M.I.A. is back with a new single “The One”, which is the first breakthrough of the artist’s new album, MATA. The successor to AIM will arrive via Island Records, with which M.I.A. listens to the new music here.
In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, M.I.A. said she “was in a very happy place” when he composed “The One”. Also saying that there are two sides to MATA.
It’s also an album “in a way, rebellious,” says the British rapper. “Everyone is waiting for me to break everything. But that’s not what’s going to happen,” she said. “It’s about the battle between the ego and your search for yourself, your search for a spiritual leader, for spirituality, for the form you have.” “When you think of everything, the universe challenges you. And that happened to me. I’m just here to share it.”
M.I.A. performs on the Heineken Stage on July 8 of NOS Alive, on the Promenade of Algés. This is the first time in 10 years that the London rapper has not played in Portugal.
