In 2000, the Sri Lankan born, London bred Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam was encouraged, by electro-clash icon Peaches, to make music on a Roland MC-505 Groovebox. Maya pulled lyrics from journals she had written during a 4 month trip to the Caribbean island of St Vincent.
Now, as M.I.A. readies her fourth studio album, new track "Bad Girls" made its debut on Pitchfork.com January 30th and was released worldwide on January 31st.
Named one of the ten defining artists of the 2000's decade by Rolling Stone and one of the world's 100 most influential people by Time magazine, M.I.A. has been nominated for an Academy Award and two Grammys ("Paper Planes" and "Swagga Like Us").
