THIS IS EFFING HAWT!!! I have been waiting since September to post this incredible song. I heard it for the first time when I saw Rye Rye open for M.I.A at Terminal 5. I wasn’t even paying attention until I heard this song and instantly fell in love with her music. You can’t even listen to this and get the full effect without watching the dancing that goes with it – it’s AMAZING. Rye Rye has got such a fresh, new feel and this sampling (of my favorite song) is just epic. She goes IN and in HARD over a “Party in the USA” remix. Make sure you pump up your bass and listen to this on repeat for the next week, as I will be doing. We can be like best friends. You betta pick this one up off iTunes. Seriously. Best song ever. I LOVE THIS. I’m going to stop before I start ranting/drooling (what psychologists calls the “Party In The USA effect”). I hope I’m the first blogger to post this, just for bragging rights.

P.S. I want to interview Rye Rye – let’s start a petition to get Rye Rye on Jillboard. Comment below as a signee. Yes mom, you can sign too. Only once please..

Take “Sunshine” home.

New music from Rye Rye. Rye Rye is M.I.A.’s new artist on her label who she took under her wing and taught her the ways. M.I.A. is one of my favorite artists today, I love her originality, style, and attitude, and you can feel the same traits in Rye Rye’s music/personality. Love this video, it has this great raw energy, which makes sense being that the song is called “Sunshine”. I believe that Rye Rye is going to be the shet soon, so get on board now. NOW. She is unbelievable in concert. I didn’t even know her at the time and the girl had me dancing my lil tushy off.

M.I.A. Concert Review – 9.27.10

“Steppin’ Up”

“Boyz”

I went to the M.I.A. concert at NYC’s Terminal 5 two nights ago, and it was unbelievable. It was one of the most wild shows I’ve seen. In a more intimate, clubby setting, I had to be one of 3 people that was not on acid. One guy was facing the opposite direction from the stage, swaying with his eyes closed the entire show. The crowd was wild, but M.I.A. was wilder. There were some technical problems and the show started about 1 1/2 hours late which was extremely disappointing, although she really put on a great show. M.I.A. knows exactly what she’s doing, she’s an AMAZING performer. There were times where she just stood still and stared at the audience, who was jumping crazily, and it was still exciting. During “Born Free” (the song with the ginger genocide music video), shet got wild. She crowd-surfed, threw her mic into the crowd, and walked off stage. Everyone was pretty confused, as she kept us waiting for a few minutes before she returned… with a handle of vodka. All I can say is – Coolest. Mom. Ever. The bass was incredible, the heartfelt kind (not mushy heartfelt, literally felt in your heart). It was almost shockingly loud, the best kind of loud. M.I.A. DJed, rapped, sang, screamed, had fans sing, connected with the crowd, and wore an awesome shirt that said “F**k Google, Ask Me”. The graphics/lights were extremely stimulating as was the dancing, beats, and energy of the show.

Her opening act, Rye Rye, an artist signed to her label, revved the crowd up with an INCREDIBLE opening set. Having never heard of her before, I was completely blown away, staring in amazement. As if I wasn’t completely enthralled in her African style dancing mixed with electronic hip-hop beats, she closed with a “Party In The USA” sampling. SHET. GOT. WILD. All around amazing show – Rye Rye and M.I.A. are truly amazing artists and I can not stop listening to their music.

M.I.A.’s unique sound never ceases to amaze me, and to hear it live and loud was beyond fantastic. I admire her creativity/individuality/new wave sounds soooo much. She has to be one of the most innovative artists out there. You know you’re good when you make experimental music that people still consider to be pop. Even when I didn’t recognize the song, it was impossible to not dance. She closed with “Paper Planes”, which I actually missed because I left 10 minutes early to catch my bus back to school. Stupid college. You ruin everything.

Above I posted my two favorite songs that she performed. If you’re not into M.I.A. (yet), I recommend you download those two songs along with “XR2” and “Space” off her most recent album “MAYA”. Do dat.
