M.I.A. - Y.A.L.A.

The rapper's karmic rejoinder to Drake gets a cosmic video.

It seems like it wouldn't be an M.I.A. video if it didn't start with a warning about the flashing images to come, and in that sense her new clip for Y.A.L.A. (premiered today on the dazzling new i-D site) is nothing too surprising. The track, which calls out loveable guy Drake for his ubiquitous 2012 catchphrase #YOLO by countering it with the statement "You Always Live Again", is brought to life with the use of explosions of colour and light that capture its brash, stampeding energy.
