M.I.A. is No Rihanna, Madonna, Mariah, or Ariana

    M.I.A. just released a video for her new throbbing, bass-fueled track, "P.O.W.A." Featuring several different samples, the electronic song is robotic and somehow almost frightening. At one point, M.I.A. sings, "I'm not Rihanna, I'm not Madonna / I'm not Mariah or Ariana / I've been around in this world causing drama / The real spice girl, hot girl power."

    And hot girl power for sure, because this video, which is self-directed, is marvelous. M.I.A. dips in warm colors, covering her face and body in a glistening red and orange cloth. The way it shines and contrasts with the light blue sky is incredible - that, plus the shot of her laying in a truck filled with bright yellow and pink flowers all make for a very aesthetically pleasing visual. The video also includes a lengthy line of people moving in beat to the song, representing unison. M.I.A. may not be Mariah, but she's shaping up to be a pretty boss ass visionary.
