Go! Pop! Bang! (Bonus Tracks, Edited)
by Rye Rye
Released: May 2012
M.I.A.'s hype-girl finally gets her spotlight. If you loved her on Maya's tours, then you'll enjoy "Holla Holla" and "Hotter," songs where she gets to shake and sass over skittering B-more funk. Those tracks are undercut by failed dance-pop like "DNA" (with Young Money B-teamer Porcelain Black). Rye Rye's hyperactive delivery is a poor fit for the EDM fad -- she virtually disappears amid Robyn's chorus on "Never Will Be Mine" -- even if that seems like a surer path to success than the cool, understated melodies of "Sunshine," her collaboration with M.I.A. and Go! Pop! Bang!'s highlight.
