NEW VIDEO: Wale ft. Tiara Thomas – Bad

In the ‘Bad’ video Wale has a love interest, who is played by Eddie Murphy’s daughter Bria, that doesn’t want to attach emotions to her sex sessions. She has more fun with her girls and occasionally having bathroom sex with a sex guy she just met. It seems as if she is trying to find herself in the mix of all her sexcapades that means nothing.

This is a situation I find that most females are in now. Its sad but true.

The video was well executed. Love it! OnPoint!
