If you’ve been vibing out to Wale’s “Bad” featuring Tiara Thomas lately, take a listen to the original solo version by the Indiana singer/songwriter/guitarist. The moody tune addresses emotional emptiness that often leads to broken hearts and beds.
When talking about Wales version that’s rising on the charts, Thomas told Billboard, “It’s like a girl anthem and that’s what I like so much about it. You wouldn’t think that he would do that—a rapper puts out a girl anthem. But it’s true and it’s real. I think that’s why people connect with it.”
Thomas is readying her debut project titled Sallie Mae for later this year.
