Trippy visuals for energetic Matangi track


Watch: MIA premieres suitably colourful, loud video for 'YALA' Photo:

MIA has debuted the colourful video for her Matangi track 'YALA'. Check it out below.

The effect-loaded colourful visuals perfectly suit the highly energised track, which was produced by The Partysquad and is a play on the Drake-championed phrase of 2012, YOLO (You Only Live Once).

In 'YALA', MIA argues: "Back home where I come from we keep being born again and again and again / That’s why they invented karma."

Watch the video for MIA's 'YALA' below:

MIA, real name Maya Arulpragasam, performed the track, which is the fourth single from Matangi, on Conan O'Brien this week.

Matangi, her fourth studio album, also features tracks 'Bad Girls' 'Bring the Noize' and 'Come Walk With Me'.
