Cassie is featured in Nylon magazine’s June/July “Music Issue.” Inside, she talks about music (her inspiration, iPod, favorite Pandora station and new album), as well as her fashion sense & style.

Tell us about your new album.

It’s a cool blend of pop, hip-hop and ska. It’s urban Gwen Stefani meets Aaliyah. I hate referencing people but if you had to compare, that’s it.

Who do you want to collaborate with?

It’s pretty unattainable but I would love to work with Prince.

Do you consider yourself a model or musician?

Musician because I love being creative and letting myself be emotional in that moment.

Describe your personal style.

Right now I’m in my tomboy phase. I wear my Jordans and flannel shirts.

Do you have an item of clothing that you can’t live without?

My black leather Balmain pants. They have a rip at the knee that I have never fixed and I will never throw them out.

What’s currently on your iPod?

I’m playing my new stuff and the new Britney Spears album. I have phases when I listen to an album over and over again. Three months ago, it was The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

What do you listen to on a lazy Sunday?

I just downloaded 21 by Adele, which is a good vibe for those days. Pandora is amazing if you put it on the right channel – like the Maxwell channel.

Do you come from a musical family?

My dad plays the trumpet, my brother the drums, and my mom the piano. I played the piano, too. I’m not as good as I used to be, but I can still read music.
