Vibrant Hip-Hop Dancehall


Known for her eclectic range of hip-hop, dancehall and electronic music, M.I.A. makes albums as vibrantly colored as her clothes. In 2003, the British vocalist, songwriter and record producer released several of her songs on the Internet, including a runaway club hit called "Galang." She was immediately signed to a label, which released Arular (featuring hip-hip producer Diplo); the disc was nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2005.
