WTH: Cassie says New Album will be similar to “Aaliyah’s Sound”?


Cassie sat down for an interview with Nylon Magazine for their July 2011 issue to discuss her upcoming album, Electro Love.

According to Cassie, her new album is going to be a “blend of a cool pop, hip-hop, and ska.” She says she’s aiming for an “Aaliyah” sound. O_o

Here’s an excerpt of what Cassie had to say to Nylon Magazine’s writer Ysa Perez:

NM: Tell us about your new album.
C: It’s a cool blend of pop, hip-hop, and ska. It’s urban Gwen Stefani meets Aaliyah. I hate referencing people but if you had to compare, that’s it.

NM: What’s your favorite song on the new album?
C: “Lonely Disco Ball” which is about the end of the night when the party is done and everybody has left.

I’m not sure how to take her “new sound” theory, but I hope she can manage to get it together before her album drops. Stay tuned…
