EDITORS’ NOTES

The border-crossing pop visionary returns with her most positive and self-assured album yet. Like her past triumphs, AIM is both thoughtful and provocative. Between the bhangra and boom-bap is the lived-in confidence of an artist who no longer has to shout to be heard, evidenced on the Delhi dancehall of “Visa” and the album-closing “Survivor,” her most unabashedly pretty song yet.
