M.I.A. has become a hip hop superstar and rebel in the spotlight over the years, and since pulling stunts like flipping the bird at a Superbowl appearance. The artist has a new album - Matangi - coming out this Summer, but she is outwardly so excited about the project that she can barely contain herself.
While she may not be climbing the Himalayas, she is doing the next best thing by teasing her fans with a video of people dancing to her new single, “Come Walk With Me.” Just some great dancing, and no controversy around the song yet, but we can expect some drama soon if history has anything to say about it.
