At the time of an October 2010 interview with Hit Quarters, A&R Daniel 'Skid' Mitchell said that Cassie had already recorded around fifty songs for the album.

On April 24, 2012, Cassie performed the single live for the first time at BET's 106 & Park music video show.

She concluded the performance with a brief dance number set to the Kanye West remix of the song, along with four dancers.

Before everyone got a shot of Sean Combs lounging on the Met Gala red carpet, gazing adoringly at his date Cassie as she posed for the flashbulbs, the hip-hop power couple took some time to chill.

Dressed down in sweats and a robe, Combs and Cassie lounged at home with eye masks and hot tea, prepping for a night of fashion, high-wattage performances, and lots of posing.

According to Bad Boy A&R Daniel 'Skid' Mitchell, rather than largely relying on the one songwriter-producer, the new album's mix of writers and producers, as well as her own co-write input, makes it a more personal record for her.

Commenting on the number of producers on the album, Cassie said that she "collaborated with a lot of different producers and a lot of different writers, which was an amazing opportunity for me, because on my first album, one producer [Ryan Leslie] straight through…which was fun, but it was nice to experience other people." In 2008 Cassie made her film debut as Sophie Donovan in the dance film Step Up 2: The Streets, Cassie also sang the lead single "Is It You" to the Step Up soundtrack.

During this time, Diddy heard "Me & U" in a club, and Leslie convinced him to partner his Bad Boy Records with Leslie's Next Selection imprint for the release of Cassie's debut album.

Cassie's self titled debut studio album was released in August 2006, peaking at number four on the Billboard 200 chart and features the Billboard Hot 100 top three hit "Me & U", which became a major hit in 2006.

However, the music mogul's girlfriend Cassie had a few questions about their friendly get-together.

(Good thing Cassie got her red carpet pout and leg-pop practices in immediately after slipping on her voluminous black On Aura Tout Vu gown, Christian Louboutin heels, and Judith Leiber skull clutch.) After twirling around the couple’s living room to make sure everything was right, the singer joined her man Diddy, dressed in a Rick Owens suit and patent leather Louboutin shoes, and headed to the museum.
