M.I.A. is enlisting some high-profile help for her final studio album!
On Thursday, the 41-year-old went on Annie Mac‘s BBC Radio 1 show to debut her new song Freedun, featuring Zayn Malik, which will appear on her upcoming record A.I.M.!
The cool collab from the UK artists is bringing us back to the English beauty’s Paper Planes days, with its techno-hip hop sound that’s perfectly complemented by M.I.A.’s raps and the One Direction alum’s haunting vocals.
The momma-of-one gushed about the former boy band member’s contribution to the song, saying:
“I made this song a long time ago and it was always sort of mainstream sounding for me. If I was going to have a collaboration and have someone like Zayn, this was the perfect song. It takes me out of my comfort zone, but it takes him out of his as well.”
Ch-ch-check it out (below)!

It makes sense that M.I.A. is bringing in the big guns for her next project, since she’s said it will be her “last record!” A.I.M. drops on September 9!
