Recently, M.I.A. dropped a track named “Goals” earlier this summer, and with AIM teased as her potentially final album, new tracks are being revealed to support the project. Now, the pop artist has a new effort with the song “Load ‘Em” featuring Dexta Daps. The dancehall-influenced track is speculated to be released in celebration of her sophomore album Kala.
