M.I.A. has just released a video for a new song entitled, "POC THAT STILL A RYDA." M.I.A. wrote about the track:
"This song is a mix of all the songs on my upcoming Lp – had to do a remix to let u know , i been poor , i been rich , i been brown , i been black , i seen white and i been around the world a few times ay ay ay ay . LOVE IS THE ANSWER what the question is i don’t f***ing know.
we in this together."
M.I.A. got on Periscope in May and revealed that her new album would be coming out in "July. Summertime." She added, "It's got 12 songs. I had to take the Disney thing off. I put 'Galang' on it instead, I sampled myself. I wanted to say, 'Whatever, I can't get Lion King, I'm gonna use my own song! That way no one can stop it." At the end of the video, she plays a snippet of a new song, which she unveiled the lyrics to last month on her Instagram.
Talking about the album, M.I.A. added, "(I realized) you can make a record that's happy about surviving. And not constantly talk about fight. At the end of the day, I feel like—maybe this is totally gibberish to everyone—but it's probably better to remind people about survival than it is about the moment you go to battle. Because that's just a moment."
