She reminds me of Aaliyah (RIP). The long dark hair, black jacket, baggy pants.
But she’s not as hot.. Aaliyah had those dope beats from Timbaland..Still like the video and song.. It’s fire.

Love that video. I’m sure those words were to Mista D himself. Didn’t anyone learn from JLo??? Geeeeez.

Second thought…didn’t anyone learn from poor Kim???

Ayyiyi

this song is horrible
shes not even goign with the beat. horrible.
cassie is pretty as hell, but she just needs to stop
with the recoding contract, and just continue modeling
and never open her mouth EVER again.

i was thinking aaliyah 2

Comment by judy d.

I think its a very sexy tribute to many things Aaliyah coined as essential. Well done. The slipped track vocals is what makes the song. Get it Cassie, you got that “hating-worthy” look. Keep pushin’!

I think Cassie is pretty[no homo] and has talent..but she does remind me of the One In A Million herself..AALIYAH. I mean if you haven’t noticed in her videos after Me &U then you’re one lost puppy..no offense. See how in this video she is tryin’ to pull off that whole “hard or bad” thing? And you know in almost all of Aaliyah’s videos she did the exact same thing. I mean we of course understand Aaliyah doin’ this because; she was born in the hood of Brooklyn.. and then raised in the area of Detroit. So that’s probably what she seen when she was little; and she molded into a lil g. And Cassie; born in a nice rich neighborhood of Conneticut and went to prep school..so her trying to pull off that “hard” thing doesn’t really look right. And her hairstyle; I like that she’s classy, but we all know that the hair over one eye had been Aaliyah’s trademark look 4ever. I know she’s not the founder of that hairstyle; but in almost every video you seen her with her hair like that..come on don’t lie. And the baggy pants; she just started doing that! I think she might have went online and watched a couple too many Aaliyah videos, because also her choreography is from Aaliyah’s videos such as; Are you that Somebody, 4 Page Letter, and One In A Million. I think Cassie would be a better singer if she’d use her OWN creative style and individuality instead of making it a little too visibly obvious that she’s jackin’ her swag from Aaliyah. I love her music, but I think she can do better. And there’s really no excuse because Cassie is 22 yrs. old trying to take what was rightfully owned by Aaliyah. Aaliyah came here in ’94 at 14 yrs. old and instantly became an international super star and trendsetter as well as a teen idol for young girls everywhere. So she put in her work, her time, and she devoted her life to her fans, and her music. And she had the personality and natural umph that made you just undeniably love her. Cassie could do the same if she’d just use her own material and not that of a still grieved over,and respected deceased artist. I’m not trying to put her down, but it is kinda too obvious. Her songs and her self is cool with me; but I’d like to see the REAL CASSIE. Not the still stage frightened 22 yr. old that I’ve been seein’ alot of on t.v. Aaliyah is a One In A Million, Irreplaceable, and still a respected woman to this day. It’s sad that she’s no longer here to show everybody how it’s REALLY supposed to be done. They are both beautiful, and like I said..I love both Cassie and Aaliyah, but she just needs to find her self..not someone else’s rightfully owned individuality ya know? I like this video even though her and Lil Wayne tried to re do the whole Aaliyah and DMX “Back In One Piece” thing towards the part where she was takin pictures of her self; and when her and Lil Wayne were facing each other. But all things aside: Cassie you go girl..YOU CAN DO IT..JUST THINK MORE!! Rest In Peace Aaliyah!! There was and ALWAYS WILL BE ONE AALIYAH..NOBODY can take her place..listen to Missy Elliot’s song “Take Away” ft. Ginuwine and Tweet.. it wuz dedicated to Aaliyah..hear their words and they will tell you!!

Yes, she tried to imitate Aaliyah. And failed epically. She shouldn’t even be mentioned in the same SENTCE as this beauty and race of which is Aaliyah. Shut that stupid shit up. (-_-) I love you, Aaliyah. And Cassie, you’re cute, but don’t even try it…Aaliyah is NUMBER ONE for all eternity. But at least it’s apparent that Aaliyah had the biggest influence on today’s young female artist (beside Janet Jackson)…It seems like you see SOME sort of Aaliyah trademark on all these little girls runnin around: Ciara, Cassie, now RIHANNA <–Now THAT’S fucked up; Nicolr from the Pussy Cat Dolls, Ashanti <–supposedly. But WHATEVER. NO ONE can be Aaliyah. Not even if they changed their name TO Aaliyah and had the voice and looked JUST like her and chose to spend the rest of her life IMPERSONATING AALIYAH. YOU ARE NOT AALIYAH, BITCH!!! (-_-) THE END.

