M.I.A. Must Record a New Song

Look, we love "Paper Planes" and all, but it's been everywhere for the past two years, and today it's been named Pitchfork's No. 3 song of the decade and it soundtracks the trailer for the new Michael Moore movie. Isn't it time to give this track a gold watch? We know M.I.A.'s a new mom, but couldn't she hire a babysitter for a couple of hours, sneak down to the studio, and record a new song about taking people's money, now that she's completely desensitized us all to the sound of gunfire?
