“Bad Girls” made a lot of buzz when it came out with a super swag, boss ladies in burqas and Saudi Arabians drifters. This time M.I.A. takes us behind the scenes of the videos showing how it was shot and the drifting culture of Saudi Arabia. Check it out below, it is super dope!
Bad a$$ M.I.A. brought the Middle Eastern #SWAG to us. This is the best video since “Otis” so far, at least for me. With boss chicks covered in burqa and desert drifting..all I can say is FRESH!
“It was dope to have so many people from so many different backgrounds speaking so many different languages come together to create something that we believed in,” said M.I.A. “I thought I was gonna die on the shoot when I saw the drifting. 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.”
