The Paper Planes star went public with her feud with Interscope executives over the weekend (12-14Aug16) when she posted a tweet begging them to let her release the track she recorded with her ex-boyfriend this week (beg15Aug16).
She explained record label officials had refused to clear the song, writing: "Interscope wont clear the Diplo bird song so it can't can't be released!" She added, "please sort it out."
In a Periscope broadcast on Thursday (18Aug16), M.I.A. confirmed the record company dispute had been resolved, and the new Diplo-produced version of Bird Song has been released. The track will appear on M.I.A's upcoming album, AIM, which she insists will be her last.
