Cassie Compares New Album to Gwen Stefani and Aaliyah

It seems like Cassie has been working on her sophomore album ‘Electro Love’ for too long now. With no release date set as yet, the R&B singer/model recently opened up about the sound of the forthcoming project.

“It’s a cool blend of pop, hip-hop, and ska,” Cassie tells Nylon Magazine in the July 2011 Issue. “It’s urban Gwen Stefani meets Aaliyah. I hate referencing people but if you had to compare, that’s it.”

With several released tracks failing to make an impact at radio, Cassie may catch some flock for comparing her music to Aaliyah. But the singer, who considers herself a musician first, because she loves “being creative and letting myself be emotional in that moment,” is confident in her music.

Loving the direction of the project, Cassie says “‘Lonely Disco Ball’ which is about the end of the night when the party is done and everybody has left,” is her favorite track.
