She also made the track available for streaming this morning on the website MatangiMixtape.comThe track shares a name with M.I.A.'s upcoming fourth album (the title references a Hindu goddess as well as M.I.A.'s birthname), and might give some hint of what to expect from Matangi. The new album is due sometime late this spring or summer.

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
