It’s early days yet but 2012 might already have its video of the year: M.I.A.’s long-awaited comeback single, “Bad Girls”. The Romain Gavras-directed clip (the same director who helmed her controversial exploding ginger-filled vid for ‘Born Free’) is a stunner. Shot over four days in the Moroccan desert, the video features female drag racers, hip hop-meets-hijab styling and the best car stunts this side of The Fast and the Furious. All of this over a slick, Arabic-infused beat by Danja and M.I.A.’s signature lyrical bravado: (“Live fast, die young / Bad girls do it well”). Once again, nobody does it as well as M.I.A..  Welcome back, girl. We missed you.
