Wale Releases Rihanna-Assisted 'Bad' Remix: Listen
The rapper also debuts Maybach Music Group single 'Poor Decisions' featuring Rick Ross and Lupe FIasco.
Wale releases the full-version of the Rihanna-assisted remix to "Bad" just three days after teasing 90 seconds of it on Sway in the Morning.
Wale and Rih Rih play off one another on the remix and voice their inner turmoil involving the opposite sex. "I’ll be your bad girl, I’ll prove it to you / Can’t promise that I’ll be good to you, cause I have some issues/ I won't commit, not having it/ But atleast I can admit that I'll be bad to you/ I'll be good in bed but I'll be bad to you," Rihanna sings (also later raps) in response to Wale’s laments about a difficult relationship and praises of hot sex on the "bed, floor, couch, more."
The DJ Foreigner-produced single will be featured on Wale’s upcoming sophomore album, "The Gifted," dropping June 25. Aside from Rihanna, other guest appearances on "Gifted" include Meek Mill, Yo Gotti, Lyfe Jennings, Cee-Lo Green, Nicki Minaj, Juicy J, Ne-Yo, Rick Ross and more.
The remix is one of two new songs Wale released today (June 3). The rapper also released, "Poor Decisions," featuring Lupe Fiasco and Rick Ross, via VIBE. "Rich ni--as making poor decisions," Rick Ross kicks off the Jake Uno produced song.
As ironic as it is for Rick Ross to spit a verse as such after losing his partnership with Reebok for a controversial featured verse, the rest of the rapper's verse isn't about that situation.
"Poor decision making pledging ni--as lives/ You're selling crack upon your mama's porch/ While she still going through a new divorce/ He has a thrill as he raise his voice/ When he really need to raise his boys," Rozay raps, before Lupe Fiasco and Wale come in.
"Poor Decisions" is featured on MMG's upcoming "Self Made Vol. 3" compilation album, out August 3.
