Proving that bad girls really do do it well, M.I.A. just shared an awesome remix of Beyonce's hit, "Flawless." It's called "Baddygirl 2" and contains a sample of Bey's 2008 hit, "Diva." The track sounds like classic M.I.A. and has the "Paper Planes" singer-rapper reworking the lines, singing, "I woke up like this / I went to bed like this / We do everything just like this."

The singer originally teased the remix on Instagram, posting a video of a child dancing to the banger. Apparently the remix was delayed by waiting for approval from Bey, so she tweeted the track with, "Beyonce camp has not replied for months > SO HERE >"

The song stays true to Beyonce's feminist anthem. M.I.A. opens the track with, "All those b-tches say hey / What's up it's M.I.A. / It's for the women and of course, Beyonce."
