M.I.A.’s Original Savannah Showers


( Boy, I’m getting cheesy with these mash up titles… )

Hey Hey Y’all, it’s time for another 7 O’clock sample!
This week were are exploring the music of M.I.A. We are looking forward to seeing what her new album is going to be like, so I thought I’d look back at some of her hits and open the sample box!
On her debut album ARULAR, M.I.A. had a number of breakout hits, including this one…

That catchy hook was NOT originally written by Ms. Mia, it actually comes from the Bronx based swing group DR BUZZARD’s ORIGINAL SAVANNAH BAND. This group formed in mid 70s and had a number of hits, that have been sampled by such groups as A Tribe Called Quest, Ghostface Killah, De La Soul, and in today’s example, M.I.A.

Here is the original track…
