Word on the street is that Wale is a little bitter that the young lady Tiara Thomas who sings on his hit single “Bad” decided not to sign a recording contract with him. Instead, Tiara decided to ink a deal with Rico Love’s Division 1 label.
Wale says that the two were friends and hung out for about 2 years before they even recorded the song together.
On how Wale lost Tiara to Rico Love:
I was a casualty of the game. That bit of reality just hit me but it’s all good shout out to Tiara Thomas and her new situation. I don’t want to go there- shout out to Tiara Thomas though. She’s a dope artist, she’s an incredible artist. ‘Bad’ is an incredible record, she wrote it. She got a situation they doing what they gone do with her”
Why He Didn’t Sign Her Initially:
Their situation met through [me] I was recording with the situation she’s in now and they met. It’s just the game though. My thing is I don’t believe in paperwork to soon cause I like to show and prove what I can do. And like, I ain’t want to scare nobody. Like yo ‘let’s make the music, let’s vibe.’ You live and learn so that’s why I’ll kick myself before I complain about somebody else. It’s the music business like a lot of people ain’t ya friend-friend forreal like that sometime. She got her situation and she’s happy.
His feelings about Tiara:
She did what she had to do. She did what she thought was in her best interest. And I guess that’s what all people do. So shout out to her and her situation.
