I’ve been waiting for this album for years. And when I say years, I mean, before his YouTube channel became a hit and before anybody knew who Cassie was.
I remember first hearing his music before he signed with Casablanca; some artists I knew had signed a deal with NextSelection at the time and R. Les was working with Cory Gunz & Latif. Back when I was jamming to “Me & U” before the Bad Boy stamp (I’ll leave that story for another day).
If you’ve heard R. Les’ album, you already know that the music is incredible. But there’s more to it than just that. I truly love this project because it’s a solid example of something I feel very strongly about: real vs fake.
Next Selection‘s Cassie is back with a new song from the Step Up 2 Soundtrack, called Is It You? I know the track isn’t new new, but I’ve been hearing this track non-stop on radio and never knew who sang it until now. I think the Pop/Hot AC vibe suits her well.
