Cassie Ventura, the replacement to Ciara who never really took off when it turned out Ciara still had a career, is back with a new track. And her change of direction, stylistically, mirrors Kreesha Turner a bit. Like "Rock Paper Scissors", "King of Hearts" is a bold move in the current musical climate. "King of Hearts" is a dance track, yes, and has a catchy hook, Cassie doing a great job with a subtle delivery. But it's not a typical dance track compared to other huge songs like what Taio Cruz and Chris Brown have been succeeding with. Like Kreesha, Cassie's change of direction seems like a willingness to accept trying something new to stay relevant, but doing it her way instead. It's a great track, let's hope it sticks.
