Following various teases, M.I.A. delivers her brand new track featuring the one and only ZAYN! Freedun (a play on the word Freedom), is set to appear on M.I.A.‘s forthcoming album, A.I.M., due out September 9.
Random collaboration, you may be wondering. Well, not quite. M.I.A. and the former One Directioner know a few people in common and according to M.I.A., before she started narrowing down songs from her album, one of the people she was interested in penning a track for was ZAYN.
M.I.A. does most of the heavy-lifting on the record, with ZAYN echoing his way effortless through its chorus. It is different, in other words, not something you’d hear from either of the artists featured but different isn’t necessarily bad. Actually, this is quite good.
