Sonically, the track lands somewhere between her previous two tracks. Built around a strutting guitar riff and a loaded snare, the song explodes into a dozen diverging rhythms containing her most anthemic chorus in years. The handclaps and cheery call-and-response elements seem like a cheeky nod to her cameo in Madonna's "Give Me All Your Luvin'," but hey, what's M.I.A. without a little controversy?
"Come Walk With Me" comes at us through a pretty wild, animated lyric video. The levity — and lack of aggression — is noteworthy for an M.I.A. clip, but we can't help but wonder if it's all a clever trap. Will the official video be just as breezy and colorful, or will it sucker punch us all into queasy submission like the graphic, banned "Born Free" video? (Complex)
