Single Song: Must Be Love feat. (Puff Daddy)
Reviewed by Heather Covington
“The Literary Heat”
Like a breath of fresh air, new music artist, Cassie, the songbird whose music career seemed to be on pause while taking on movie cameos and major endorsements, effortlessly jolts out a hit the fab chicas can relate to who just want to hear a Hip-Hop ballad when riding in ones vehicle with the sun roof open, hair all out and blowing with natural length in summer wind.
“I think about you all the time, can’t get you off my mind,” is the catchy hook in Cassie’s sure to be mega-hit “Must Be Love,” and featuring the “Bad Boy” Puffy aka Sean Combs who lends his classic Hip Hop vocals to every song he produces and deservingly so. If you aren’t reminded by the swagger of an ‘ole Gina Thompson hit like, The Things You Do,” then you simply will have to go back in time and research Puffy’s hits and all of the artists he’s breathed life into.
Cassie undoubtedly brings her own flava to music with that same unassuming big voice that you wait to get better, but it stays on its course and continues to give listeners just enough to buy the album for keeps.
Call her the new Universal Princess of RnB who no one saw arriving so soon, Cassie has certainly paid her dues, but instead of cutting that ribbon of success, she’s cut off one side of her hair recently. Perhaps, it “Must be Love” for the green because Cassie is headed straight to the bank and there isn’t anything anyone can do to stop her reign. If you listen carefully to her latest hit, all of that “ker-chang ker-chinging” is a money register repeatedly popping open. It’s certainly Cassie’s time to shine.
