Cassie Talks New Album

Published: Sunday 2nd Dec 2007 by Sam
‘Me & U’ singer Cassie recently sat down with the team over at AllHipHop.com to discuss her forthcoming sophomore album. As well as revealing that she is working with hit-makers Brian Michael-Cox, Danja and Kanye West, she had the following to say of the new CD:

AHHA: Let’s get into the new album. What do you want people to feel once they have heard it?

Cassie: It’s a more vulnerable album; it’s a little bit stripped down as far as vocally and the content in the songs. Like I did a song last night called “That’s Not What Love Is” and it’s about a very, very real situation that a lot of people can relate to. It has a lot of emotion behind it. I really hope people get it and they see me in a different light – without the makeup, the hair and the clothes…just me, by myself. My album artwork is going to be really intimate. I want people to see me, how my boyfriend would, if I had a boyfriend that is. The way the music is coming together; I sound like I feel it.

Cassie seems like a nice girl, but it’s things like this that annoy me slightly. “It’s a little bit stripped down as far as vocally…” I didn’t think her voice could be any more stripped down than it was on her last album. Will she literally be talking her way through the tracks this time? SMH…

Your thoughts?

    Haha! I sorta agree with you there. But I think what she meant by “stripped down vocally” is that her voice will probably sound more raw than synthesized. It will actually sound like she’s singing… here’s hoping! lol

    I do think she’s a hottie, but looks won’t get you very far for very long. If she doesn’t start showing some raw talent and depth in her music, people WILL get bored of her…

    Nah i love Cassie. She’s not the best singer in the world but her last 2 singles were fresh and new plus a couple of songs from her album. She does have a singing voice though, some people like to call artists crap singers and that they can’t sing, and it’s so untrue because it’s like saying just anybody could sing it, and songs like “is it u?” or “miss ur touch” are pretty hard to sing along with without any talent! Plus she amazing hot!

    Well with that being said, I firmly believe anybody can sing… it’s just a matter of whether you can sing good or not.

    Honestly Cassies voice is not that good but its the fact that she truly makes every song she sings amazing. I like the tone of her voice in certain songs. For example “Official Girl”. Karina Pasian did her own version of it and has the stronger voice over Cassie. Yet, Cassies soft voice goes better with the song. I would not want to hear anyone else singing it.
