M.I.A. is back on the scene with a new single and video for a track titled ‘P.O.W.A.,’ which was self-directed. The record stands out for many reasons including the lyrics with a line as follows:
“I’m not Rihanna, I’m not Madonna, I’m not Mariah or Ariana/I’m been around in this world causing drama/The real spice girl, hot girl power.”
The song is M.I.A.’s first release since her AIM album in September. Before the album’s release, she announced that the record would be her last and said that she was contemplating retirement.
