This Is Our Jam: M.I.A. (Featuring Missy Elliot & Rye Rye), “Bad Girls (Switch Remix)”

While the original version of “Bad Girls” may be one of the biggest bangers of 2012 (or 2011, for that matter), there’s no better way to get more mileage out of a track than by adding Missy Elliott to the mix. It’s been a while since the venerable MC's been active, but Switch (of Major Lazer fame) reworks "Bad Girls" as a chopped-up dancehall jam with a twitchy beat that's perfect for the rapper we know and love. M.I.A. protege Rye Rye also shows up for some tongue-twisting antics, and, perhaps as an ode to Timbaland, Switch throws a squalling baby sample on the track for good measure.
As a bonus, check out another new version of the track here, this one by N.A.R.S., featuring the same Missy verse and a new guest spot from New York up-and-comer Azealia Banks.
