Bad Thing

Album: Sound of a Woman (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This gritty track finds Kiesza singing about a guy she just can't keep her hands off, though she probably should. Joey Bada$$ jumps in for a verse in which he sympathizes with her predicament. "Deluded by these illusions," he raps "dancing with this little devil." Kiesza explained to MTV News that she and the rapper had great chemistry. "[Joey Bada$$] is really, really sweet and a very impressive writer. He writes so quickly," she said. "I was very impressed by him."

    A Brooklyn born and bred hip-hop rapper, Joey Bada$$' earliest rhymes were written in the first grade. He released his first mix tape 1999 in 2012 at the age of 18.
