Cassie is eyeing a September release for her sophomore Bad Boy album finally

and secret boyfriend label head Sean "Diddy" Combs says

"That's going to really, really catch people off guard. There's a huge cry out there for a younger Britney Spears, a younger Janet Jackson. Those two great artists have paved the way. She has a single out called ‘Official Girl' and Danja produced it, and it is a smash.”

Cassie released her self-titled debut in 2006, which went on to sell 321-thousand copies. Her single "Me & U" peaked at number three on the Hot 100.
Diddy says,
"I just don't think she was ready. I think that we threw her into the spotlight without the artist development -- that goes on with a lot of new artists. We pulled out, we took our time, we developed her for like, a year-and-a-half. People are just going to see her there and be like, 'Wow, she's really cocooned into a butterfly.'"
