After promising a new album this summer, M.I.A. just posted a new video for a piece of music called “POC THAT STILL A RYDA.” On the YouTube description, she says, “This song is a mix of all the songs on my upcoming Lp” — which is pretty confusing, since it’s definitely just one song. However, it is a pretty cool song — one of those effortlessly breezy dance-rap tracks that just radiates natural cool. The video that accompanies the song appears to be footage of a horse race in the middle of a desert. Below, listen to the song and read what M.I.A. has to say about it.
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.
A new M.I.A. album — if it is, in fact, coming this summer — would be welcome.
