World Premiere! M.I.A & Zayn - "Freedun": Full Audio + Review
Who would have said to little Zayn Malik from the old One Direction days that he would collaborate with M.I.A in the not-so-distant future?
Zayn features on this new M.I.A song called “Freedun” that will appear on the British singer/rapper’s forthcoming fifth studio album “A.I.M” - in stores September 9th.
“Freedun” got world premiered last night as Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record” on her BBC Radio 1 show and it hit digital platforms today, September 2nd.
Co-written by M.I.A, Keisha Hollins and Polow Da Don, who also worked on the production, “Freedun” is a care-free electronic track where M.I.A gets to show a lot of swagger in the verses and Zayn gets really tender and nostalgic in the chorus as he delivers soft, vulnerable vocals.
