With the help of Kanye West, Cassie’s new single ‘King Of Hearts’ recieved an extra reworking needed to make it a certified hit.
Earlier this year in London, Kanye’s short stint as DJ Yeezy World Peace, saw him spin the record on his turntables so it was evident he was feeling the track from day one. It comes as no surprise that he’s put his own spin on the record. There’s no new verse from him, but he does add more clappier sounds, buzzier synths, and a harder knock with the tribal elements. The subtlety of Cassie’s voice with the progressive beat bodes really well and although it’s not anything spectacular, the remix itself is not a bad effort from him at all. Although the track was digitally made available in February, it was only serviced to US Rhythmic radio two weeks ago and Cassie has been tweeting quite a lot about rehearsals (rumour has it, and I put major emphasis on the word *RUMOUR* is that she will perform the song on ‘American Idol’).
It’s too early to count the song out as a flop just yet but promotion hasn’t been that strong to be honest. Hopefully, more is being done to help the song implode into the hit that it rightfully deserves.
