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…
