Several people have commented on singer, model, actress and dancer Cassie’s recent Instagram post, congratulating the singer on finally earning her own platinum plaque for her 2006 debut single “Me & U.” The danceable pop song peaked at number 3 on the US Billboard Hot 100 while spending 27 weeks on the chart 16 years ago and went platinum the same year.
In the post, which revealed she received a plaque, Cassie wrote: “When I told my attorney @chrisbrownlawyer that I never received my platinum plaque for ‘Me & U’ he couldn’t believe it and left it kindly make one for me. Thanks for reminding me to celebrate myself Chris! This was long overdue. Thank you to my love @alexfine for holding me as I opened the board. I’m so glad I got to share this moment with you. I love you so much [heart emoji].”
Celebrities like Nazanin Mandi, Lena White and many more rushed to present Cassie with her well-deserved flowers.
Her husband of nearly three years, Alex Fine, showed his wife some love with his hilarious reply: “Wow! You earn 100 plaques. Wait till they hear your Baby Shark remix!”
Fans of the singer’s hit single couldn’t wait to comment on the song’s performance, but also felt that “Me & U” should have received plaque status.
“Should have been platinum as I’ve played it over and over to get those dance moves down.”
“This song should have gotten its flowers years ago!”
Some blame Cassie’s ex-music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs for giving “Me & U” the recognition it deserves right now.
“Diddy was holding it hostage”
“How did Diddy escape that?”
In 2007, Cassie became a spokesperson for Diddy’s clothing line, which is where the dating rumors began. Cassie and Diddy were one of Hollywood’s IT couples for over 10 years before officially splitting in 2018. Although their relationship time has been filled with publicly made allegations of cheating, it seems like there is no bad blood between the two. The rapper and music producer recently thanked his ex-girlfriend “during his BET Awards acceptance speech for being an important person in his life while he was “in a dark place for a few years.”
