Cassie is under one of the most influential men in music, yet the follow-up to her 2006 self-titled debut remains lost in limbo. On schedule, she reassures fans she has been in the studio working on new material.
In a letter to her fans, Cassie says she has signed to Interscope and has a new management team. The “Me & U” performer also says she’s working on her album and a mixtape simultaneously. One hit-maker she has linked up with is Ester Dean. Ester is responsible for many of Rihanna’s hits, including “Rude Boy,” “What’s My Name?” and “Where Have You Been.” Could Ester equip Cassie with the song to push her album into fruition?
A letter to my fans: Hey!! How are you guys? I’m great! I just moved, so I’m getting settled at my new place. I had a dope session with Ester Dean last night. She is… Everything I needed and I’m cutting another record with Will.I.Am today. Not bad, huh? I’m working simultaneously on my album and my Mixtape/EP.
I know you all are wondering, Mixtape, huh? Well… I think the best we can be as human beings is to be resilient, right? I’m now at Interscope still with Bad Boy, which is amazing. I have GREAT new management that you’ll find out about soon and everything is FINALLY falling into place the way it’s supposed to, but one thing is missing. The music being delivered to you. Now, we all know that this album has been years in the making.
Creating, starting over, changing, leaks, growing, starting….never stopping BUT I wouldn’t change any minute of it. You get a better version of me for being so patient. This additional project is for you guys. My Mixtape is called Rock-A-Bye Baby, don’t take it so literal… Lol. You’ll see why.
I am so proud of this project. It’s not pop, it’s not R&B, it’s Cassie. It’s why you fucked with me in the first place. I love you guys and your continued love and support. I’m a lucky girl. So…. don’t get frustrated OR upset with me!!! Okay??? I know you feel like you’ve gotten the run around. Trust me, I have too. Something wonderful/exciting/fantastic is being created, just for you…because I love you guys and because I can. [iLuLuOnline]
