Eccentric hip-hop badass M.I.A.
is out with another single "Bad Girls," which is officially available tomorrow (1/31). It will be featured on her forthcoming album (which is still in the works) and is expected to be out this summer. The new single sounds a lot like friend and previous tour-mate Santigold's "The Creator," and could pass as Timbaland production, but was produced by friend and previous studio partner Danja.
M.I.A. brags about her swag and her carefree lifestyle-- "live fast / die young / bad girls do it well." The single is hot, but lacks some of the ingenuity her other singles had, all the while maintaining that unique balance of genres that M.I.A. always seems to accomplish. After three trendsetting albums and the birth of a baby boy, she still gets kudos for making a song that will definitely be, as Carles
might put it, "bangin' on the rdio."
