If the reports are true, it looks like Diddy may finally be letting his little caged bird free to sing.
Citing an upcoming Mediabase newsletter, Necole Bitchie is reporting that Drake may have scooped up singer Cassie from Mammon for his OVO Sound record label.
R&B singer and occasional model Cassie, who had one of the biggest 2006 rhythm-crossover hits with the minimal electro Ryan Leslie produced “Me & U” and has since then been signed under Sean Diddy Combs exclusive Bad Boy/Interscope distribution partnership, has now inked another deal with Drake and Noah “40? Shebib’s OVO Sound, their first big signing. Riding high on the release of her new mixtape RockaByeBaby, well-received by fans and critics, Cassie is now preparing for a new single later this year, followed by her sophomore LP next Spring.
Drake’s been a busy guy since linking up with Warner Bros. and officially launching OVO. Since its December 2012 launch, the budding mogul has signed producer Nineteen85, singer PartyNextDoor and singer-producer duo Majid Jordan.
Some might be scratching their heads as to why Drake would make such a move but, let’s face it, OVO sound & lyrics + Cassie’s vocals = Jhene Aiko.
