Bad Energy is an energetic track that blends together a haunting backing beat with a rap flow that builds off of the tradition of J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar. The nuanced wordplay here will have listeners repeating LINKS’s latest single to hear everything that had been contained in. The chorus is able to strike out in a bold new fashion while riffing on the main backing beat. Bad Energy allows the instrumental and vocal sides of LINKS to shine. Together, they are able to establish the single as something wholly different from what’s currently garnering air play while keeping reverent of the acts that immediately preceded them.
