[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/DEeFZqF1LMg" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

M.I.A. released the Vicki Leekx mixtape at the top of January with another custom web domain, which included an interactive globe and listeners popping up as dots across continents. We should’ve known that was just the beginning: in this video, released on Wednesday, we see the globe spinning, lit up with M.I.A. fans, plus her internet-crash style imagery and real Wikileaks footage. This is just part one, so expect more chaos soon…

Marsha Ambrosius Video: “Far Away”

Marsha Ambrosius (of Floetry fame) has released this video for “Far Away,” a single off her upcoming album on J Records. Soak in this message from the artist:

Dear Friends,

Every year over 1 million people commit suicide. Some were bullied because of their sexuality. I lost a friend to suicide, and I’m asking all of you to support alternative lifestyles. Don’t put up with or join in with bullying. It’s time we become more aware in this world. Take responsibility to make a difference. So if my music can save one life, I’ve done my job.

I love you all so much!

Marsha
