Cassidy King has been one of the brightest spots of 2020 for me without a doubt. After first discovering her through mutual friends, it was very apparent from the beginning that this girl was something special. From her look, to her sound, to her aesthetic, Cassidy stands out above a lot of the artists we’ve seen in 2020 and her music is further proof of it.
One of the first songs that I got the chance to listen to by Cassidy was one of her most notable ones; an emotionally fueled piece of art called, “Wasted”. As soon as I pressed play, it was immediately evident that I was listening to someone who lives and breathes through their music which materialized in a song that tugs on your heart strings and makes you want to dance at the same time. If you haven’t heard this fire track by Cassidy, then today is your special day, since the Ohio native decided to drop an acoustic rendition of the well known song.
Captured in a visually stunning video, “Wasted” has truly never sounded better as Cassidy’s raw and beautiful vocals are put on display. Accompanied by a stellar guitarist, the lyrics in this song connect on a whole new level than what I thought was possible. The intimacy and transparency that’s present in this acoustic version gives “Wasted” brand new wings to soar even higher than the original song already does. I’ve attached the youtube link down below so make sure you give this one your time and check out the rest of Cassidy’s music!
