Watch M.I.A’s Powerful New Video ‘Borders’

M.I.A released her latest video 'Borders' recently and caused, as she so often does, an Internet uproar. Her self-directed video is a visual commentary on border regimes and the so-called ''refugee crisis.'

M.I.A is no stranger to making politically charged statements in her music and videos, and her latest single off of her forthcoming fifth album, “Matahdatah”, couldn’t be more timely.

In the recently released track ‘Borders,’ M.I.A wants you to get off the Internet to stop and think about the current global refugee crisis and why countries around the world aren’t opening their borders to refugees.

Now, she’s shared the equally powerful video for the song.

The video’s stunning visuals are all the more compelling when juxtaposed with the simple, but impactful lyrics, but most of all with M.I.A herself.

“What’s up with that?”

#GAMEOVER.
