This track is a short, powerful burst of autotune baby, sparse rhythm and Prince Zimboo’s “heh” as a counter-rhythm, which sounds awesome, though not sure we really needed to hear him talking about breast milk before MIA’s politically charged treatise and heart-hurting confessional about growing up without a pops. MIA gets multiple daps for repping single moms, and “Baby,” off the Major Lazer Mishka mix (and Prince Zimboo’s Facebook page), proves MIA, Switch and Diplo remain the most powerful trio of all the potential Major Lazer combos (you probably found this by googling), their collective intensity fitting together like global diaspora Tetris. Sidebar: MIA’s kid in Henry Holland (above) is just like, the cutest shit ever.
