You guys already know what I think of M.I.A.‘s new Danja produced single Bad Girls, but the official music video takes it to a whole new level.
We knew that the cinematic genius Romain Gavras was in charge of the visuals (who was responsible for this masterpiece amongst others), so it wasn’t unfair to expect big things. Shot by the man himself in Ouarzazate, Morocco, the video taps in to the trend of performing wild dangerous car stunts that many of you will have seen in videos shot in eastern hemisphere countries.
M.I.A. had this to say about shooting the video:
â€œIt was dope to Â have so many people from so many different backgrounds speaking so many different languages come together to create something that we believed in.â€
â€œI thought I was gonna die on the shoot when I saw the drifting. Â 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.â€
