M.I.A., Matangi

M.I.A. stumbled with her last studio album, 2010's Maya, but she had some big moments in 2012 that showed she can still dominate a conversation: her ill-advised middle finger flash at the Super Bowl halftime show, and her eye-catching visual for "Bad Girls," one of the best videos of the year. If her new album, Matangi, can pack similar impact, she's in great shape.
