M.I.A. released two songs through her O H M N I site in 2020, ‘CTRL’ and ‘OHMNI 202091’. The latter marked her first track in three years, following 2017’s ‘POWA’. The musician’s latest studio album, ‘AIM’, arrived in 2016.

Back in April, M.I.A. announced she was entering the NFT market to launch her ‘NFT GARAGE DANCE’ series.

GIFTY 1, which was released through the “creative playground” Foundation, was described as “bookending [M.I.A.’s] 25-year tenure as a digital artist and collected as a GIF”. She followed it up with KALA COYN, her first-ever digital artwork that was created in 1996.
