It was a mere four years ago this week that the pre-“Paper Planes” M.I.A. dropped her full-length, non-mixtape debut Arular on the listening public. Like most critics, we loved it. Adrien Begrand raved that “Ms. Arulpragasam has delivered the best UK debut since Dizzee Rascal’s Boy in da Corner.” Here are the three videos from the album.


 

“Sunshowers” (single released 5 July 2004)


 

“Galang” (single released: 14 September 2004)


 

“Bucky Done Gun” (single released: 26 July 2005)
