Cassie is not only gearing up to embark on the journey of motherhood, but she is also getting back to her first love of music and has released three new singles, “Hungover,” “Excuses” and “Don’t Let Go.”  The 32-year-old credits black women with helping her enhance her creative process.

“For me, this is the first time that I feel that I actually have a strong team in place that has my best interests at heart and the added bonus is that the majority of the team are creative black females,” Cassie told L’Official. “To me, it means we see each other. The energy I feel when we’re in a room together is unmatchable. We all have our own levels of experience and we bring our best to the table. We support each other and balance each other out all at the same time. It just works.”

She added that working with this group of black women helped her to stop “overthinking the smallest things” and focus more on how she feels about the music she is creating and not how others may feel.

“When it comes to me choosing to work with certain people I have to go off of an organic connection. I love the fact that everyone that I work with now communicates fully on every aspect, we are not in competition, we work as a team and they actually understand who I am and who I want to mold myself to become. As a group, we work as a collective.”

The “Me You” singer also gushed about being an expecting mother and needing excited about her new chapter.

“My priorities have absolutely changed, not just for creating an amazing future and life for my daughter, but because I want her to be proud of me. I’ve heard people say that they’re nervous to raise females in today’s world, but I’m excited! I can’t wait to see her grow, learn and challenge the world right back!”

Cassie is pregnant with her first child, a daughter,  whom she is expecting with fiancee Alex Fine.
