MIA has re-iterated that she thinks her latest album will be her last.
Before she dropped fifth album ‘AIM’ last Friday (September 9), the rapper had said it would be her final full-length offering. Asked if this is really the case during an appearance on French TV show Le Grand Journal today (September 16), she replied: “I think so, yeah.”
Watch MIA discuss her new album below at around 6 mins 20 secs into the interview.
MIA also performed ‘AIM’ track ‘Borders’ during her appearance on Le Grand Journal earlier today. Watch below.
MIA recently criticised MTV for not nominating her music video for ‘Borders’ for a VMA. “This is a perfect example of ‘allowed’ voice vs excluded voices,” she wrote on Twitter.
Her album ‘AIM’ also features a collaboration with Zayn, ‘Freedun’, which MIA recently admitted that she initially felt was “too mainstream”. However, she also said that the track later grew on her, adding: “If I was going to have a collaboration, and have someone like Zayn, then this is the perfect song.”
In July, the British artist was dropped from the line-up of London’s Afropunk festival following her controversial comments about the Black Lives Matter movement.
