When I hit play on this track for the first time I really didn’t know what to expect –  I never heard of Yinyues before and M.I.A. has been a questionable artist for me lately, but I decided to give it a try anyway. I was pleasantly surprised with Yinyues’ work on this song, and for him being 18 years old and not even in college I give him props (and to his mother who came up with the creative intro). The song begins with native indian sounds which features sitar, tabla drums and bird-like flutes and then transitions into some string hits over a rhythmic drum beat with M.I.A.’s vocals sampled over it. This is the kind of song I would want to have being played poolside while in Dubai. I definitely recommend keeping your ears open for this dude as there is undoubtedly lots of untapped talent left in him.
