“27” is a song M.I.A. recorded long before Amy Winehouse’s death, but it seems appropriate that she release this one today and dedicate it to Amy. If you head over to M.I.A.’s Soundcloud page, you can see the lyrics, along with a message:
Dedicated to all my friends that died at 27.
On Twitter, Maya added: “i recorded this song B4ickileekx and never put it out. its a unfinished demo. R.I.P A.M.Y.”
