La Mala Rodriguez - No Pidas Perdon

After a short hiatus, la Mala Rodriguez returns to the scene with the first single from her latest album, Dirty Bailarina, "No Pidas Perdon." The video itself is quite the trip, filled with gasoline-drenched dead bodies, stolen briefcases, and alien hideouts (and a Shareef Abdur-Rahim Kings jersey?! WHOA), not to mention la Mala's tilted-beehive sporting assassin rocking the hell out of that KISS shirt. But it's the song that's the prize here, with a cheeky double-tracked chorus, and a beat that sounds eerily similar to the first few seconds of "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)," not to mention the sort of flow and lyrical dexterity that we've come to appreciate from la Mala. If the whole record sounds like this, we've got a winner on our hands.
