M.I.A. is getting ready to release her fourth studio album next month. The Sri Lankan star has had some big collaborations throughout her career, and she’ll add another name to that list with a song featuring Zayn Malik. M.I.A. talked with Entertainment Weekly about how the collaboration with Zayn got started and took off despite the two being on other sides of the world–M.I.A. was in India while she and Zayn worked on the song remotely.
