She’s been laying low, but M.I.A. is back and letting freedom ring on her new single “Borders.” The rebellious rapper addresses political and social issues on the worldly record. Over a rattling beat, she questions values, history, and family.
“Your beliefs, what’s up with that?” she asks. “Your power, what’s up with that?”
Over the summer, M.I.A. released her audiovisual project, which included a video for Matahdatah Scroll 01 “Broader Than a Border.”
