British rapper M.I.A. has been making music for nearly two decades, and using her voice to call attention to various issues for just as long. After the release of her 2016 album AIM, the polarizing “Paper Planes” rapper expressed her desire to retire from music altogether. Since the turn of this decade, however, she’s been gearing up to release a new album.

MATA, M.I.A.’s sixth studio album and first in six years, is out today via Island Records. But rather than the attention being on her new music, much of the focus has been on statements she made on Twitter in the days leading up to the album’s release likening Alex Jones’ billion-dollar defamation verdict to celebrities promoting COVID-19 vaccines. “If Alex Jones pays for lying shouldn’t every celebrity pushing vaccines pay too?” she wrote, adding, “If you have no critical thinking faculty, this is about as crazy as we should get before a nuclear war wipe[s] out the human race.”This album kicks off with a real sense of urgency, like there’s an imminent threat to the world’s music, before gradually transforming into a musical celebration. MATA, M.I.A.’s sixth album, is undeniably radical. It contrasts with her last album, the incredible AIM, which traded rough-edged sounds for an exploration of trap and soothing melodies. Perhaps the English musician needed to convey the current social climate, the crises we face and the uncertain state of the world through music. MATA is certainly in line with the political stance of its creator, and it’s unquestionably a female album. The choruses, the themes, the visual aesthetics: everything revolves around women and their affirmation, creating a revolutionary and collective vibe. There are frantic, oriental rhythms on tracks such as ‘Beep’ and ‘Puththi’, as well as passages where the production is surprisingly bare, like on ‘100 % Sustainable’ – a heavenly a cappella. M.I.A.’s sound hasn’t aged at all: she simply draws upon what made her music a success in the years 2000-2010. She thrives on these sounds, injecting them with a current and pragmatic edge. If that constitutes musical aggression, then so much the better. – Brice Miclet
