Singles 9/23

A mediocre week, reliant on the star power of Tkay Maidza + Killer Mike and Butterfly’s interpolation of Robin S’s “Show Me Love.” Robert Christgau’s effusions over M.I.A.’s latest persuade me to give it a fifth listen, but I’m budging for only one thing: the last minute of “Freedun” sounds wistful and lovely in the car, where the beat works.
