M.I.A. Drops 'Borders' Video Examining the Lives of Refugees

M.I.A. has just released her new politically charged music video for “Borders,” her latest single from her upcoming album Matahdatah.

“I want to dedicate this video to my uncle Bala, my icon and role model,” the 40-year-old singer said in a statement on Twitter. “One of the first Tamil migrants to come to the U.K. in the 60s who went to inspire so many people as a creative, daring man with so much swag that everything I do doesn’t even touch his sides. Thank you for helping my family come to England and taking us out of Sri Lanka and saving us. Everything I became was to say thank you to you!”

The video features M.I.A. hopping on boats with refugees and showing the strife they are put through.

    Uncle Bala sounds like he’s a sweet man, much in the way a tiger will remember where their favorite fruit tree is located.