Agree ^^ But yo u were a little too harsh with the words. She is pretty, but I’ve seen lighter skinned black girls, dark skinned black girls, tan Asian chicks, Hawaiian that look WAY BETTER THAN CASSIE. Cassie is beautiful in her own right, but she IS NOT ALL THAT FINE[NO HOMO]. People be makin her, and Rihanna out to be “beauties” and so damn fine that it’s starting to upset me. I’ve seen girls that look alot better than Rihanna too. She pretty, but she ain’t even all that. THE ONLY REASON MOST GUYS[AND EVEN SOME GIRLS] ARE ALL HEAD OVER HEELS FOR CASSIE AND OR RIHANNA IS BECAUSE OF THEIR RACE. IF THEY HAD OF BEEN JUST FULLY BLACK GIRLS, NOBODY WOULD’VE BEEN THIS UP IN ARMS OVER THEM. BUT SINCE RIHANNA IS FROM THE CARIBBEAN, SHE’S AUTOMATICALLY CONSIDERED “A BEAUTY, AND EXOTIC.” AND BECAUSE CASSIE IS MIXED WITH ALL THESE DIFFERENT ETHNIC BACKGROUNDS, PEOPLE CLASSIFY HER AS “BEAUTY, AND HOT, FINE, SEXY.” BUT LOOK AT THE SINGERS LIKE CIARA OR LIKE KEYSHIA COLE. NOW AIN’T HARDLY NOBODY MADE THESE MANY RUMORS OR CALLED THEM SUCH EXTRAVAGANT NAMES LIKE THESE. IT’S ASHAME. LOOK LET ME SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT;

1. CASSIE IS NOT NOR WILL EVER BE “THE NEXT AALIYAH, THE RE-INCARNATION OF AALIYAH, OR THE REPLACEMENT OF AALIYAH.” SHE WILL ALWAYS BE CASSIE. NOT AALIYAH. SO THESE TIRED ASS RUMORS AND TOPICS NEED TO BE PUT TO REST

2. CIARA WILL NEVER IN HER LIFETIME BE LIKE AALIYAH. SAME AS CASSIE. YOU CAN COMPARE AND REMINISCE ALL YOU WANT, THESE 3 LADIES ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. CIARA IS MORE OF A DANCER THAN SINGER. AALIYAH WAS MORE OF AN R&B AND URBAN SINGER..SHE ONLY DANCED A LITTLE BIT. CIARA CAN DANCE BETTER, BUT AALIYAH CAN SING BETTER. CASSIE NEEDS TO HIRE A NEW VOCAL TRAINER/COACH OR WHATEVER, AND HIRE A REAL CHOREOGRAPHER AND NOT JUST SOME OLD PERSON THROWN IN AT THE LAST MINUTE BY HER RECORD COMPANY. AND THE ONLY THING I’VE BEEN ABLE TO SEE FROM CASSIE FOR THE PAST 2 YRS IS LOOKS. THERE IS NO TRUE TALENT BEHIND HER MUSIC, ALL IT IS IS HER LOOKS.

3. WHY COMPARE RANDOM SINGERS OR THE SAME SINGERS FOR EXAMPLE; CASSIE, AND CIARA TO AALIYAH? WHAT IS THIS GONNA PROVE? JUST BECAUSE CASSIE HAS HAMMERED INTO HER HEAD THAT SHE IS “THE NEXT AALIYAH” WE ALL KNOW THAT THAT’S JUST A BUNCH OF BULLSHIT! AALIYAH WOULD’VE SLAUGHTERED CASSIE VOCALLY AND CHOREOGRAPHY WISE, SO THE CASSIE COMPARED TO AALIYAH MATTER SHOULDN’T EVEN EXIST.

