Cassie Appears on Nicki Minaj’s Latest Track “The Boys”

It looks like Cassie’s getting a big assist in her musical comeback…

The 26-year-old part-Mexican R&B singer, who recently released the latest single “Balcony” from her highly anticipated sophomore album, appears on Nicki Minaj’s just-released single.


Entitled “The Boys,”the Cassie-assisted, bass-heavy track is the first single off Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up.

“You get high/ Love a bunch of girls/ And then cry on top of the world/ I hope you have the time of your life/ I hope I don’t lose it tonight,” so Cassie sings in the melodic hook in between the bouncy beats.

“The Boys” will appear on Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up, which is set for release in November.

The set will feature 5-8 new tracks, including a collaboration with Lil Wayne. “So Barbz, you are going to spaz, you are going to love it, you are going to go crazy,” gushed Minaj, who will be serving as a judge with Mariah Carey on American Idol, about the upcoming effort when being interviewed on the red carpet of the 2012 MTV VMAs.

Cassie Releases Latest Single “Balcony”…

Cassie is on the ledge of returning to the music world full force…

The 26-year-old part-Mexican R&B singer has released her latest single, which features rapper Young Jeezy and production from Rico Love, Earl Hood and Eric Goudy II.


Entitled “Balcony,” it’s the second track from Cassie’s upcoming sophomore album, which will be reportedly released this fall.

On the track, the Bad Boy/Interscope Records protégé’s sultry voice floats abover the slow-rolling beat, as she sings in the chorus: “We made love on the balcony / Right there in New York City.”

Cassie flexes her lower vocal range throughout the song,  while Young Jeezy’s raspy voice adds a nice contrast to her smooth vocals, along with his very blunt verses: “Why your voice so raspy? / Ooh, I hope she nasty.”

With a previous single “King of Hearts” out in February and this week’s release of “Balcony,” Cassie also looks to be prepping the release of her upcoming Rock A Bye Baby mixtape, produced by Rob Holladay, Malay, Rico Love, Internz and Knotch, and featuring songwriting from Stacy Barthe.

The dual projects will be Cassie’s first major releases since her 2006 self-titled debut, which has sold 321,000 copies in the US.

The album’s lead single “Me & U” peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100, selling more than 1 million digital downloads.
