M.I.A. sat for an interview with Stephen Colbert before performing “Y.A.L.A.” and “Come Walk With Me” from her Matangi LP live on The Colbert Report. M.I.A. and Colbert chatted about music, politics and the singer’s multitude of monikers before getting down to the business of dropping the bass. She hit the stage awash in red and green lighting that transformed her into a living breathing rendition of the Matangi album cover as she set things off with “Y.A.L.A.” M.I.A. closed her set with an encore of “Come Walk With Me.” Check the footage below to watch her performance on The Colbert Report. Purchase the Matangi LP via iTunes.
