Word is Drake just might have another artist in sights for his OVO Sound imprint. According to Necole Bitchie (who sourced an upcoming Mediabase newsletter, excerpt below) the Toronto emcee has added Cassie to the roster, joining PARTYNEXTDOOR and “Hold On, We’re Going Home” contributors Nineteen85 and Majid Jordan.
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. … Cassie is now preparing for a new single later this year, followed by her sophomore LP next Spring.
Although she’s had her share of mishaps, her recently-released RockaByeBaby mixtape has been receiving pretty good reviews. Pairing her vocals with OVO production and Drake’s seemingly Midas touch, I could definitely see this working out.
