M.I.A. – “GOALS”
Though M.I.A. warned that last year’s A.I.M. might be her final album, she’s continued to release new music. In February it was “P.O.W.A.,” and today it’s “GOALS,” a relatively mellow jam that plays off the idea of “relationship goals” and interpolates the Depeche Mode classic “Personal Jesus.”
In the song’s YouTube caption, M.I.A. thanked her “hardcore fans” and shouted out accused NSA leaker Reality Winner:
DEDICATED TO MY HARDCORE FANS THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNFALTERING DEDICATION AND SUPPORT. YOU HAVE GIVEN ME A SLIVER OF HOPE IN HUMANITY. STAY STRONG. REALITY WINNERZ.
The “GOALS” video is a series of gifs curated by artist Jaime Martinez, who’ll be exhibiting at the M.I.A.-curated Meltdown Festival in London this month. Watch below.
