M.I.A. took the stage last night at Montreal’s Metropolis venue to perform “Only 1 U” live for the first time, just after the track made waves on the Internet. The fan-filmed video of the performance makes it look cool in a way that only the London artist could pull off, with a funky stage set-up that reflected the jittery tune.
Details of M.I.A.’s upcoming fourth album Mantagi remain ambiguous — the delays have been endless — but with songs like “Only 1 U” and the energetic banger “Bring The Noize” it seems like M.I.A. is heading back to her politically-charged, synth-heavy roots.
Watch up top.
