Why M.I.A. Is Threatening To Leak Her Own Album

By  | 

M.I.A. is threatening to leak her own album if her label doesn’t put it out sooner rather than later. The controversial singer took to Twitter to issue the ultimatum, writing:

“Who would stop MATANGI from coming out? If Interscope takes longer I can always leak this next week and make a new one by the time they are ready.”

M.I.A.’s frustration is understandable as the album was completed over a year ago. The “Paper Planes” singer claims her label thinks the album is too “positive” and are reluctant to release it because of that. “We’re having a bit of an issue at the label. They’re like ‘You need to like darken it up a bit’. I don’t know what it is but as soon as I work that out … I’m taking my time to decide what they mean. It’s an interesting one for me. It’s like, ‘We just built you up as the public enemy No. 1 and now you’re coming out with all this positive stuff.'”
