Known for rocking bold hairstyles (see her 2009 half-shaven look), Cassie‘s locks popped on the white carpet at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (Aug. 28) as the singer/model sported a neon yellow ‘do as a tribute to the eccentricity of past VMA ensembles.
“As a kid, watching the MTV Awards, I always saw how cool and crazy everybody got to be with their outfits so I wanted to try something different,” the (usually) brunette beauty tells Billboard.
Beyond slaying the runway, she also teased that a new record is on the way. “I just signed a deal with Epic [Records] and Bad Boy and I have a record called “Makeup” that I did with [producer] Detail,” she teased, adding that the track would arrive “in a few weeks.” Detail has been known for working with A-listers like Beyonce and Jay Z, and won his first Grammy last year for helping craft the power couple’s boozy love song “Drunk In Love.”
“Makeup” would serve as the first offering since Cassie’s 2013 Rockabyebaby mixtape.
