Cassie to Join Drake’s OVO Label?

Despite having a breakout single over six years ago and a long-running record deal with Bad Boy, Cassie has yet to jumpstart a successful music career. That could change if rumors of a label change are true.

Necole Bitchie reports that the model musician will join Drake’s OVO label with boyfriend Diddy’s blessing. According to an upcoming Mediabase newsletter, Cassie will also prep a long awaited sophomore album for next spring.

“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. Riding high on the release of her new mixtape RockaByeBaby, well-received by fans and critics, Cassie is now preparing for a new single later this year, followed by her sophomore LP next Spring.”

There is no official word on the signing, but we will keep you posted.
