M.I.A. (born Mathangi Arulpragasam on July 18, 1975 in Hounslow, London) is a British rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, visual artist, and activist.

While on that tour M.I.A. met Canadian artist Peaches who inspired M.I.A. to start making her own music. M.I.A. soon signed to XL Recordings and released a pair of highly acclaimed albums such as her 2005 Mercury nominated debut Arular and the follow-up Kala, as well as a string of hit songs such as Paper Planes and Bad Girls.

M.I.A. was nominated for British Female Solo Artist at the 2009 BRIT Awards and was awarded an MBE for services to music in 2019. Image: Tom Oldham/Shutterstock
