Venus vs. Mars: Beyoncé vs. Cassie

Beyoncé and Cassie

A version of Jay-Z’s “Venus vs. Mars” surfaced last week featuring vocals from Cassie. But when the album version leaked this week, the Bad Girl had been replaced by Mrs. Carter on the hook. To make matters more confusing, only Cassie is credited in The Blueprint 3 liner notes, seen below.

This is not the first time Cassie has appeared on a Jay-Z record. She can also be heard on “Roc Boys (And the Winner Is…).” Listen to both ladies’ versions of “Venus vs. Mars” after the cut.

    As much as I dig Queen B, Cassie killed it, it’s smoother with Cassie voice, its actually sexier & attractive!

  24. sexiikiim09

    As much as I despise Beyonce, people give her so much damn credit for stuff she aint done, but hers is totally better. Cassie, as much as I don’t want to say it, needs a bigger voice so she can yell & go hard, instead she sounds like a sweet baby coo, but that’s not what the track was going for, so Beyonce’s version was better. People need to get off d1ck though, lol.

    [Reply]

  25. joey

    im a die hard b fan, and i think everything she does is great. but i just think cassies is better, its just more mellow. beys going to hard on it when the track is pretty chill. both are good though

    [Reply]

  26. Julez

    as much as i like beyonce, cassies voice sounds WAY better on this track. her voice flows well with the track and beyonce just sounds retarded.

    [Reply]

  27. Matt

    Is there a link to the audio or another YouTube video (of Beyonce)? Warner removed Beyonce’s version and I really want to hear it

    [Reply]

  28. Jay

    Beyonce is dope on the track, but I think Cassie fits the song better.

    Cassie’s version sounds a lil more smooth. Simple is better in this case…that type of hook doesn’t really need much.

  38. Turboteen101

    Honestly I agree with most of the ppl on here because to me they both sound mad hot on the record. I wouldn’t mind listening to both of the versions. Cassie is smooth with hers and flow with the music but her words are shallow and B she goin hard with the verse plus venus. vs. mars is about a man and a woman and i think J and B is right for the track. So both verses is hot.

  50. TheTruth.

    “The other girl tried but failed”?? wtf, andre you need to recognise, Beyonce is wayy more successful than Cassie so if anyone is being labelled ‘the other chick’, Cassie is the one to be labelled that, ok. come better than that.

  51. Roya

    HANDS DOWN CASSIE! JUDGE BY THE FLOW OVER THE BEAT AND STYLE….NOT POPULARITY. THIS IS NOT A POPULARITY CONTEST BUT RATHER WHO FLOWS OVER THE TRACK THE NICEST. I LOVE BEY ALL THE WAY….TRUST. BUT I GOTTA SAY, I CAN PLAY THE VERSION WITH CASSIE ALL DAMN DAY AND NOT GET SICK OF IT. CASSIE IS MORE SEXY AND SEDUCTIVE WHERE BEY IS MORE LIKE I’M REPPIN MY MAN AND WHAT, WHICH IS COOL BUT CASSIE GOT SEX APPEAL ON THIS SONG AND IS REPPIN FOR THE LADIES HARD. I WISH THE BEST TO BOTH LADIES AND THEIR CAREERS. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEYONCE AND MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU EACH AND EVERYDAY!

  52. QueenBMiniMe

    Umm….Cassie’s version was weak as shit. He still shouldn’t have used beyonce though. oh well

    [Reply]

  53. TicToc

    This song is horrible, no matter what chick is on it.

    I just heard the future of hip hop today, dude named Prote-J. He’s Drake on the mic, Ryan Leslie on the beats, and Ne-Yo with the songwriting. Crazy

  55. Big D

    Sorry Cassie sounds way better it’s smooth and sexy! B sounds like she’s trying to hard!

    [Reply]

  56. eric

    Cassie sounds smoother, but B has swag. Cassie makes the song something to grove with, while B makes it something to get into. That being said I actually like both of versions. I’m cool with Cassie and her part, but B has too much presence to just do that one thing, she needs her own verse or something. When I first heard her on the track I was like okay, hopefully she got a verse or something so we can hear more of her. If B’s gonna be on it she needs a verse or something. Cassie is fine because I think that she has a voice that’s perfect for a hook. I like both version either way though

  58. kay

    Bee all the way ! shit there is no way U can ask people to choose between Cassie half blad hawt mess talentless and Queen Beyoncé !

    [Reply]

  59. !LOL!

    Are you for realz? For a simple line of “daddy go hard.” LOL, majorly. I guess Beyonce’s better, she sounds rough like she can handle her “daddy” cassie’s soft so she’s the “side-chick” not the main bitch to be calling the shots. & “Electro Love coming soon?” lol, I remember people saying that like when Official Hurl came out. In that video she looked like Ciara from her Goodies days (1 2 step to be sure). Now she be jacking Rihanna, she can’t even decide a “look,” SHE’LL FAIL MISERABLY!

    Beyonce can go back to screaming, acting, designing, and whatever else she thinks shes good at.
