’13 Best Singles #5: Wale x Tiara Thomas “Bad”

Written By: @TheBigHomie January 9, 2014 @ 2:00 PM EDT

Who’s Bad?

If you thought Wale couldn’t top “Lotus Flower Bomb”, think again. Over continuous bed squeaks, a guitar strum and guest Tiara Thomas, Mr. Folarin found himself in an emotional tug-of-war. And if that wasn’t enough, Folarin rehashed the beat and brought Rihanna’s raunchy edge for the remix. Now, what’s badder than that?—Big Homie

    All the usual suspects seem to be in your lists. If this wasn’t a industry run site it would have been shut down a long time ago.

    Well deserved, but it could have gone higher though.

  • Dashing28

    This was a good single. This album shoulda been on the underrated list. 3 big singles that all did pretty well “Bad” “LoveHate Thing” and “Clappers.” Not to mention the Cee Lo joint, “Heaven’s Afternoon” with Meek, 88 with Just Blaze. The album was #1 in the country when it came out, the bars were tight, the music was live-sounding, soulful without sounding dated.

    If Wale wasn’t so disliked people would’ve appreciated it more. It wasn’t top 10, but it was def underrated.

  • very nice song

  • draws

    anything with bed squeaking noises is a winner

  • Sam Robilotta

    this was good, until Riahnna came out with that version and blew this one out of the water!

    • TeF

      No Lie! That version is the ONLY version in my opinion. I’m sure Tiara knows that shit too.

    The 1st site that I have seen to give Wale any kind of props on their year end lists. I don’t know why the HipHop media hates dude but he has undeniable talent, fugg his attitude and just grade him on his work. #Salute
