Published Jun 03, 2013If you've ogled the tracklist to Wale's upcoming LP The Gifted, you've likely noticed that the DC rapper is serving up two separate versions of his single, "Bad." We've already heard the original version, featuring Tiara Thomas on the hook, but now Wale has let loose the Rihanna-equipped remix.
The song still delivers bump-and-grind bedspring squeaks on the beat, but spacious synths and snaps have been brought in to replace the original's acoustic guitar melody. Wale's first verse initially starts up the same, but he and RiRi quickly get into a playfully rapped back-and-forth about bedroom kings and queens.
You can check out their team-up down below.
As previously reported, The Gifted drops June 25 through Maybach Music Group and also features guest appearances from Meek Mill, Cee Lo, Nicki Minaj and Jerry Seinfeld.
