“You’re gonna enjoy the s**t out of this vibe…”
Last year, International Recording Artist/Producer M.I.A. announced the release of her 5th Album, AIM. One surprise on that Album was a collaboration with Dancehall Artist Dexta Daps called “Foreign Friend“. Earlier this year, M.I.A. previewed a second track with the Singjay during a livestream, and today we have it! Titled “Load ‘Em“, Dexta delivers his signature sound to get the party started over a production that sounds like a blend of Jamaican and Indian influences while M.I.A. chants at different points of the song. A song to build a vibe with and reel in a few of your friends to dance to. Get your dance crews ready for this one. Weh mi Rum deh? Check out the track below.

They say when it comes to good friendships, distance can never ruin it. Today, Recording Artist/Producer M.I.A. recruits Dancehall Artist Dexta Daps for “Foreign Friend“! A single that promotes being a best friend in every way, this is indeed a dope meeting of lyrics and vocals from two very creative Individuals. M.I.A., who has been no stranger to Jamaica, revealed that during her recent trip to the Island, she heard Dexta on the radio and was inspired and encouraged to collaborate with him. A fan of his single, “Morning Love“, this drew an even greater interest in making music together. Dexta, who is known for his powerful deliveries and strong lyrics, was a perfect match for the single as he kicked off with “Imma treat yuh like mi best friend…“. Go best friend, go best friend! Off M.I.A.’s upcoming A.I.M. album, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
