Bad

Album: Skins (2018)
Charted: 23 16
  • When Michael Jackson told the world that he's "Bad" it introduced to the masses the way teenagers were using the word in an inverted sense to mean "seriously cool." Thirty years later it's still a hip way of talking, especially to describe a sexy girl who looks seriously good. Here, XXXTENTACION is calling out a girl and complimenting her looks.

    Shawty heard you bad, word, so profane
    Something like a bad word, want your love
    Call me when you can, girl, goin' up, goin' down
    In and out, turn around


    X is also using "Bad" in its traditional sense on this lusty song. By suggesting she's "something like a bad word" it seems she lives a coarse lifestyle.
  • Originally teased in footage posted to XXXTentacion's Instagram timeline, this single, which runs 1:34, was released as the lead single from X's first posthumous album Skins.
