As M.I.A. preps the arrival of her anticipated Roc Nation debut, Matangi, an unreleased William Orbit-produced demo has emerged. Over nostalgic synth-indulgent production, M.I.A. adds that magic touch that only she can provide—put simply, the track is pleasantly irresistible.

Hopefully, we’ll be hearing more collaborations between these two on the new LP. In the meantime, dive into “Baby” below.
