Must Hear: Cassie – ‘Addiction’

Published: Friday 12th Apr 2013 by David

As far as the critics go, Cassie has scored a winner with brand new mix tape ‘Rocka Bye baby’. 

Of course, while her vocal limitations will see her struggle to deliver its gems live, there’s no doubt this release has made the wait for her return well worth it.

Thematically deep enough to be taken seriously by the Hipsters but catchy enough to have the Pop fiends swooning, there’s a lot R&B’s leading ladies could learn from the project.

So, after giving it a few spins here, we decided to share one of our favorite songs from it with you guys today.

Get ‘Addicted’ below!

    Most of the beats on this mixtape sound the same. I can’t tell one from the other. Same goes for the vocal arrangements 🙁

      lol what vocals?

    • lexi April 12, 2013

      I agree, but I give respect to her for trying.

  2. IGGY GODZALEA April 12, 2013

    I Love It & Sound of Love>>>

  3. Mother Monster April 12, 2013

    Do people really classify her as a singer? Just sounds like shes talking into a Mic

    Damn b****, do you do anything besides talk? Give me a riff or something! I don’t see how people compare Jhene to her. They have similar tones, but jhene actually SINGS!

    • Neigh-Neigh Leakes April 12, 2013

      I don’t see the similarity in her & Jhene Aiko’s voice either.
      Maybe it’s because they use that baby voice to sing…in Cassie’s case, lack thereof.

      • I_HEART_U April 12, 2013

        Jhene is definitely a singer and a talented one at that. She also writes her own stuff. Much respect.

  5. Teflon Boy April 12, 2013

    She’s a blank canvass for production…, it’s like with fashion…, her voice over beats is no different from a bland curveless waif wearing a Cavalli dress lol

  6. VANNY April 12, 2013

    cassie might not have the best voice in the world… but she has a s*** ass voice.. its so sultry and seductive,

  7. Beyonce’sWigBrusher April 12, 2013

    This is cute for her and her 1/4 of an octave. Now Cassie girl, try singing this live. *Trina Giggle*

    This can’t be the same website that drags Rihanna for filth. This is boring. Cassie really just sucks man. It doesnt even have to do with the fact that she has no talent, she has NOTHING. No X-Factor no NOTHING! Shes just pretty. Thats it. At least Rihanna gives good music even if her voice isn’t great. My God Cassie is the absolute worst.She must have something VICIOUS in between her legs for Diddy to keep paying for failed project after failed project. Shes never gonna happen.

  9. Beyonce’sWigBrusher April 12, 2013

    This whole mixtape sounds like Rihanna hand me down track.

  10. I_HEART_U April 12, 2013

    I’m sorry but this contrived bad girl image screams RIHANNA. Cassie has no vocal talent. Not a lick. I wouldn’t even call her a singer, shes more like a rhythmic talker or something.

    • Teflon Boy April 12, 2013

      This comment actually made me spit my food back up lol

      ‘Rhythmic talker’ lol you almost make it sound like a skill. I have to agree though, Geri Halliwell of the SpiceGirls couldn’t ever sing but for someone so untalented at least she always had a certain ‘oomph’ about her…, Cassie just oozes walk-all-over-me ‘passive’, while generating ‘catalogue’ pretty *ANTMShade lol* I wish the girl well but no matter how edgy her people style her it cannot paint over the zero amount of charisma she emits. at this point she’s a well-funded WAG and nothing else.

    I also really love this track.The Bad b****** beat is mad crazy,ester dean killed it.The whole mixtape is good.After King of hearts,Numb and Paradise,she got critical acclaim,you can count her out this time.

    Congrats to her for her ASOS and Forever21 deals.She is hustling.

  12. MY NAIJA GIST April 12, 2013

    Nice song, I love this track.

  13. TheOuyonB April 12, 2013

    The mixtape is a solid release. She knows that she is not the greatest singer, however, she has definitely grown vocally. Although, she will never be Mariah Carey, she made efforts to improve the best she could.. and the songs on the mixtape fit accordingly with her vocal level and style. I was pleasantly surprised. And contrary to TGJ’s above commentary, I don’t think she should have any problem delivering these songs live… The vocals are simple and clean and Im certain she will do fine. I would classify her new style as more of “swag singing”.

  14. Hellioss April 12, 2013

    Some Dream’s vibes at the end of the song with the rap part. Interesting track.

  15. Gstar April 13, 2013

    Her mixtape is actually decent, this song, All My Love & Rocka Bye Baby are good tracks! All the best Cassie
