Over the past few weeks, “Bad” has been steadily moving up the charts, and thanks to Tiara’s melodic vocals, she has made the song a hit girl anthem. 

Wale’s female protégé decided to release her version of “Bad” before Wale added his talents on the track.

When asked about Wale wanting to release a “girl anthem,” Tiara responded:

“You wouldn’t think that he would do that—a rapper puts out a girl anthem. But it’s true and it’s real. I think that’s why people connect with it.”

Tiara’s currently working on her forthcoming project, Sallie Mae, which is due out later on this year.
