New Music: Cassie f/ Fabolous – ‘Radio’

Cassie

Next time you hear a song on the radio, it may just be about you. Cassie learns a lesson from the likes of Mary J. Blige, Destiny’s Child, SWV, and TLC on a new song off the Diddy and DJ Prostyle-hosted mixtape Bad Boy Presents The Preview, also featuring music from Machine Gun Kelly and Red Cafe.

Following a verse from Fabolous, the Bad Girl coos over the instrumental for Mobb Deep’s “Shook Ones Pt. II,” recalling R&B jams that played out in real life. So she wrote her own song sharing her experiences and hopes it resonates with someone else.

“Who knew that they were trying to tell me about you and the crazy things you do?/ How could you be so cruel?” she asks on the mellow tune.

At the end of the mixtape, Diddy announced that “King of Hearts” will be the first single off Cassie’s sophomore album, due in 2012.

    WTF?????? Does the music industry have a shortage of singers? Cassis is a beautiful women, but this b!tch CAN NOT F’N SING! My dog can sing circles around this non-singer. But on a good note Fabolous was good.

    @Andre, I think she sounds alright on this track, but live she really can’t sing. That’s not hating, it’s just stating the truth. Cassie is extremely beautiful, in my eyes flawless. But vocally there are so many talented, beautiful, young women that deserve her spot.

    As for the song, I love the concept. Very creative. Sounds dope. :-)

    [Reply]

    Andre Reply:

    @Lisa, I agree except for the part that others deserve her spot, she’s working for it plus like I said she has a different style and she’s unique in the current industry imo.

    As for the live singing we’ll have to wait to see if she’s improved or not.

    @maya, LOL another dumb music “fan”. Not everyone needs to scream like those two you mentioned to be a good singer and have great songs so u also need to sit down. The ignorance here is killing me.

    @Andre, It’s true that not everybody has to “scream” but even cassie’s “mellowness” sucks! It just sounds so bland. This is why i know the production will be amazing…to drown out that voice.

    Huh?! Reply:

    @Why Ask, Well Rihanna can’t sing, all she has are looks and song writers writing her music for her and look how far she has come. So why can’t Cassie? She is still young and has her looks why can’t see capitalize off of it too?

    @Huh?!, “So why can’t Cassie?” So we should just continue letting non-talented singers in the industry while there are millions of other ladies with a beautiful gift dying to have a dream as an artist? NO!

    What’s funny is if Mary J Blige or a singer with some actual vocals had their hand on this track they would have KILLED IT!

    As for Cassie she really needs to sit! These vocals are not Tea! No emotion no soul in that “voice,” a word that should be used loosely when describing Cassie.

    [Reply]

    tea Reply:

    @IAmWhoIam, To be honest, I don’t think Mary J or Beyonce or other powerhouse vocalist would actually sound as good on these tracks, theyre pretty specific.
    Imagine Beyonce signing “Me & U”, it just wudnt be the same and u know it :)

    Lisa Reply:

    @tea, I agree with you. Cassie’s songs are very subtle and sultry. Mary J. Blige and Beyoncé would come on too strong…

    This is what u call an instant HIT. Cassie doesnt have the greatest vocals but her voice is so unique its very soothing and enjoyable. And that Fabolous verse definately brings this song up 10 notches. I can see this getting a lot of play on urban radio stations

    THESE SONG WOULD BE PERFECT FOR JENNIFER LOPEZ.

    The true queen of Bad Boy!!!

    Cassie is too boring. Diddy should get them to J-Lo and they can make magic together.

    I am sorry for Cassie. She is just so boring and her music is great. But the combination doesn’t work. Jennifer Lopez would rock this style.

    It is like ‘If u had my love’ 2011!!

    Cassie should retire soon and give these songs to the queen of Latin Soul!!!!

    She’s two flat notes from being Lumidee. Rihanna sounds better than her live. You can hear her STRETCHING for the notes. Twelve-year olds with no training in their mirror can mimic the same talk sing. Beautiful? Yes. Fuckable? Clearly. Artistic prowess? None. The concept is nice though.

    [Reply]

    From Tokyo Reply:

    @LT, I’m sure she’d swell with pride knowing she was deemed f**kable by you. Apparently all that matters about women’s mouths is what they put in them, not what comes out of them. Congrats. [Note: Non-Cassie fan; this is the first-ever song I've heard from her, btw.]

    [Reply]

    @LT, She hasnt performed live for YEARS, how can u say Rihanna is better etc? At least wait for an actual performance. Her vocals are pretty good in this and yall just hating as usual.

    @Andre, Compared to Cassie, Rhianna sounds like Whitney Houston in her prime.

    bijan Reply:

    @TheOne, How can you even compare whitney to rihanna? that is a disgrace
    i wish all of yall tryin to make this about chops would shush. there have been a lot of great singers that havent been able to sing like beyonce, whitney, etc and if you just keep on mentioning that cassie can’t, you make the music industry strictly about the power of your voice and you leave out everything else

    [Reply]

    TheOne Reply:

    @bijan, I agree, someone can be a great artist without having strong vocals. However those artists have other things to offer. Maybe they’re great writers, live performers, or producers. They make up for it some way, but what does Cassie offer?

    I don’t follow her career so please correct me if i’m wrong, but I don’t believe she writes or produces and the last time i saw a live performance from her it was awful.

    [Reply]

    INCAS Reply:

    @TheOne, Cassie might not have a powerful voice – but clearly her voice is appealing or else she wouldn’t have fans. Obviously Cassie has her looks presence style swag to offer – as a package she has star quality. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if she can perform live better than she has previously. Good luck to her. I prefer Make U a Believer to Radio, suits her voice better…just saying

    @bijan, I think a lot of people are just stunned by the fact that this woman has not given up her carreer as a singer yet. She can model, she has a dope sense of fashion, she can dance quite decent… But, no, the girl chooses to do the one thing she’s horrible at. It just makes her look like a fool. Her good looks are not helping either, makes people think less of her; like she’s only where she’s now ’cause of her looks. Which is partially true.
