Sexodus by M.I.A.

Album: MatangiReleased: 2013
  • This swirling R&B song is a reprise of another Matangi tack, "Exodus."

    "Sexodus" begins with the sound of helicopter blades whirring and was produced by Hit-Boy, whilst "Exodus" is more orchestral, starts with a spoken-word portion, and was helmed by Switch.
  • Both this song and "Exodus" samples the Weeknd's "Lonely Star." M.I.A. stopped by Hot 97's Morning Show to discuss her borrowing of the Canadian crooner. "I feel like the Weeknd probably is gonna inspire a whole generation of babies being born," the rapper said. "In 18 years we'll find out there was a little peak in the population, then I'd put that down to the Weeknd."
  • M.I.A. worked with Madonna on "Give Me All Your Luvin'" and apparently the Queen of Pop turned down this song for her MDNA album. M.I.A. told The Observer: "I actually played that song to Madonna when I wrote it. [I] said, 'Oh, you can have this.' She gave it back to me."

    M.I.A. added that she asked Madonna what she thought of the question behind the song: when you have it all, what should you do with it? "So I was like, what d'you do? And she said, 'You spend it!' And I said, no, I don't think that's the right answer."
