M.I.A.: “Bad Girls” (Switch Remix Feat. Missy Elliott and Rye Rye)
OOOOOOOOO-WEEEEEEE, Y’ALL! I’ve been waiting on this remix for months, and it lives up to the hype. Structured around Switch’s bang-worthy, whistle-heavy production, “Bad Girls (Remix)” is about as close to a sure-shot summer jam as one could get. Veteran Missy Elliott’s flow here is ridiculous, not to mention she’s got some pretty hilarious punchlines (“Get smashed like ham sandwiches”). Up-and-comer Rye Rye also comes through with a speedy delivery accompanied by that dainty inflection that only makes it seem faster. With “Bad Girls” already being one of the best songs of 2012, would it be fair to say that we could see its remix up there, too? Check out the track over at Soundcloud.
We’re still awaiting the other two remixes, though—one of which features Azealia Banks.
