See M.I.A. Blast Through 'Y.A.L.A.' at Soho House's 'Satellite Nights' Party

Watch exclusive clip from November 5 'Matangi' album-release gig


Earlier this month, M.I.A. celebrated the arrival of her fantastic Matangi album by crashing Soho House's Satellite Nights event series, which had taken up a single-night residency at a Brooklyn warehouse. SPIN helped sponsor the showcase, snapped some photos of the Sri Lankan visionary, and now we've got video footage of Maya Arulpragasam performing "Y.A.L.A.," a life-affirming, Drake-dismissing standout from her fourth LP. Watch highlights from M.I.A.'s smoke-filled, neon-lit show above.

Be sure to read SPIN's review of Matangi, followed by our recent ARTPOP profile of the singer-rapper: M.I.A.: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Artist.
