Santogold

Santi White (born September 25, 1976), better known by her stage name Santogold, is an American songwriter, producer and singer and her debut album Santogold was released in 2008.

She mixes several genres in one the same way MIA does. She is also on the soundtrack for the upcoming Notorious B.I.G. Movie/Biopic “Notorious”, along side the one and only Jay-Z the song titled “Brooklyn Go Hard” is a perfect example on how to showcase her talented self, one of the tightest collaborations of 2008 in my book.

You should also recognize her for her involvement in the Converse Commercial co-starred with Pharrell & Julian Casablancas that aired late 2008.

She’s finally getting some light and hopefully she will be a force not to be messed with for 2009.

M.I.A.

Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam (Tamil: மாதங்கி ‘மாயா’ அருள்பிரகாசம்) (born 17 July 1977) better known by her stage name M.I.A., is aBritish songwriter, record producer, vocalist and artist.

An accomplished visual artist by 2002, she came to prominence in early 2004 through file-sharing of her singles “Galang” and “Sunshowers” on the Internet. She released her Mercury Prize nominated debut album Arular in 2005. Her second album, Kala, was released in 2007 and gained her mainstream chart success and a Grammy Award nomination for Record of the Year in the US with her single “Paper Planes” (2008).

Her compositions have been noted to encompass various genres, often with political lyricism and artwork. M.I.A. has described her music style as being “other. In addition to her work as a graphic designer, providing artwork and photography for releases and as a director of music videos, she has also experimented with documentary film and in 2008 released a collection of her fashion designs. M.I.A. is the founder of the record label N.E.E.T.

As seen in the pics these two women are no strangers to eachothers craft since in the future they will have a collabortion For M.I.A.’s next album and believe they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
