As many await her sophomore album, it’s become increasingly apparent that Cassie is- and maybe always has been- an aspiring supermodel who just happened to walk into a recording contract…with no real intentions of pursuing a career in music.
However, as true as that may be, that doesn’t stop the world from being interested in both she and her endeavours. Once of which, saw her travel to Miami over the summer for a brief getaway!
Want to see what she got up to?
Fun in the sun below!

Christopher LaTouche and JayOhh put their creative skills to work for Cassie Ventura this time around, directing the video for her ‘RockaByeBaby‘ lifted number, ‘I Know What You Want’.
Lacking the choreography the clip need to truly pop, the video does make for an interesting watch but only by way of Cassie‘s aesthetic and aesthetic alone, void of the ‘wow factor’ her photo shoots (see ‘Blank’ spread) often possess.

Much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past. So in a quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday we introduced a new retrospective segment – ‘TGJ Replay’.
Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase albums (and eras) from a library of pop music hits. Finally, we go back to Next Selection/Bad Boy beauty Cassie‘s eponymous debut…

Back in April, our pals over at She Is Diva reported Cassie‘s lucrative new deal as the face of ‘Forever LA’, as seen here!
Now, as she continues to reap the critical awards afforded it to her by ‘Rockabyebaby’, behind the scenes footage from her shoot with the fashion brand filmed in Venice Beach months ago, showcasing some of the collection’s range and the best of Cassie, the model.

After spending the last seven years watching her rivals ascend to new career levels, 2013 saw Cassie Ventura return to the music with the so so sounding mix tape ‘Rockabyebye‘.
Accommodating her restraints as a vocalist while ticking the ‘Understated Urban’ box, her return also saw her meet comparisons to former B2K affiliate Jhene Aiko, another purveyor of moody R&B.
Watch as she dishes on these comparisons, her forthcoming album and her well loved ‘Paradise’ with Power 106 LA below!

That may not seem like a long time on paper, but in ‘industry theory’…it’s a lifetime.
From the unexpected rise of Rihanna to the ground breaking arrival of Lady GaGa, the last seven years have seen Cassie watch acts she once considered contemporaries (or had never heard of) become music juggernauts…while her brand watched from the sidelines.
So, why has it taken so long for her return to music?
Her interesting explanation below…
