has been back in the headlines lately -- yesterday the British bad-girl announced the title of her upcoming album A.I.M.
In addition to releasing the album name, she also premiered her new song "Go Off" on BBCs Radio 1
. The song is produced by masterminds Skrillex and Blaqstarr.
M.I.A. spoke with Radio 1 host Annie Mac after she debuted the song on her show and said that this upcoming album is her "cleanest" one yet, meaning no one has come to her complaining about it. Then to the surprise of many, M.I.A dropped the music video for her just-debuted song last night. The video is explosive. Literally
. When speaking with Annie Mac, M.I.A. said that she was not going to have any humans in her video, including herself. With that in mind, it makes sense that the video is solely footage of explosions. So many explosions.
M.I.A. is known for her music videos because they push the envelope and comment on societal or cultural issues, and this video does just that.
