Wale's "Bad" has been the biggest song on rap and R&B radio this year, but it was originally an obscure song by a singer named Tiara Thomas. But, as these things tend to go, there's nothing obscure about its remix, which features a fantastically sultry vocal turn from Rihanna. The song is a particularly good fit for her, as she continues to cultivate a rebellious persona — look, it's right there in her Instagram handle.

The D.C. rapper's new album The Gifted is out June 25. It sports features from Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Juicy J, Meek Mill, and Ne-Yo. Oh, and Jerry Seinfeld.
