M.I.A. had a pretty chill 2011, but her 2012 is already starting to look sufficiently bonkers.
Not only is the artist formerly known as Maya slated to be joining Madonna and Nicki Minaj at this Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show, but she and her co-conspirators will also see their collaboration track “Gimme All Your Luvin” premiere on American Idol this Thursday. That single, MDNA‘s first, will be properly released Friday.
But first, M.I.A. has her own single to debut. “Bad Girls” hits the streets tomorrow, but the song — reworked from her late-2010 mixtape Vicki Leekx — is streaming now. Plus, this Friday she’ll unveil the new single’s video, courtesy of the director behind her controversial “Born Free” video.
In other words: there’s going to be a lot of M.I.A. on your internets this week! Consider yourself warned.
