Cassie is back to doing what she does best in the new issue of GQ… Flossin’ that bangin’ bawwwwwwdy of hers! The October issue of the mag talks to the singer about her long awaited return to the music scene and showcases her best assets at the same damn time!
“I’m just a laid-back person.” This is how Cassie explains the painful six-plus-year delay between her self-titled debut album and soon-to-be-released sophomore LP. “Maybe laid-back to a fault.” Furthermore, she doesn’t feel all that bad about it. Throw this in her face: that Rihanna— 24 to Cassie’s 26—has already released six studio albums. She’ll come back with Sade, who put out just six in her entire twenty-eight-year career. And you know, there’s no denying that the two share something else: a slow-burn sexuality (Exhibit A: this photo) that helps you forgive just about anything. “It’s been too long, I know, but I got to start over and over again,” Cassie says. “It would be awesome to stay popular, but if I was only an underground artist, I would be okay with that.” Unlikely, with mastermind (and rumored boyfriend) Sean Combs guiding her from the R&B do-me-baby sound of her debut to the electro-pop and tribal thump of the first single off album two, “King of Hearts.” “I feel like I’m a new artist,” she says. Whatever you are, we’re in.
