Tell me is it me or the drugs, ’cause baby I can’t tell: Is Cassie really back?
The answer is… yes, Cassie of forever iconic “Me & U” fame has indeed returned! The last time we heard a real body of work from the stunning singer-actress-model, “officially” speaking, was with her stellar RockaByeBaby mixtape back in 2013, which still holds up to this day.
Today (August 4), after a surprise premiere during OVO SOUND’s radio show on July 22, Cassie‘s brand new single “Love A Loser” arrives in its fully glory!
The track is a moody and hazy R&B cut all about Cassie claiming her independence after going through a not so pleasant break-up. “I’d rather lose a lover than to love a loser/ Everything you did, I wouldn’t do it to you/ Got my vision clear so now I’m seeing through ya/ Writing you a letter, I’mma send it to ya,” Cassie croons in the opening lines above atmospheric swirls and an alluring, slow-tripping beat.
She stays true to her signature, minimal-R&B sound throughout, but it’s her icy talk-singing where she truly shines like no other can – just as she always has (playing to her strengths). G-Eazy comes in later to provide a solid verse, adding a little meat to the otherwise chilled-out production. Then, it’s back to the hypnotic chanting: “I would rather lose a lover than to love a loser/ Rather lose a lover than to love a loser/ I would rather lose a lover than to love a loser/ Rather lose a lover than to love a loser/ Think I’m under your spell…“
I welcomed return from the icy-R&B diva – I am overjoyed!
“Love A Loser (feat. G-Eazy)” by Cassie is also available on Apple Music now!
