Looking Forward to Looking Back: 10 Albums Celebrating Anniversaries in 2012

Kala by M.I.A.
The Anniversary: 5th, Released in 2007

M.I.A had planned to work with producer-extraordinaire Timbaland for her sophomore album, Kala. But she had problems acquiring a long-term U.S. visa, and scheduling problems led to only a single collaboration, “Come Around.” Turns out, though, he wasn’t even really needed; Kala is one of the best albums of 2007 – if only the same thing could be said about its follow-up, /\/\ /\ Y /\, and 2010. For M.I.A.’s fourth album (and she’s currently in the studio), I’d like for her to remember her thoughts from five years prior, and try to hook up with Timbaland. It’d certainly be more interesting than "Teqkilla.”
