As far as rap videos go, the visuals for the new MIA ‘Bad Girls’ video are both fresh and cliche at the same time. While she travels away from the comforts of a studio set and into the Middle-Eastern deserts, the controversial rap star packs the video with all of the conventional themes of a rap video and sticks them in a different location. M.I.A’s fascination with the Middle East has been a common theme in both her beats and her videos to date, and this action-packed video combines her love of hip-hop, dance, alternative and world music.
The excitement in the video lies in the Saudi Drifting storyline. Drifting is a popular activity for the region’s thrill-seekers, and M.I.A does an amazing job at showcasing the competitive sport.
