M.I.A.'s AIM Album Finally Is Here!

Feat. Diplo, Skrillex, Zayn Malik and more.

M.I.A. has delivered her new (and potentially her last) album at long last. Called AIM (we see what you did there), the 17-track record sees the political powerhouse collaborate with Skrillex, Diplo, Hit-boy and Zayn Malick.

M.I.A. goes off on upbeat banger after upbeat banger, delivering meaningful lyrics over complicated sonic vibes. You better lap this one up, because according to the rap king herself, it might be the last thing she puts out for a while.

"To make an album is cool, but after that I have to go off and make something else that's difficult and challenging for me because… I dunno, reading the Guardian review is actually the perfect example. They're like, 'Ah well, she's missed the boat, she's not making an album for the club, it's not for the bedroom.' It's like, well, those are not the two only places that people exist in, you represent so many people, you have to stay a bit more rounded than a two-dimensional album. I think that's why I want to go off and explore certain themes in other mediums. I dunno what that is yet, but I just want to do that. It's exciting trying to make other things as well," M.I.A. told Consequence of Sound.
