M.I.A. ft. Wale - Boyz (RMX)
Well then . . .looks like there's another remix of "Boyz" knockin' around this week. Interestingly enough, it has a direct conection to the Jay-Z version I told you about yesterday.
The difference is, this one with Wale will be the official remix of the song. M.I.A. has finally gotten mainstream attention thanks to "Paper Planes" (you have no idea how 'indie snob" I got once I started hearing it on the radio). Kind of ironic now, considering that she might not be releasing another album. So, with her new-found pop appeal, the label had decided to re-release "Boyz" as a single (it was actually the first single from Kala), and include this remix.
This is the 2nd time that Wale has thrown verses on this track. Elitaste has the full back story on this, the connection to Jay-Z and all the download links.
