MIA's 'Bad Girls' Isn't Exactly New, But Still A 'Return' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Here's an earworm for your morning: a kinda new single from MIA called "Bad Girls." It appeared in rougher form on the last day of 2010 as part of "Vicki Leekx," MIA's in-name-only WikiLeaks inspired mixtape. Back then it was unpolished, but now, as NME says, it's got "a fancy French manicure." The Danja-produced track is being called a "return," as well as savvy promo for the MIA/Madonna/Nicki Minaj collaboration "Give Me All Your Luvin"/Superbowl extravaganza. And sure, it serves those functions...but deep down it's also just a catchy song, wanting to be loved. Check it out below, and stay tuned for the "Bad Girls" video, which drops Friday.
