M.I.A. is back following the release of her latest album AIM and ready to share new music, releasing a music video that she directed herself for a track called ‘P.O.W.A.’ The singer said upon the release of AIM that she’d be taking a break from music — but it’s not surprising that the current political state of the world would have M.I.A. back on the scene; she’s an artist that thrives on making music with a message.
The stunning visual for ‘P.OW.A’ sees M.I.A. covered in roses on a truck bed, juxtaposed with various stunning landscapes, and shots of a dance troupe performing a routine dressed in outfits donning M.I.A.’s AIM era logo are added in for good measure.
While ‘P.O.W.A.’ is not a cut off AIM, Interscope is promoting the album with the track’s music video – and this could be a good sign that more music (or perhaps even a re-release?) may be in the future. One thing’s for sure – when people around the world find themselves oppressed, M.I.A. remains fearless and she sure has the power to come fight for their rights.
Watch the music video for ‘P.O.W.A’ above. Buy AIM on iTunes.
