Music Monday: M.I.A.

Always good for a “rise up” anthem, M.I.A. released this gem last week.

This new song (along with last year’s “Borders”–both of which have stunning self-directed music videos) is just another reminder (if you needed it) of the importance of artists like M.I.A.  I appreciate and admire her because she is one of the few mainstream artists who use their platforms to make direct and clear statements about their experiences and where they stand. Whenever she releases new music, I make it a point to listen carefully.

[Keeping it short this week, because things are a bit mad at work. Anyway, take some time this week to watch all of M.I.A.’s awesome music videos. Stay strong!]


Addendum:

If you’re going to have a ‘Smash the Patriarchy’ playlist, this song better be on it:
