Madonna turned down an amazing song by M.I.A. , called SEXODUS
In an interview with The Guardian, M.I.A. revealed that she initially offered her Matangi track "Sexodus" to her Super Bowl and "Give Me All Your Luvin'" collaborator Madonna. "I actually played that song to Madonna when I wrote it and said, 'Oh, you can have this,'" she said of the Weeknd-featuring track. "She gave it back to me." She apparently asked Madonna what she thought about the song's sentiment: When you have it all, what should you do with it? "So I was like, what d'you do? And she said, 'You spend it!' And I said, 'No, I don't think that's the right answer.'" Did that change her opinion of Madonna? "No, because Madonna is true to Madonna," she replied. "She always said she was a material girl." Matangi is out November 5 through Interscope. Read Carrie Battan's interview with M.I.A.
