Maybach Music Group artist Wale remixes his lead single "Bad" off his forthcoming third studio album "The Gifted" and it packs a punch by way of a superstar collaborator in Rihanna. The 28-year-old rapper dropped the new version of his infidelity-laced tune on Monday, June 3, just a day after his performance at the Hot 97 Summer Jam XX in New Jersey.
The four-minute remix features the bed springs squeak first heard on the original track that blends well with the synths in the background that lead to the rap exchange between Wale and RiRi. As the MC rhymes "Bad girls ain't no good and the good girls ain't no fun," the sexy siren answers back with "and the bad girls want a real n***a."
Rihanna, taking over from the original collaborator Tiara Thomas, takes off with the hook, making it sound more seductive than ever. After Wale thinks, "Monogamy or whatever you call it/ I'm starting to think it ain't for everybody" at the start of the song, RiRi complements the message with "can't promise that I'll be good to you / Cause I had some issues, I won't commit / No, not having it."
Apart from the "Bad" remix, the Board Administration artist has also released new single "Poor Decisions" featuring Lupe Fiasco and MMG boss Rick Ross. As for "Bad" original featured artist Thomas, she may not have been enlisted by Wale for the new version but they apparently have a new song coming out, entitled "Blow".
