MIA’s fifth studio album, ‘A.I.M.’, is due on September 9, and the rapper has previously said it will be last. ‘Go Off’, the album’s lead single, dropped in July. It was recently followed by Diplo collab ‘Bird Song’.
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.
