Cassie is a Pepsi Smash Hit

Cassie is a Pepsi Smash Hit

Cassie attends the Pepsi Smash relaunch party at Pasha nightclub on the Upper West Side of Manhattan on Thursday night.

Earlier this month, the 21-year-old R&B songstress did an interview for Billboard about her as-yet-untitled sophomore album, which is set to be released on May 20.

“I guess I grew up a lot but I’m still in essence the same person,” Cassie says. “Lots has changed in my life, stuff that has made me think about things differently. I’m more vulnerable and you can hear my vocals better this time around. There’s real emotion and a much realer connection with my fans.”

Although a first single hasn’t been released, Cassie assures it will be “a club record — something fun and danceable.”

    It’s so great to see Cassie on JustJared. I’m really tired of hearing people say “Oh she has no talent”.. what? just cause she doesn’t sing like Mariah? .. yeah right, like that’s a bad thing. Her debut album was a rare gem and I’m sure her sophomore will be even greater. Screw all those jealous Cassie haters. Keep doing your thing girl!

  • nychica

    good for you cassie!

    After whitening her teeth, she could be the perfect BOND GIRL!!!

    Thinking she has no talent does not make a person jealous. And that “you’re just jealous” excuse is so played. It’s like when people can’t think of anything else to prove criticism isn’t true, they throw out that weak jealousy explanation. Jealous of what? Pretty girls are a dime a dozen. People say she has no talent because to most, she doesn’t. It has nothing to do with her not being able to sing like Mariah Carey and everything to do with her not being to sing at all. Period.

    She’s damn cute, hope she comes up with a hot danc etune like u & me.

  • KC

    She gorgeous but she doesn’t have any talent as an entertainer. Not a good singer or dancer and has a horrible stage presence. Her songs are generic pop crap.

  • Tony



    Your response is just pathetic. Some folk are clearly jealous of her, granted others just think she has no talent. But when they back that up by saying “She doesn’t have a strong voice” – that’s just ludacris. Who does have a ‘Strong’ voice in Pop/R&B these days?? I mean, excusing the big voices like Christina, Alicia, Leona etc.. but 90% of this industry use back up tracks constantly while performing claiming to be live – and yes, you’re right, I’m putting Cassie in that category too because she does lil synch, but who gives a shit? If they deliver a great record, does it really matter? We all know, people who don’t have the strongest voice, or have a good voice at all are constantly being signed. We can’t do anything about that? But the way they signled Cassie out was just wrong.

  • Amanda

    Cassie looks hot.

  • Sam

    to Tony …

    I agree with you.

    Even though Cassie doesn’t have a big voice, she still has a great voice to listen to and her album was hot. For people to diss her because she doesn’t have a strong voice is stupid.

    If that’s the case, then they should also be targeting

    Ciara, Christina Milian, Brooke Valentine, Beyonce (who I’m sorry, uses back up tracks, even when she is live, so her voice sounds stronger when it’s not!) Ashanti, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Danity Kane, Amerie, Rihanna, Britney Spears,

    The list goes on and on, So yeah I guess you are right, almost 90% of the industry.

  • Rachel

    Oh there she is………………………..

  • Natalie

    Hate the outfit and her music is average, but she is STUNNING

  • Do You want more?

    I don’t think Cassie is talented – at all. I mean she is gorgeous, so yeah, she deserves to be a model. But the singing career flopped because after Me&u and those terrible performances (which showed us all she can’t be an entertainer) It’s plain and simple really. I am however, curious to what her new material is gonna sound like and the publics reaction to her sophomore disc. When it comes down to it though, Cassie will never be a Beyonce’ – Ciara, or even a second rate artist like Vanessa Hudgens. She will always be a third rate R&B singer with a number one hit and a (might I say hot) but flopped debut album.

    I do agree with #17 though. Bad artists are being signed non stop, and we can’t do anything about it. Plus most artists to sing over a track these days, which is frustrating – but hey, that’s the way it is.

    My only problem is how Britney has gotten away with it for so long!!!!!!

  • Porsche

    Why is she wearing green contacts? I don’t like them.

  • shannon

    her outfit is bangin!!

  • Blah

    Gorgeous girl!

  • +sara


  • ver

    Thought her voice was okay ’til I heard her sing live. Yikes!!

  • oldschooling

    She is pretty. Clearly modeling is her strong point. She does not have the voice for singing (without a lot of help from tech)

  • ronnie

    it’s Pacha, not Pasha
