New Music: Eve – ‘She Bad Bad’ [Snippet]

She Bad Bad

A black leather bra and skintight pants; Eve is leaving very little to the imagination on the cover of her comeback single “She Bad Bad.” The rapper-actress looks down pensively in the photo—her signature paw print chest tattoos in full view. She has been teasing fans with lyrics on Twitter.

“Lips and eyes staring at ‘em/ Mesmerized, gotta have it,” she raps. “When they see me coming at ‘em/ Heels and hips they wanna grab ‘em.”

This summer, the 33-year-old Philly MC turned things up at the Rock the Bells Festival and ESSENCE Music Festival in New Orleans. Though she’s been laying low for over a decade, she’s finally ready to release her long-awaited fourth album Lip Lock.

“I wanted to really take what people loved of me and fell in love with in the beginning, with the Ruff Ryders and all of them, and combine it with where I am now,” she told TIME.

E-V-E has also collaborated with Missy Elliott and Lil’ Kim on a “fun, party record” for Missy’s upcoming album.

UPDATE: Listen to a 30-second snippet of “She Bad Bad” below. The song, produced by JukeBox (“Whip My Hair”), will be released to digital retailers tomorrow via Blondie Rockwell, Inc.

    @@iJustoriginate, I can wait for the female rappers to make their grand entrance. I luv me some EVE, MISSY and KIM. I’m talking strictly their TALENT. I care nothing about Nicki being hot now or what she’s selling. Her music is for kids and her GIMMICKS are played out. No one can deny Kim Eve Missy never switched up real lyrical hip hop talent.

AND WHY ARE PEOPLE EVEN INSECURE ANYWAY. YA’LL ARE ACTING LIKE YOU’RE ACTAULLY THE ARTIST LOOOOOOOOOOOL. AT THE END OF THE DAY NOT ONE POST ON A FEMALE RAPPER WILL SOMEONE NOT MENTION NICKI’S NAME. SO, SHE MUST BE FUCKING WINNING. WORD

    Tariq Reply:

    @wait, what’s funny is for the past 3 to 4 years Nicki has been throwing shots at her female rap peers so dont even start playing the VICTIM game. Yall know how competitive hip hop is and if ANYBODY should be able to bussing shots its a Nicki fan. Eve didnt mention Nicki’s name so why ASSUME anything. Like I said before stop being insecure and being petty its enough room for all these female rappers to get to the money. Stop the childish crap and lets support MUSIC for once. DAMN!

    @Stacey, Hmmmm. Eve’s been saying “Lip Lock” was coming ever since 2007, and Missy didn’t release her 2 singles on time as well.

    Trust me, Kim has been in the studio cooking up some good stuff for the fans. She’s coming… Just wait and see.

    Kim, Missy, and Eve are the only female rappers who can save “female rap” anyway.

    she bad bad???

    come on now. i love eve but can female rappers find other ways to define themselves than define themselves as bad bitches?

    [Reply]

    Stacey Reply:

    @me, The title of this song is NOT called BAD BITCH tho? What are u talking about? Delusion at its finest…. but oh when a man says he’s bad he gets applauded… Example Michael Jackson… Double standard much… Stop the shinanigans.

    [Reply]

    randy Reply:

    @Stacey, lol michael jackson meant bad literally. and when he did it he was the first. this is the most played out catchphrase on the fucking planet now. literally every female rappers has a song talking about how they are a bad bitch and the title is some cheap variation of that. this is just uncreative, uninspired, and generic. i agree with me.

    I’m so glad that a real female rapper is getting ready to hit the charts again.. I would not call u ol’skool… I like to see u as classic.. Can’t wait for you to shut the game down… I know i still bump your earlier albums.. E-V-E!!!!!!!!!

    No shade to EVE. I like her, but i feel some people are running out of things to say in their music, the lyrics in this snippet are nothing i haven’t heard before :/
    Even in Missy’s new song, they’re all now just talking about how they’re the shit and others aren’t, they need to start making songs that stand out again

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeees Eve!!! I’m a fan of Nicki, but this post IS NOT about her. Keep it somewhere else. She’s not the only female who can rap y’all! There is more than enough room for other women in the game! Stop the foolery frfr. Back to this, I’m so excited for her! Eve has always been one of my favorites for the same reason I like Nicki (sometimes). She raps with a venom behind her words that makes you pay attention to what she’s saying. Gon’ head Eve, YOU BAD BAD!!!
