The Diddy Curse: 8 Of The Best Artists Formerly On Bad Boy Records

There is no question that Diddy (or is it P. Diddy nowadays?) is a hugely influential music mogul, ever since his job as a record executive in the ’90s era. But there have been many instances where the businessman fell short of doing his job. Bad Boy Records is notorious for being the…

10 Flop Star Divas Time Forgot (But We Never Will)

Not everyone reaches the pinnacle of pop superstardom, kittens — there just ain’t room. And yet, for every sweet-faced starlet with massive chart-toppers, there are thousands of minor pop also-rans destined never to do better than a pity deep cut on Now, That’s What I Call Music! 48,901.

Cassie Drops Solange-Penned Track “Indo” Off New ‘Saint Heron’ Compilation: Listen

Ah, Cassie, the icy queen of R&B non-releases. The songbird still hasn’t dropped her sophomore LP (and it’s been seven years since her self-titled debut, gulp), but she’s been keeping fans’ appetites sated with killer tracks like “King Of Hearts” and an omnipresent rash of leaks: But now for something actually official!

Cassie has…

Cassie Drops “Paradise” Video, ‘RockaByeBaby’ Mixtape

Cassie has dropped her music video for “Paradise,” the second single off her new mixtape RockaByeBaby.

Cassie Drops “Numb” Video With Rick Ross, Announces ‘RockaByeBaby’ Mixtape

Ah, Cassie — the queen of icy, low-emoting dance-pop&B. The chanteuse has just dropped “Numb,” the first video from her upcoming mixtape RockaByeBaby, and it’s — well, typical Cassie: Sleek and minimalist and a little bit diffuse and overall pretty effective. Helmed by Alex Nazari and featuring a prominent guest spot from a cigar-puffing Rick Ross, it’s classic Cassie hipster decadence.

Cassie Teases New Single “Numb” Featuring Rick Ross: Watch

Alright, so maybe “King of Hearts” didn’t quite take off in the way that we all imagined it would (global dance smash!), and maybe it’s now been a full seven years since Cassie released an album, but, well, we just can’t give up on her. We won’t. And so when Cassie drops the teaser for a new…

Nicki Minaj’s “The Boys” Video: Watch The Colorful Cassie-Assisted Clip

With even Barack Obama weighing in on Nicki Minaj’s interpersonal drama, you’d expect her to going a little bit higher-concept with her video strategies — maybe a video symbolically depicting her triumph over Mariah Carey in this year’s election season? — but alas, she’s kept it pretty simple in her video for “The Boys.”

Nicki Minaj & Cassie Tease Provocative Picture From “The Boys” Video Shoot

Even when she’s not sparring with Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj doesn’t seem to have any trouble stirring up controversy. Take, for example, the picture she tweeted recently of herself with her “The Boys” collaborator and video co-star Cassie, which is staged in a, uh, provocative way. A way that would be provocative even if Minaj…

Cassie Breaks A Sweat For ‘GQ’

Cassie is certainly heating up the pages of GQ’s October 2012 issue — so much so, in fact, that the R&B siren seems to have broken a serious sweat during the shoot. The 26-year-old songstress, who recently joined forces with Nicki Minaj on “The Boys”, poses in a variety of skimpy bathing suits and heels…

Nicki Minaj & Cassie’s “The Boys”: Listen To The ‘Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up’ Single

The members of the male sex Nicki Minaj sing-raps about in new tune “The Boys” don’t exactly come across as being the most desirable. “Your lipstick stains smell like a cheap hotel, diamond watches and a gold chain can’t make my frown turn around,” she laments on this, the first single from the upcoming Pink

Cassie & Young Jeezy Engage In Some Serious PDA On “Balcony”

Cassie goes way up high on new slow jam “Balcony”, featuring Young Jeezy as her male amour who doesn’t mind getting caught doin’ the nasty on a balcony overlooking Times Square. No, seriously: “We made love on my balcony, right there in New York City / I saw the tourists staring back at me, at…

Kanye West Remixes Cassie’s “King Of Hearts”

Someone other than Diddy is making a play to promote Cassie — Kanye West has remixed the siren’s comeback single “King Of Hearts”.

Kanye West, Alicia Keys & Diddy Are Black & White For Paris Fashion Week (PHOTOS)

It was a very colorless affair for many of our favorite hip hop and R&B performers at the Givenchy show for Paris fashion week over the weekend. As he so often does, Kanye West opted for a plain white shirt — but at least this one was a sweater, studded with stars. Meanwhile, Diddy was…

Cassie Crowns Her “King Of Hearts” With New Video

Cassie first teased with a preview of her “King Of Hearts” video in January ahead of the full song’s online release late last week. And now, appropriately, the love-seeker has premiered the full vid for her J2-produced single on Valentine’s Day. Cassie’s paper-thin vocals are delivered without much oomph, we’re afraid. (That’s surely part of…

Cassie Celebrates Valentine’s Day Early With New Single “King Of Hearts”

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.

Cassie Crowns “King Of Hearts” On New Single

It’s been well over five years since Cassie graced the airwaves with her lone hit “Me & U”. And in that time, she’s seen a bucketful of songs leak online, partaken in various photo shoots and made non-singing cameos in other artists’ videos.
