Tiara Thomas Strips Things Back In Acoustic Track "How It Is"

You may best recognize 25-year-old artist Tiara Thomas from her soothing vocals on Wale’s hit single “Bad” from 2013 but be advised that her talents span way beyond that one dimension.  Letting her raw voice and emotions stand alone over a drawn back acoustic accompaniment, Thomas opens up in what she explains as “a conversation with myself in my head” to MTV News in “How It Is.”  This will serve as a featured song on Thomas’ forthcoming 5-track project “Up In Smoke.”  Listen to the brand new track below and check out Tiara Thomas’ live acoustic performance of “Bad” on Sway In The Morning.
