Kiesza - "Bad Thing"

It’s a bit weird to hear the young New York rap traditionalist Joey Bada$$ jump on a track with a rising dance-pop singer. But then DJ Premier did produce a bunch of songs for Christina Aguilera, so maybe it’s on-brand. And anyway, “Bad Thing,” the new single from Canadian singer Kiesza, doesn’t sound anything like her breakout track “Hideaway.” Instead, it lurches and twinkles, a bass-pop approximation of that old boom-bap sound. Bada$$ and Kiesza also show more chemistry on the track than you might expect. Listen below.

Kiesza’s debut album Sound Of A Woman is out 10/21 on Island.
