No, the “27” of the title of Maya's new demo is no coincidence. She could have gone to her house in Camden and left some roses, but M.I.A. Decided to pay tribute to the late Amy Winehouse with a song. While Amy's name isn't mentioned anywhere, the track refers to that doomed “27 Club” in the story of a friend of M.I.A.'s not being able to cleanse herself on the inside. Get ready for the downpour, because we're afraid we're going to be hearing a lot of pieces like this one in the coming weeks. Some may argue opportunist songs, within which friends and enemies will give their view on the woman with the Ronettes bun.
