It’s been six years since Cassie seized the dancefloor with her chilly, irresistible R&B smash “Me & U”, but after a number of apparent false starts, she appears to be back for real. Earlier today, the “Make You A Believer” singer released the full-length version of “King of Hearts” — the lead single from her forthcoming Electro Love LP — just in time for Valentine’s Day. Is Cassie ready to re-establish herself as club royalty? Listen below.
Cassie — “King Of Hearts”
“You are the prince of charm / Seduction is your art / You never play my love / You’re just my king of hearts,” she sings, surrounded by echoing vocal effects and a bouncy beat.
Unfortunately, it sounds to us as though Cassie’s heart was missing from this one. “King Of Hearts” — whose video will drop on Valentine’s Day — is a pure electro-dance number (produced by J2). But her customary distance works against her in this one, and the result is a throwaway.
