R&B songstress and Bad Boy/Interscope Records protégé Cassie has dropped another single.
"Balcony," the second track from upcoming sophomore set, features rapper Young Jeezy and production from Rico Love, Earl Hood and Eric Goudy II.
Cassie's sultry vocals swim amid the slow-rolling beat, as she coos in the chorus: "We made love on the balcony / Right there in New York City." Taking a cue from Drake, Cassie flexes her lower vocal range, the beat almost identical to some of the more meditative cuts from last year's "Take Care" (think "Marvin's Room"). Young Jeezy's raspy voice adds a welcome contrast to her smooth vocals, along with his very blunt verses: "Why your voice so raspy? / Ooh, I hope she nasty."
With a previous single "King of Hearts" out in February and this week's release of "Balcony," Cassie also looks to be prepping the release of her upcoming "Rock A Bye Baby" mixtape, produced by Rob Holladay, Malay, Rico Love, Internz and Knotch, and featuring songwriting from Stacy Barthe. The dual releases will be Cassie's first major releases since her 2006 self-titled debut.
