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

m.i.a., matangi, satellite nights

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.
