Video: M.I.A. – “Borders”

posted by Oscar November 27, 2015

Not long after releasing new track “Borders,” M.I.A. quickly delivers the song’s accompanying music video. In these self-directed visuals we find the UK artist join refugees on their trek to reach freer lands as they climb fences, crowd into boats, and she even walks on water.

Note the redesigned Paris Saint-Germain kit with its Fly Emirates sponsor logo in the front instead reading “Fly Pirates.” Gotta love M.I.A. See the clip above.

MIA - UNBREAK my Mixtape"

After some dodgy moments that pitted the UK rapper and her record label Interscope, a new M.I.A. track has surfaced. “UNBREAK my Mixtape” has a much more toned down sound compared some of the singer’s hits, with a beat that sounds like a Hip Hop beat you’d hear in the early 90’s. The song samples Blur’s “Tender” and Karen Dalton’s “I Love More Than Words Can Say.”

M.I.A. – “Bring the Noize”
