What's up with that

More M.I.A. More M.I.A.

Ever-political propagandist British artist MIA has dropped her newest video from her upcoming record, Matahdatah — the refugee-depicting Borders which is self-directed and debuted on Apple Music.

Portraying refugees on boats, climbing barbed wire fences and fleeing cross-country, MIA stands amidst them flinging lyrics like "What's up with that?", "What's up with that?" and "What's up with that?", questioning the validity of concepts like the police, boat people, privilege and "bein' bae".

Her intentions are great, her political stances solid and the videography superb, but the lyrics… we're not so sure about.

Take a look at the video below.
