Cassie Performs ‘King of Hearts’ on ’106 & Park’

Cassie

Cassie returned to BET’s “106 & Park” for her first television performance in six years. After being panned by critics in 2006, Bad Boy’s First Lady got back up on the stage and delivered her new single “King of Hearts” and the Kanye West-produced remix for the first time. The dance routine was choreographed by Laurieann Gibson.

Cassie spoke with Rocsi about her sophomore album. “It’s like a mish-mosh of my life. It’s the perfect reflection of who I am right now,” she said, while putting out a call for new collaborators. “If there’s any young producers out there, I’m still looking for that one or two records, so the door is still open.”

She will travel overseas to perform a 20-minute set at a festival in Spain in June, with 60,000 people in attendance.

    @thevoicexo, Great improvement Cassie! I don’t think she needed any harder dance routine – it’s a simple song, why over-do it. Breakdown into the remix was awesome

    @Paue, I watched it and her vocals were not good just keeping it real. For a performance that shes been practicing for 3 weeks that should have been way better.

    @no I think She did an amazing job!…It’s people like you that are the bad energy. Let’s see you do a better job routine an all, I bet you won’t say anything after that. So why don’t you take that nasty attitude, which i’m sure is a reflection for your SHITTY life! and take a Nap.

    Can we all be real for one minute please.
    There isnt an easier song to sing out there..
    please dont make up excuses. THAT.. is not hard. i Dont care how soft her vocals are.. Be REAL. People are listening with Eyes not Hearing shit at all. Is that what you consider a singer and a performer? Vs. Beyonce..even rihanna..who Have performed songs that are Vocally difficult to do? You want to give this a pass why? Idk.. im loosing hope in this industry. Everybody is a hype beast.. hyping shit. Fuk outta here. Sorry cassie.. you cute.. but i dont Give out passes just because. I want the real. – Kane

    @KainLaco, No, you mofo’s need to realize that everybody has a different opinion. Just because you think she did bad doesn’t mean everybody else does. Compared to what she did in 06, she did REALLY GOOD. People always have something to say but until you get your ass up there and do what she did then, do us all a favor and stfu!

    you can definitely see the growth in her from the last live performance she’s had. they need to hurry with this album though, they are waiting waaaaay too long. stronger vocals & better, more confident stage presence this time, for sure. & the comment about vocals is definitely worth something concerning cassie. im a fan, glad to see her doing her thing.

    WE NEED A RELEASE DATE.

    she DEF was MUCH better. She just needs more confidence on stage, which will come w/ more performances. That dance break went INNNN tho.

    @Treyy, Confidence.. she’s been in this industry for 6 years..?!!!
    We got some Crazy up and comers who aint been in here for 2 minutes that would murder cassie blind folded. Come on..

    She is strictly a studio singer. She has no confidence when she’s on stage and that’s probably because she knows that she has limited/no vocal range. As hard as I am on her, I still appreciate her music though. I wish her the best and her and her team need to hurry with that album because I don’t know what they’re waiting for.

    [Reply]

    Treyy Reply:

    @Kyle,

    She wasn’t super confident because last time she performed on TV (which was like 6 years ago) she got SLAUGHTERED by the media. It’ll take a few more performances before she gets that stage swag. Look at Kelly Rowland.

    she was LIP SYNCING c’mon. Cassie’s album will NEVER see the light of day

    [Reply]

    D&G Reply:

    @KeepItReal, like…..she wasn’t lipsyncing. her voice here is a little deeper than the track. use your ears betch….. anyhow, performance was ok. hope it gets better with each performance. better than me&u much better!

    [Reply]

    Treyy Reply:

    @D&G, RIGHT! how can these retards not catch the deeper LIVE voice. it was so obvious.

    [Reply]

    Chet Reply:

    @KeepItReal, I actually take it as a compliment that you think she was lip-synching because that means she did well. You’re obviously tone deaf if you couldn’t hear her singing in a deeper register that on record, which I’m also hearing for the first time and it is quite nice.

