M.I.A., 'Paper Planes' and 'O Saya' with A.R. Rahman ('Slumdog Millionaire,' 2008)
"My daughter sent 'Paper Planes' to me, early. And it was perfect. M.I.A. said, 'No, you can’t just use it. I want to see how you’ll use it.' And she's very smart. She gave us two or three notes on the film, which had nothing to do with the music. And she worked with A.R. Rahman, who did the rest of the score, and is like Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna and Beyoncé all wrapped up in one in South India. They wrote 'O Saya' together and were nominated for an Oscar, and that was just incredible."
