Following her trip to Paris for Fashion Week, Cassie stopped by Tim Westwood’s radio show on BBC Radio 1Xtra to promote her new single “King of Hearts.” The model/singer shared her thoughts on Kanye West’s new womenswear line, meeting Shyne for the first time, reconnecting with former producer Ryan Leslie, and addressed the constant speculation surrounding her relationship with Diddy. She also hinted at a possible collaboration with Nicki Minaj on her upcoming album. Read some of the highlights below.
On Kanye’s new womenswear line: “It looks really, really great. The quality of it is really good and you can see that he’s grown since his last show.”
On meeting Shyne during Paris Fashion Week: “He is one of the nicest people, just like Rick Ross, and down-to-earth. I like when people have very little words when they speak. When they say something, it means something. They’re not just talking to hear themselves talk.”
On her rumored romantic relationship with Bad Boy boss Diddy: “I choose to say that I don’t talk about my personal life, but he is one of my very good friends.”
On her sophomore album title: “Electro Love is no longer the name of the album. I switched it. I’m gonna announce it on my website.”
On whether Nicki Minaj will appear on the album: “Possibly,” she said before Westwood responded, “That means yes.”
On reconnecting with Ryan Leslie, who produced her debut: “I still haven’t worked with him on this album, but we did meet and he heard my new music. I’m still open to do something ’cause we’re not done until we’re done with it.”
