Pop Singer & songwriter known as M.I.A. with that definite indie flavor returns after her hiatus to drop the new single, “The One”, (which can be heard below) and smashes all expectations with this surprising follow up. She just signed to Island Records and will release her new album titled “MATA”, later in the year. She is claiming now to have found Jesus and says this.., “The history is, even if it costs me my career, I won’t lie. I will tell the truth, and I will tell you what’s on my mind and my heart. So if I’m coming back now saying Jesus is real, there’s a point, you know?” [via Pitchfork and Variety]. This is a move that will be unsettling for many outside our typical “Christian” music scene and even some believers will be there to judge. You know what I say? Screw it! Let her be herself and share this Truth with a world who very much is in search of something more meaningful that will bring comfort and peace. If hurting people can discover this Truth through an artist like M.I.A., then let’s encourage and not tear down. Yes, yes, I am well aware of artists in the past who have stumbled, fell down, bloodied themselves, ultimately found redemption, and yet sometimes fell again. Let’s build bridges, not tear down and obliterate these connections by putting up walls.
