“Your privilege, what’s up with that?” M.I.A.’s “Borders” was a slap in the face last year, urging us to get out of our comfort zone, to speak up and define freedom anew. The British artist is restlessly concerned with politics and social commitment. Her fifth album “AIM” is full of sad truths you’d rather want to shy away from. Her artistic output is more necessary than ever, and finally, M.I.A. will grace the stage at Melt for her only Germany show in 2017. It’s about time, to be honest!
