R&B singer Cassie is gearing up to release her follow up to her self titled debut disc. The new as-yet-untitled sophomore set is scheduled for May 20 and Cassie tells Billboard although “I hate to use the words grown-up, I really, really did since the last time around.” “I guess I grew up a lot but I’m still in essence the same person. Lots have changed in my life, stuff that has made me think about things differently. I’m more vulnerable and you can hear my vocals better this time around. There’s real emotion and a much realer connection with my fans.” The album features production from Seven, Mario Winans, Bryan Michael Cox, Eric Hudson, Sean C and LV and mentor Ryan Leslie, who discovered the Connecticut native. There are no guest features recorded as of yet. Cassie says the first single will be “a club record — something fun and danceable.” Cassieâs debut disc sold 319,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen Soundscan. The lead single “Me & U” peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and No. 3 on the Hot 100. It has also sold 989,000 digital downloads.
