M.I.A.'s first song, Galang," was pressed into 500 copies and released by the Showbiz label. It didn't take long for the song a bold, righteous amalgamation of hip-hop, electro, dancehall, grime, and baile funk to make an impact with DJs. She wound up signing a contract with XL, which re-released the single and, eventually, debut album Arular. Anticipation for the release was considerable, only heightened by the Piracy Funds Terrorism mixtape she put together with DJ Diplo. Her second album, Kala, was recorded while she spent time in numerous countries. M.I.A. produced most of its tracks with Switch; Blaqstarr, Diplo, and Timbaland. One single from the album, "Paper Planes," became a surprise hit after it was used in trailers for the film Pineapple Express; it eventually reached the Top Ten. The soundtrack for the Academy Award-winning Slumdog Millionaire also featured M.I.A.'s music; the release featured new material from the artist and was the first disc issued on her N.E.E.T. label. Maya, the third M.I.A. album, was released next. Her fourth album, Matangi, included the internationally successful "Bad Girls", along with its Grammy- nominated music video..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking MIA.

MIA's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of an offer.
CTI can give you exact pricing once we submit your event details to MIA. How much MIA does cost to do an event depends on many variables and the fees we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with booking. Popularity, career stage, and current demand can cause an increase or decrease in pricing. The final fee may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for MIA to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI can not give out direct contact information for the agent or manager of MIA. If you want to send them a message, a gift, or request a free appearance or donation of time, then we will not pass along such material or communications to any of our contacts.
There is low probability for MIA to work a gig for anything substantially less than the published price range. We will negotiate with MIA on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book MIA, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider MIA's travel costs, as they may require an entourage of staff and equipment. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for MIA, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
