Following Z.TAO and Luhan, Kris Wu has released a song called Bad Girl.

So I was curious to see how TAO fit it because SM Entertainment marketed him as a rapper.
I definitely didn’t expect 2 out of 3 tracks to be singing. I actually figured the ratio would have been the other way around.
As mentioned, my expectations were high because I was interested in knowing what TAO could do and…
