Did Drake Sign Cassie to OVO Sound?

blame it on Shake August 9, 2013

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.

    Hope so, love Cassie’s music! Needs more exposure

    Between having Drake as a songwriter and guest feature, his ear for beats and melodies, including production from 40, that would be about the best way for Cassie to go. Signing with Puffy sure as hell won’t net you any success. She’s not the best singer in the world, but I like Cassie. Me & You was the shit lowkey, I haven’t heard her mixtape but I’ve heard good things about it, so I might check it out. If nothing else, she’s sexy as hell lol.

  • That’d be dope, actually quite like the shit Cassie put out on her last mix tape. Plus any excuse to see some music vids from her

    This is a great move for Cassie. 40’s production & Drake’s songwriting would work out perfect for her. This may be the moment she’s been waiting for.
