M.I.A. Shares Powerful 'POC THAT STILL A RYDA' Song & Video

A new M.I.A. album is on the way. In early May, the singer previewed a new song called "Finally" via Periscope, just days after revealing she doesn't have a U.S. Visa and therefore cannot promote a new release. On now, M.I.A. has shared a new song and video titled "POC THAT STILL A RYDA." 

On the track, released Wednesday, she raps from a place of racial awareness, "I'm not white like the Oscar," and "I'm here for every color, including Black Lives Matter." The best music comes from this place—a meaningful message of sociopolitical depth.

M.I.A. wrote of the YouTube clip:

"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 fucking know.

we in this together."
