plenty of production jobs on his plate, including work on the forthcoming album by London-based Sri Lankan rapper M.I.A.

On the one hand, I'm glad Tim is working with M.I.A., because I think she deserves to be way more famous, and Timbaland might be able to help her get there. Plus, his use of tablas and other exotic instruments jives well with her sound. But I'm dismayed that this track feels flat compared to the killer beats on her debut album, Arular. Listen up and tell me what you think after you

Thanks to Distortion Disco for posting the track.

I love this song, as well as the whole album. This song is at the end, and telling everyone to come around and calm down thus the laid back ultra cool beat tempo. M.I.A is bangin, she's hot and Tim is cold as ice. The whole album is a wonderful glimpse into the high speed pace of global youth. USA artists wlill have to work really hard and TRAVEL to try to get on her level
