MIA has confirmed that she will be performing with Madonna and Nicki Minaj at the halftime show at the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis on February 5.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on his BBC Radio 1 show this evening (January 30), the UK rapper and singer said: "Yes, I'm going to the Super Bowl… I'm gonna be performing with Madonna and Nicki Minaj... If you're gonna go to the Super Bowl, you might as well go with America's biggest female icons."

MIA and Minaj both feature on Madonna's forthcoming single, 'Give Me All Your Luvin'', which is set for release on February 3. It's the first single to be taken from Madonna's forthcoming album, 'MDNA', which is out on March 26 through Interscope Records.

During the interview, MIA also spoke about her next solo album, saying that she is working on it with "European producers" and that she wants it to be released in the summer. "I want it to be a summer thing", she said, "because it's a summer record."

MIA's brand new single 'Bad Girls' debuted on BBC Radio 1 today (January 30). It was recorded in Miami with producer Danja, who has also worked with the likes of Madonna and Nelly Furtado. The song's video will be released on February 3.

'Bad Girls' is the first track to be taken from the singer's as yet untitled fourth album. It is MIA's first album for new label Mercury Records after she left XL Recordings at the completion of her contract. MIA's fourth album, which is the follow-up to her 2010 record 'Maya', is rumoured to feature contributions from Swizz Beatz, Cataracs and Chris Brown.
