Listen to Cassie’s New Down-Tempo Single ‘Balcony’ Feat. Young Jeezy
The down-tempo single showcases the R&B singer's sensual side, as she explains in the chorus: "We made love on the balcony / Right there in New York City." The song evokes a smooth swagger much like Drake's 'Marvin's Room.'
With production by Rico Love, Earl Hood and Eric Goudy II, Young Jeezy offers a stark contrast to Cassie's lower-range confessions with his gravely flow and forward lyrics. He raps: "Why your voice so raspy? / Ooh, I hope she nasty."
Cassie is set to release her as-yet-untitled sophomore album this year, and is reportedly working on her 'Rock-A-Bye Baby' mixtape, as well. The mixtape features production magic by Rob Holladay, Malay, Rico Love and Internz and Knotch.
Both the LP and mixtape will mark the 26-year-old's first releases in six years. The New York native rose to stardom with her 2006 hit 'Me & U,' from her self-titled debut released that same year.
In a 2010 interview with Hit Quarters, Bad Boy A&R exec Daniel 'Skid' Mitchell said Cassie had recorded 50 songs for her new full-length, but was taking her time with it. "She wants it to be something that people are going to respect, and she’s just really trying to have fun with her next album."
