With the release of AIM, what she said was her final album, M.I.A. seemingly semi-retired from the music game. Five months after she dropped her ultimate project, though, she’s locked and loaded with new music and another creative and vivid video.

Watch the video, which features an interesting coordinated dance and Mathangi laying in a bed of flowers, below.
