M.I.A. is on top form throughout the deceivingly meditative ‘Temple’, with some help from K-pop megastar G-Dragon; Pusha T and Future work together to chop up the competition on ‘Kung Fu’; ‘Way From Me’, with Tirzah, is addictive yet teasing; and ‘Make It Bang’ steers towards Jersey club, riding over TT The Artist’s lively flow.
