Just because you have talent or passion doesn’t mean you’ll be successful. It’s one of the great tragedies of being in the music business. The sassy songbirds on this list may have had a hit, but one hit does not a career make. These female artists shot for the stars but fell short of mainstream success.
Cassie doesn’t have the strongest voice, but in 2006 she had a radio hit. Her song “Me and U” peaked at number 3 on the Billboard charts but that’s the most success she’s had so far. Even with music producers Ryan Leslie and P. Diddy steering her career, Cassie failed to wow the music industry. Today, she’s more known for being Diddy’s other main chick than for making music.
