M.I.A. Preps “Bad Girls” Remix With Missy Elliott, Azealia Banks & Rye Rye
M.I.A. can handle being a “Bad Girl” all by herself, but she’s getting some superstar help for her single’s remix. Maya has tapped Missy Elliott, Azealia Banks and Rye Rye for the official remix to her track, off her fourth studio album, Matangi. “BAD GIRLS REMIXES COMING SOON !!!!!!” M.I.A. excitedly tweeted. “Fuck!!!! you all killed it !!!!!! in your own wayzzzzzzzz high in the himalays again!” Azealia shared her enthusiasm as well: “OMGGGG YAYYYY!!!!!!! I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS ‘BAD GIRLS’ REMIX ITS GONNA BE A MOVIE!” A movie? Is that an indication that we’re getting a brand new video? Not that we need one, necessarily — the already-existing vid is epic enough — but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t die seeing any of these ladies joining Maya on a skiing automobile.
This is the first collaboration with the “Paper Planes” singer for Azealia, but not for Missy or Rye Rye. M.I.A. and Missy teamed up for “Bad Man” on 2005’s The Cookbook, while Rye Rye paired up with the controversial artist for four new tunes on Rye’s Go! Pop! Bang! debut, including “Sunshine” and “Rock Off, Shake Off”, which surfaced online earlier today.