4. CIARA IS NOT THE DEATH OF BABYGIRL A.K.A AALIYAH. I READ AN ARTICLE ABOUT THAT, AND CIARA IS NOT ALL THAT GREAT NEITHER. LOOK AT THESE LADIES’ CAREERS. COMPARE CASSIE’S CAREER IN TWO YEARS, TO AALIYAH’S CAREER FOR 7 YRS. COMPARE CIARA’S CAREER IN 4AND A HALF YEARS TO AALIYAH’S 7 YRS OF MUSIC. IT AIN’T NOTHIN’ COMPARED TO WHAT SHE DID. I THINK PERSONALLY CIARA AND AALIYAH WOULD’VE DONE SOME SONGS TOGETHER AND BEEN REAL COOL. BUT IF AALIYAH HAD OF SEEN CASSIE IMITATING HER STYLE AND MOVES, THERE WOULD’VE BEEN A “CASSIE VS AALIYAH” BEEF GOIN’ ON. EVERYBODY HERE SEES WHAT CASSIE IS TRYING TO DO. AND SHE FAILS EVERYTIME. AALIYAH HAD SELF RESPECT FOR HER SELF, YOU SEEN THE RESPECT FOR HER BODY IN THE DANCE MOVES SHE DID, THE WORDS TO HER SONGS SHE SANG, AND THE CLOTHES SHE WORE IN HER VIDEOS. NOW LOOK AT HOW CASSIE DRESSES, AND THE ONLY THING SHE’S BEEN ABLE TO TALK ABOUT REPEATEDLY IN EVERY SONG..SEX. NOTHING ELSE, NOTHING BETTER AND NOTHING WORSE BUT THOSE 3 LETTER WORDS..SEX. I’VE NEVER HEARD A SINGER OR EVEN RAPPER BE THIS SEXUALLY GIFTED SINCE THE DAYS OF R.KELLY AND UNCLE LUKE HIM-SELF. IT’S ASHAME TO SEE JUST A PRETTY FACE AND NOT A PRETTY FACE BACKED UP WITH GOOD TALENT. I’M ACTUALLY ASHAMED THAT THEY WOULD EVEN CONSIDER CASSIE PAYING TRIBUTE TO AALIYAH. NOW CIARA COULD PULL IT OFF, BUT CASSIE?! OMFG..CAN YOU GUYS PLEASE LET THIS LITTLE SEX TALKIN, PRETTY FACE HAVIN, NO TRUE TALENT SHOWIN CHICK HAVE HER LITTLE SPOTLIGHT? BECAUSE IN 3 MORE YEARS DOWN THE LINE WHO’S GONNA REMEMBER “IT’S ME AND YOU NOW? i’VE BEEN WAITIN..THINK I’M GONNA MAKE THAT MOVE NOW” OR “OFFICIAL GIRL?” I KNOW I WON’T. BUT PEOPLE WILL STILL REMEMBER “AT YOUR BEST YOU ARE LOVE, AGE AIN’T NOTHIN’ BUT A NUMBER, BACK AND FORTH, IF YOUR GIRL ONLY KNEW, BACK IN ONE PIECE, ARE YOU THAT SOMEBODY, ONE IN A MILLION, 4 PAGE LETTER, DOWN WITH THE CLIQUE, WE NEED A RESOLUTION, MORE THAN A WOMAN, TRY AGAIN, AND HER SADDENINGLY FINAL SONG ROCK DA BOAT” 3 AND 4 YRS DOWN THE LINE. BE HONEST YOU KNOW YOU WILL. I’M FEELIN ‘BAD. AALIYAH PROBABLY IS LAYING SIDEWAYS IN HER GRAVE THINKIN ABOUT THIS GIRL TRYNNA EMULATE HER AND NOT SUCCEEDING. REST IN PEACE AALIYAH!!

why is everone on her case about aaliyah, she look like her, she trying to be like her, dame give it a rest and stop judging her its wrong and i hope she does not waste her time reading all this hateful comments. cassie is cassie and she will always be cassie, doesnt matter that her hair looks like aaliyah,she dress like aaliyah her videos are like aaliyah so wat at the end of the day she is still cassie and she is not trying to replace someone else. she is a great singer and she try her very best, so give her a fucking break. cassie u keep on doing ur thing and dont give a shit about wat haters say, and dont ever give up on ur dreams and ur not just only a pretty face ur more than that.
