Recent SPIN profile subject embraces her bad reputation

M.I.A.

M.I.A. isn't one to shy away from trouble. She's still embroiled in a legal battle with the NFL over a finger, she had no problem telling Stephen Colbert she doesn't watch his show, her new album Matangi is as dazzling as it is infuriating, and, as Maya Arulpragasm herself told SPIN, trouble has been finding her since she was a child. With all that in mind, the title of M.I.A.'s freshly shared Matangi bonus cut "Trouble Again" could come across as a nonchalant shrug. Instead, the revision of the album's "Double Bubble Trouble" is a bass-wobbling slow-groover featuring warped vocals and our hostess' own menacing chant — "Cos I've got a reputation / Got a, got a reputation." Hit play on that B-side below via Spotify, and peruse SPIN's Best Albums of 2013 while you listen..
