M.I.A. Tackles The Refugee Crisis In New Video “Borders”

Borders, wh’t's up with that?

November 27, 2015

Borders, what's up with that? Politics, what's up with that? M.I.A. asks in her hard-hitting latest single "Borders," released last week. Today, she's shared a self-directed video on Apple Music that makes her message even more explicit: the rapper walks on water and deadpans her way through the song as she's surrounded by refugees making their way across the ocean on over-crowded boats. The single will appear on her forthcoming studio album Mahtahdah, and follows the short film Mahtahdah Scroll 01 Broader Than A Border.
