40Cascada

Most of the people here I know, and I believe you do too. Not saying these artists aren't good and deserve better, just saying that when you see this artist on here, you are probably thinking "who's cassawhata? " Well, Cascada hit the dance world pretty hard, but they didn't do so great on the regular charts. They had 3 hits, and only one (every time we Touch) made it to the year-end charts, but, anyhow, people knew those songs more for the song than the artist. Cascada needs a comeback, they hadn't had a hit in years.