    I don’t know what’s worse, her performance or the people who said she did amazing. A damn shame. On the bright side, she’s still gorgeous and she’s keeping Diddy happy.

    I could tell she was nervous, but it was sooo much better than her performances used to be. I would like to see her evolve as a performer. I could see her becoming the female Chris Brown.

    She smashed! Holy fuck. Those of y’all saying otherwise are just hating, straight up. She’s grown as an artist and performer and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for this era. Bring it! Cassie Super snitches!

    Man, that was great! I really proud of Cassie! She was a lot more fearless this time. The more she performs the more confident she’ll be. Choreography and dancing was sick and she sounded good too! And of course Cassie always looks so good. Can’t wait for the album! :)

    [Reply]

    Chet Reply:

    @Jay, She really stepped up her game. To be honest I wasn’t expecting a whole lot going in, but she wowed me and then some. She’s definitely more confident and she came with that heavy ass swagger. I see Laurie Ann’s been workin hard with her on her dancing because it’s way on point. If Diddy plays his cards right with her promo and marketing, it could be a big year for Cass.

    And yo, WTF Rap-Up with always deleting my comments right after I post them? Is it a glitch in the system or something intentional? I don’t see anything I would say to be delete worthy.

    Wooow she really improved!!! I see a janet, Aaliyah from this generation! I’m impressed!

    Mentamir Reply:

    @Nando, you honestly think that Cassie is on their level? Don’t get me wrong, she did improve, but she’s still not a good singer nor a good performer. She is gorgeous and has personality, that is why they’re still investing in this girl, but she is not a professional singer. I don’t think there is anything wrong with acknowledging the obvious.

    AMAZING!! That was awesome Cassie, y’all know i’m a BIG fan right here!!! I have been following her movements since 06 and she has improve MEGA!! Its been 6 years.. But for her to go back to the stage she got slagged off on is COURAGE to the max! I’m PROUD of my girl Cassie, always have been and always will be! Come on Cassie, forget these haters, and WOW us with this album, I know you can do it!! I love you from the bottom of my heart! You are an inspiration to me! Do your thing, and don’t let these haters put you down,they are threatened by your SWAG and talent! Some people who read my comment will disagree, but this is my opinion, and it won’t change! PEACE OUT

    P.S Yo the choreography was poppin! Shoutout to my girl Latonya Swann, Hennessy, @avaflav and @taylormaas you guys were dope! xx

    I have mixed feelings about this performance. She did better than I expected, but it’s still not much she’s working with. I just don’t think Cassie’s place is in the music industry.

    [Reply]

  35. Kyle

    It’s frustrating that she has been recording this album for YEARS now and she says that she is STILL looking for “new producers to finish a few remaining tracks” on the album. Are you serious? The album should be more than COMPLETE by now. Announce a release date and drop the album please! Stop stauling…

  38. *Teairra Mari hates Rihanna*

    She needs to grow her hair back and go back to RnB music. Especially Ryan Leslie production because it suits her voice the best. This song is basic, performance was JUST OK. She should sing ALOT MORE and not this basic melody.

    [Reply]

    Errr Reply:

    @*Teairra Mari hates Rihanna*, have a seat. Why should she sing alot more when she can’t sing that much? As much as I liked Cassie’s stuff before – her voice is minimal and suits this not basic but simple style of music. Not everyone has to sing “ALOT MORE”. If she continues in this direction, she’s on her way to success. There’s always room for an artist to grow and for her to stay with Ryan Leslie wouldn’t have made that possible. So sit down. You should be more concerned over Teairra’s career…..

    @Impressed, i hope they Diddy pays for a really good set for Cassie’s 20 min performance. She’ll need all the dancers, lights, props, backdrop, extras she can get to make this a show to worth seeing. Good luck to her
