M.I.A.’s new album features Zayn Malik

‘A.I.M.’ is set to drop on September 9th.
M.I.A.’s new album ‘A.I.M.’ was already blessed on the ‘collab’ front, featuring hook ups with Skrillex and Diplo. Now another one has been revealed – Zayn Malik.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, M.I.A. has revealed the former 1D man appears on a track titled ‘Freedun’, explaining “we’ve just been going back and forth on, you know, WhatsApp.”

“We have the same publishers,” she contines, “and they wanted me to demo some songs for Zayn. Before I started writing properly my own stuff, I was thinking maybe I’ll write for other people instead. I really wanted to write a song for Zayn….We had a couple people in common. And that’s how it came about. I didn’t really approach him for my own record until later on. First, I thought I wanted to try writing a song for him.”

M.I.A.’s ‘A.I.M.’ is set to drop on September 9th.
