M.I.A. working with Chris Brown, Swizz Beatz on new material
After a "Paper Plane"-sized hit failed to materialize on her latest "MAYA," it looks like M.I.A. is going to tapping into a fount of other previous hitmakers.
Chris Brown, Swizz Beatz, the Cataracs ("Like a G6") and Polow da Don have been hitting the studio lately with the artist, constructing a mixtape that will act as an album, according to Billboard.
Brown was actually in the studio with Polow this past week, as indicated by the latter's Tweet: "IN THE LAB WIT THE GREAT @chrisbrown AND THE INCREDIBLE @_M_I_A_ THANK YOU DEAR LORD!"
No word when new music will emerge.
