How many dutty wine swing it away?
Dutty Wine is a form of Jamaican head dance, characteristically danced by young women. M.I.A. herself:
When I did Boyz, it was name-checking all these dance moves that come from Jamaica—I hoped the Jamaicans would get it. They meant so much to me at the time I was writing it. I went there to shoot the video, and they loved it! When I took it back there and played it to those people and showed them, This is what I wrote when I thought about you, they got it. And that makes me feel like I don’t really care what happens with this album, and I don’t care if Interscope loves or hates me."
