It’s official: Wale’s upcoming album “The Gifted” will include a remix of his hit “Bad” featuring Rihanna. The original version of “Bad,” which already peaked at #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, features vocals from talented singer-songwriter Tiara Thomas (who also wrote the hook). Tiara sounds amazing on “Bad,” but I guess Wale felt the song needed a little star power to really get going. After hearing the remix last week, Rolling Stone reported, “Rihanna ups original guest vocalist Tiara Thomas’ ante and proceeds to tear down the place.” Well, that sounds promising. Oh, and I guess Rih’s doing some rapping as well. Interesting, interesting.
