MIA has shared a remix of Beyonce song 'Flawless.' Scroll down to listen now.

The track was put online yesterday (May 13) and also features a sample of Beyoncé's 2008 song 'Diva'. The original version of 'Flawless' appears on Beyoncé's surprise self-titled 2013 album and includes a spoken word verse from Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Tweeting about the song, which she calls 'Baddygirl 2', prior to its release, MIA suggested that the remix was officially commissioned but that she was unable to speak to people in Beyoncé's camp so decided to leak the track instead.


Earlier this year MIA asked Madonna for financial help after the NFL demanded she pay them $16.6m (£9.1m) in compensation for showing her middle finger during the 2012 Super Bowl half-time show.

The NFL claims that the additional $15m covers "the alleged value of public exposure she received by appearing for an approximately two minute segment during Madonna's performance". In response, MIA's spokesperson has said that the claim, "lacks any basis in law, fact, or logic".

MIA will perform at Lovebox Festival in London this July. She appears on a bill which also includes Nas, The Horrors, Katy B, A$AP Rocky and Chase & Status.
