Wale's single "Bad" was originally created by 23-year-old artist Tiara Thomas. The song became Thomas' calling card; it helped attract record label offers for the versatile artist.
Initially, it seemed like Wale was in the forefront to sign Thomas, but plans changed. According to MissInfo, Tiara inked a deal with Rico Love's record label Division 1 in partnership with Interscope.
On her issued version of "Bad," the record displays her skills as a rapper, singer and songwriter. She is reportedly in the process of prepping her debut EP.
