Ms. Ventura shares another track from her forthcoming mixtape.
Written by Timberlake-collaborator James Fauntleroy and produced by Da Internz (‘A$$’, ‘Birthday Cake’), ‘Paradise’ is a mid-tempo jam awash with elastic synths and a femme fatale sneer. The track is more energetic than the smoky ‘Numb’, and Cassie sticks with paradise / pair of dice wordplay while weed enthusiast Wiz Khalifa turns in his standard 16 bars.
The accompanying video is directed by Alex Nazari and finds Cassie riding around in a Chevy low-rider, drinking 40s on a stoop, and other live-and-die-in-LA scenarios. Cassie’s eagerly-anticipated RockaByeBaby mixtape is due out on Thursday.
