I.A. has confirmed that her upcoming album, "Mata," will be released in September, no matter what. She has partially explained the delay in its release by waiting for guest verses from other artists.
On August 30, M.I.A. posted an Instagram Story on her page with the message, "Coming soon, I promise," and a clip of what appears to be new music, which you can hear below. I had to wait 2 years for a Doja Cat verse. Then a Nicki one... Then a... Never mind, "she added. “If Mata isn’t out [September] I will leak it myself.”
When it arrives, "Mata" will mark the longest time M.I.A. has gone between releasing records. Her most recent album, 'AIM’, landed back in September of 2016. Since then, she’s released a handful of standalone singles (2017’s "POWA" and 2020’s "CTRL") and appeared on Travis Scott‘s "Franchise" alongside Young Thug.
Late last year, she revealed her sixth album’s title in a video on Instagram where she parodied Facebook, announcing that their company would now be called Meta. “To reflect where I am and what we want to build, I’m proud to announce, starting today, my LP is now 'Mata'."
