She's been taking her time to call & give S/O's for tons of stations VJs and stuff, they better play this non stop
Cassie stopped by MTV and somehow no one had a heart attack.
Cassie stopped by MTV, and somehow I was allowed into a private room with her, and my eyeballs are somehow still situated in my head and I didnt melt into a puddle of unworthiness. I dont know how either, guys, but lets not ask questions. So, yeah, Cassie came by MTV last week to spill some secrets on her upcoming album (!!!), her favorite Whitney Houston moments, and what working with Diddy (her boss at Bad Boy) is like. And yay, I recorded the whole thing! (While she was here, Cassie also made some time to make everyone around her feel really ugly because she might literally be the prettiest person in the world. Not her fault!)
Because youre a Cassie fan yourself, surely youre attuned to the fact that the worlds been patiently waiting for official new Cassie material for a really long time. Its been six years since Me & U topped charts pretty much everywhere charts exist, but the release of Cassies latest single King Of Hearts marks her much-anticipated comeback. Part jungle beats, part chilly R&B, and 100 percent danceable, fans are confident that Cassie is back for real this time, and she might be even better than before. (Though how thats possible I cant even begin to get my head around.)
+ Check out Buzzworthys interview with Cassie after the jump where she discusses her favorite Whitney Houston moments, some words of wisdom from her boss Diddy and more. And check out Cassies latest, King Of Hearts.
BUZZWORTHY: Before we get to your album, lets talk about Whitney Houston and her tragic passing. What are some of your favorite Whitney Houston memories or moments? Had you ever met her?
CASSIE: Ive never met her, but that would have been amazing. I Will Always Love You has been stuck in my head for the past four days, and Waiting to Exhale is one of my favorite movies. And that soundtrack She was such an amazing, legendary human being, and her voice just brought so much to the music industry and inspired so many people. And when it happened on CNN and they were playing all of her videos and performances and everything, I was just like, Wow, this career is just like out of this world.
BUZZWORTHY: What can fans expect to hear on your new album?
CASSIE: My new album is just a little bit of stuff for everybody. On King Of Hearts I worked with a producer named J2, and its got that jungle/dance/pop vibe. And then on what might be my second single I worked with Jean Baptiste [Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna] on a song called Money On Love and its a little bit funkier. And then I also have my R&B ballads, and I have a ska record called Mr. Valentine. Its kind of a little bit of everything, and thats who I am. I change my clothes five times a day!
BUZZWORTHY: What do you think is the biggest lesson youve learned working with Diddy?
CASSIE: To be patient. You know, your time comes when youre ready and the world is ready to see. Hes always like, When youre ready, theyll be ready. So, Im finally ready.
BUZZWORTHY: Who are some of the artists you most want to collaborate with?
CASSIE: I would love to collaborate with SBTRKT! And I dont know who the artists are on it, but Ive been listening to the Drive soundtrack. Its amazing! I loved the movie! The soundtrack is Anybody on there! Ive been obsessed with it. Listening to it nonstop.
BUZZWORTHY: Finally, this question is more for me but youre gorgeous please tell me you eat junk food. And if you do, whats your favorite?
CASSIE: [Laughs] I eat McDonalds at least once a week.
BUZZWORTHY: No, you dont.
CASSIE: Yes, I do. McDonalds and Burger King! I get um What she order? Fish filet. [Laughs] Or the chicken sandwich with cheese at Burger King. No, I eat tons of junk food. I try to eat healthy too, though. Cause sometimes when were running around we dont get any time to go to the gym or anything like that so I try to eat salads and drink lots of water.
Means that her bullet [called Move on Spin Increase] is either 61 or something in that area and that 22 stations are starting to play it, meaning giving it some spins, doesn't mean the station has officially added it
