Cassie Steele “Sex & Candy (Marcy Playground cover)”

cassie-steele
Like fellow ex-DeGrassi star Drake, Cassie Steele is trying to hit the pop charts. Her current single is “MAD” but she just dropped a cover of 90s one-hit wonders Marcy Playground. Steele is trying to hop on the bandwagon of alt-R&B singers. Her cover is vaguely reminiscent of The Internet or Erykah Badu but it feels a bit odd. Perhaps because the original straddled the line between quirky and sensual and Steele is trying to take it full sex, it feels like too much.
