M.I.A Dedicates ‘New’ Song ’27’ to Amy Winehouse

Of course it was inevitable that we’d be hearing many artists covering Amy Winehouse but rapper M.I.A has instead paid tribute by posting a previously unreleased demo of her own in memory.

You can listen to it here and read the lyrics. Although M.I.A did tweet this song in relation to the death of Amy Winehouse, it’s worth remembering that the song was in fact wrote in memory of all her friends that also died at the age of 27.

I’ll also put the emphasis on the word ‘unfinished’.

So what do you think of the song?

Is it a fitting tribute or is the timing a little too oppurtunist?
