Snoh Aalegra – Bad Things Feat. Common

Snoh Aalegra – Bad Things Feat. Common. We haven’t heard from rising Swedish songstress Snoh Aalegra since earlier this year when she dropped the sultry single “Burning Bridges.” Keeping the flame lit, however, last week she returned with a smoldering ballad appropriately titled, “Fire’s All Around You” coming as the first single off her upcoming debut EP produced entirely by No I.D. Showcasing her impressive vocal range over a simple orchestral production, Snoh switches the tempo to channel a hip-hop soul melody on her very latest track “Bad Things.”

After lending her vocals to Common‘s Nobody’s Smiling LP, the Chicago-rapper returns the favor with a heavy conscious verse to match the songbird’s smoky yet sinister lyrics. Setting up a double-entendre hook, she sings, “I do bad things to good versions of me/ I find good things in bad versions of me …. I don’t know it’s just versions of me baby.” Another gem from the Snoh/I.D. collective.

After releasing her new song, “Fire’s All Around You”, singer/songwriter Snoh Aalegra returns this week with a new No I.D. produced track titled, “Bad Things” which features the “Kingdom” artist himself Common.

Snoh Aalegra – Bad Things Feat. Common Lyrics:
I do BAD THINGS to good versions of me
I find good things in BAD VERSIONS of me
I don’t know, it’s just versions of me, babe!

I’m in a nightmare having a dream
I got a question, am I who I seem?!
I’m at the matrix from battlin’ me
I’m just an old black shadow in me?!

Something undefined has now taken over me
Who am I to fight me for my own soul?!
I’m saying Yes to things that usually are No for me
I kissed a neon light and let it have control

I do BAD THINGS to good versions of me
I find good things in BAD VERSIONS of me
I don’t know, it’s just versions of me, babe!

Why do I feel so free when I’m killing me?
I’m fallin’ through the sky, caught between all the lies
I’m in a nightmare having a dream
I got a question, am I who I seem?!
I’m at the matrix from battlin’ me
I’m just an old black shadow in me?!

I get so sad at myself,
When I love what’s bad for my health
I wanna do a right and I would
But wrong tastes and feels so good!

[Common: ]
Plea to dust these feelin’s is hard to touch
Puff enough stuff, sometimes life is rough
On the cusp of doin’ right, who I’m foolin’ right?
A child of the light goin’ wild for the night
‘Cause most the fights I have, yo I have with myself
A good doer, I can do bad by myself
The sad that I felt that I could never be
With nobody, girl you know my G
O.D. on the good life, I’m a man, it’s simple
Probably the things I been through went the evil that meant to
I want my cake and eat it, heartbreak they take and leave it
The same song I’m being featured, I can’t delete it
The good you can see it, but you really get bad girl
Livin’ in a mad world, sometimes you want that girl
You ain’t been Madonna through the drama if it’s comin’ back it’s karma
A queen is made to honor.

I do BAD THINGS to good versions of me
I find good things in BAD VERSIONS of me
I don’t know, it’s just versions of me, babe!

I get so sad at myself,
When I love what’s bad for my health
I wanna do a right and I would
But now wrong tastes and feels so good!
It’s so good!
It’s just, it’s just, it’s just versions of me
It’s just versions of me
It’s just versions of me, babe!
