Named one of the ten defining artists of the 2000's decade by Rolling Stone and one of the world's 100 most influential people by Time magazine, British singer-songwriter M.I.A., aka Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam, has been nominated for an Academy Award and two Grammys ("Paper Planes" and "Swagga Like Us"). Her most recent original album, 2010's Maya, went Top 10 on the Billboard 200 album chart and #1 on the Dance/Electronic chart. Today M.I.A.'s video for her brand new track, "Bad Girls," premieres exclusively on Noisey -- VICE's new music channel on YouTube.

The video was shot in Ouarzazate, Morocco, and is directed by Romain Gavras (M.I.A. "Born Free" and JUSTICE "Stress")

"It was dope to have so many people from so many different backgrounds speaking so many different languages come together to create something that we believed in," says M.I.A about the video. "I thought I was gonna die on the shoot when I saw the drifting. It was a four day shoot so everyone was on edge the whole time specifically ME when I had to do bluesteel singing to the camera while the cars did doughnuts on the wet road ten feet away. In my mind I was thinking how I was gonna deliver the video to Vice with no legs."

The track "Bad Girls" was released via all major digital retail outlets January 31st following a well-received premiere on Pitchfork January 30th.

M.I.A.'s fourth album is due this summer.
