“This song is a mix of all the songs on my upcoming Lp – had to do a remix to let u know , i been poor , i been rich , i been brown , i been black , i seen white and i been around the world a few times ay ay ay ay . LOVE IS THE ANSWER what the question is i don’t fucking know.
we in this together.”

It seems M.I.A. is truly on the brink of releasing some new heat in the months ahead. And if “Borders” was any indication of the political savvy Matangi will be wielding, we should be prepared for all sorts of barbs on the new record. Today, she reinforces “Borders” with the release of a desert-trekking audiovisual treatment for the fiery new single “Poc That Still A Ryda,” in which she pledges her allegiance to Black Lives Matter and likens the civil rights battle currently taking place in the states to that of persons of color from around the globe. You can watch the M.I.A.’s new video down below along with a full statement up top. Keep an eye on us and your ear to the ground for updates on hew much-anticipated new album.
