New track online!

M.I.A.'s new / old track / new single 'Bad Girls' has been unleashed for online streaming, ahead of its 'buy me' release tomorrow, January 31st. In it, M.I.A. extols the virtues of ladies who like to live fast and die young, and promises that "you'll be screaming if I blow you with a bang." The track, which first appeared on her Vicki Leekx mixtape, is a bit of an infectious pop stormer, and proof that M.I.A. is at her best when she refrains from writing mad paranoid stuff about the internet, and quacking on about riots on Twitter. Listen below, let us know what you reckon.
