Bad (Remix)

Wale does “Bad” with some help from the original bad girl, Rihanna, on the remix to his hit single. The pop star cries out on the sultry, yet sad hook, and even throws down some rhymes.

“Bad girls want a real ni**a,” she declares, while Wale raps, “All the bad girls always end up unapologetic.”

The original song features singer-songwriter Tiara Thomas, who just inked a deal with Rico Love’s Division1/Interscope Records.

In addition to RiRi and Tiara, Wale’s third album The Gifted (due June 25) features Nicki Minaj, CeeLo Green, 2 Chainz, and Jerry Seinfeld.

Iggy Azalea Hints at Rihanna Collaboration ‘Designer Drugs’

Iggy Azalea has a few collaborations in the works for her upcoming debut The New Classic including one with a global pop superstar. During her interview with Rap-Up TV, the “Work” rapper hinted that she has a track with Rihanna’s name written all over it.

“Hopefully I would be able to make that stick ’cause I would love to have her sing on my album. Who wouldn’t?” she said of RiRi, who is also signed to Island Def Jam.

She shared more details about the seductive song called “Designer Drugs.” “I actually sung the hook and then I thought, ‘I can think of someone who would sing this better,’” said Iggy. “It sounds like if someone was playing an acoustic guitar, but then you went out into a tepee in the middle of the desert and got really drunk and started hallucinating. It’s a bit warped, but strangely acoustic. I sound like a bit of a phone sex operator on it.”

While Rihanna may not be 100% confirmed, T.I. is. The Hustle Gang chief is set to appear on Iggy’s third single “Change Your Life.”
