Rihanna vs. Tiara Thomas: Who is better at being ‘Bad’?


Music’s favorite bad girl, Rihanna, recently teamed up with Wale to lay vocals on a remix for his hit “Bad.” The song delves into the notion of being strongly attracted to someone who is obviously bad for you.

Rihanna and Wale trade bars with each other in the first verse. “Bad girls ain’t no good, and the good girls ain’t no fun,” Wale raps before Rihanna breaks in and says, “And the bad girls want a real n—a.”

Rihanna’s presence will indeed add life to the single that has climbed the charts since its release.

On the same day the remix was released, Tiara Thomas, the original singer and writer of “Bad,” was signed to Interscope Records under Rico Love’s Division 1 imprint.

But before Tiara caught Wale’s attention, she released her version of “Bad” which is an entire song.
