i-D’s first ever music video, made in collaboration with KENZO, is a rainbow rave explosion starring glow-in-the-dark goddess M.I.A. Come on, let’s dance unto infinity with Y.A.L.A. (short for Maya’s anti-YOLO mantra, “You Always Live Again”), it’s happy as a yoyo, it’s trippy as a polo, it’s a lot! Directed by Daniel Sannwald and styled by Julia Sarr-Jamois, Y.A.L.A’s more than just a song, it's a way of life, it’s a philosophy... and a highlight of M.I.A.’s most spiritual album so far, Matangi, which takes its name from the emerald-green Tantric Mahavidyas of music and spoken word. Now, let’s drink some Cointreau, I keep it in my poncho ☺
