Product Description

Everyone loves a Cinderella story. In 2006, the glass slipper belongs to Cassie, thanks to her smash debut single "Me & U". Just like the single, her debut album Cassie is infectious, seductive, and deep.

Amazon.com

While much has been made of former model Cassie's leap into the R&B ring--the vampy, MySpace-fueled first single "Me & U" topped more than a few best-of-summer lists--almost as much has been made of the wispiness of her voice. But what those who have stopped straddling the fence know is that the pillow-lipped beauty makes up for what she lacks in vocal power with an abundance of less obvious musical proficiencies: Cassie's a master of sass, a guru of guile. Hear it not only on the mildly menacing and seriously thrilling "Me & U," but also on "Long Way 2 Go," a merciless tease aimed at an amorous man who really ought to have known better. The rest of this brief disc bumps along on the greatness of its beats. Master blaster and producer Ryan Leslie (also Cassie's beau, it's rumored) strings together a minicourse on sampling as he slyly dips from old-school jazz to disco to vintage flamenco. Credit Cassie, though, for concocting a whole lotta 'tude. R&B has a whispery new minx. -Tammy La Gorce

Cassie's album is as catchy as a clever slogan. It's pretty short and when it's a new artist, it's best kept that way. The lyrics are puerile, but reflect the person who's singing them- a little girl. But it's as cute as Cassie's little face. "Me and You", although simple, has a beat I like hearing when I'm at the club. I am worried about her being on the Bad Boy label, however. They've been in quite the slump and I think it's due to "Bad Business". I don't trust Bad Boy. Every artist who had the unfortunate opportunity of landing on this label has had some "Bad" luck to say the least. She'd better move on and quickly. Otherwise, it's 15 minutes of fame and some bad publicity for Cassie. Who knows? Maybe even a little jail time. Just ask Jennifer Lopez, Lil' Kim, and Shyne. I say get out while the gettin' is good.

Cassie--proof that all it takes is a pretty face to make it in the industry. Whether you are in love with her debut album or not, it doesn't take much to recognize that Cassie is no Beyonce. She strains to reach her high notes and as far as soul...she has none. Other reviews from this site have blasted her for her lack of talent deeming her incapable of singing, but I'm not so much convinced that is true. Producer Ryan Leslie seems to hold her back in a lot of the songs, forcing her to play it safe. To make up for power, he decides what's best is to continually overlay her voice during the bridge or chorus on every song in order to fill in for something she lacks. Rarely do you ever hear her vibrato. It's just a plain note after the next. Why do you think artists like Beyonce Knowles and Christina Aguilera are so popular? It's because they take the risk to hit that high key. They warble the notes. They feel the music. Not to say that Cassie will ever be able to sing like those soul sisters, but there is a difference between living the music and just signing the notes written by someone else. Below are my song critiques on a scale from 1 to 10:

_ _ _

Me & U - This track is by far the best song off of the album. Like her voice, the song is simple--simple notes, simple beats--and yet has so much substance to it. Unfortunately, `Me & U' is not indicative to rest of the album sound. (10)

Long Way 2 Go - The only reason why this song is good is because it takes the same formula devised in "Me & U" and applies it similarly to this song--the only real difference being Cassie's attempt at rapping which has as little life to it as her singing.

By the time Cassie's first album was released in August 2006, her first single had been on the Billboard pop chart for nearly four months and reached nine million plays through her MySpace page. The page, set up in late 2005, was part of a strategy that sparked a lot of chatter and eventually landed the model-turned-vocalist on Diddy's Bad Boy, a label that had been in a deep slump. With plenty of anticipation already in place, Diddy did diddly when it came to shaping Cassie's career, stepped aside, and allowed his new signing -- along with her musical partner, Ryan Leslie, a studio do-it-all with credits on songs by Britney Spears and Donell Jones -- to run her course. "Me & U," the decidedly unwholesome track that excited so many MySpace users, became one of the spring/summer hits of 2006, following the likes of Ciara's "Goodies" and Teairra Marí's "Make Her Feel Good" as a sexy, assertive single with an intricate and space-filled arrangement that doesn't batter the ears into submission. The looming synthesizer patterns, along with Cassie's upfront and plainly sung vocal, combine with an ice-cream-truck melody to give it a slightly twisted and threatening edge contained by none of its like-sounding predecessors. The second single, the snapping and swirling "Long Way 2 Go," is just as irresistible in its flippant playfulness. Cassie scolds a hopeless suitor with such cutting nonchalance -- she's basically swatting a fly -- that you can see her delivering the lines by cellphone as she eyes a display of designer shoes. The brief album could only lose steam after that, and it naturally does, though a handful of songs stimulate enough to make certain that it's no rush-released cash-in. As a vocalist, Cassie has very limited range, but she has enough character and ability to sell her material without fail. And there will never not be a need for a vocalist who doesn't handle each stage of a relationship as if her life depends on it

This is the very first album I've heard in 2006 that I will give a very low rating. All the others this year I've given 4s, 3s and 5s to, but I didn't like most of this album. Cassie lacks the excitement of other female artists out there now. Most of this album would be better sung by someone else. Rihanna or Christina Milian could sing these songs much better than Cassie. It's all overprocessed R&B pap! The first six songs sound so low budget to me, not very much creativity and the music sounds 2-3 years out of date. All keyboard heavy, but they wouldn't sound good in the clubs. And how her voice is Pro-tooled and overprocessed to the point where you don't hear her own singing voice at all. Only 3 songs I liked--the hit Me and U, Just One Nite and What Do U Want. The other 7 just don't pull me in. And I'm not including the interlude, just the full length songs only. Cassie has the potential to be great--does have some talent, but she needs to do far, far better than this uneven batch of songs--sounds like she's rapping more than singing on some numbers. The one star is most deserving--much of this will be forgettable one to 5 years from now!

Seriously... "Me & U" is a good song. The beat is hott. She sounds horrible, though. She's a gorgeous girl... cute little everything. I'm not hating. She could eventually be a very great model. But to be honest... I'm just not understanding it when you listen to amazing artists like... Read More
