Hot Shots: August Alsina Debuts New Man-Bun


August Alsina‘s image has experienced a number of shape-shifts over the years and the latest sees him embrace the experimental even more.

The once “hard-edged” R&B singer rocked an altogether softer look when arriving at a post-AMAs party this week.

Sporting a majestic man-bun (which he paired with a red rose), the star’s ensemble was equally as eye-grabbing.

We’re all for self-expression and subverting the status quo, so good on him for not being bound by “rules” that see folk conform when they don’t need to.

August Alsina Rocks London’s KOKO

Singer Delivers Dynamite Show In UK’s Capital


As rising R&B stars go, few can rival the excitement that surrounds August Alsina.

The New Orleans native has been on a steady ascend since the release debut album ‘Testimony’ in 2014 and cemented his status as one Urban’s top tier talents with last year’s follow-up ‘This Thing Called Life.’

Both projects have garnered the 23-year-old a gargantuan global fanbase, as such it wasn’t surprising to see London turn all the way up for his headline show at KOKO last night [June 14th].

Mirroring the minimalist motif of Alsina’s movement, there wasn’t much in the way of spectacle, pomp, or pageantry. Instead, the crooner – armed with a mic and a DJ (who was dynamite) – offered an honest set that was lapped up by crowd at the iconic Camden venue.

Over the course of the hour-long show, the star – who won Best New Artist at the 2014 BET Awards – journeyed through hits such as ‘I Luv This,’ ‘Kissing On My Tattoos,’ and ‘No Love,’  All of which sent London into a fervent frenzy.

To watch Alsina is to watch an artist whose music, message, and momentum transcends race, culture, and location.

A reality which makes his future all the more luminous.

Chart Check: Adele’s ’25’ Breaks New Sales Record As ’21’ Re-enters Billboard 200 Top 10


As reported here, Adele‘s massive comeback album, ’25,’ was expected to move 750,000 units by end of tallying last week.  If such feat was accomplished, the powerhouse diva would have crossed the 6 million sold threshold.

Now, on this side of tallying, we should’ve known better than to put any “ifs” in the equation.

Moving a whopping 825,000 units in its 4th week of availability (790,000 of which were pure sales), the project not only skipped right over that “6 million sold” mark, but now lays claim to a new sales record: ” first album to sell over 695,000 copies in four different weeks.”  With the added sales boost, ’25’ also claims the title of “second best-selling album” of the decade, an honor that sees her eclipsed only by the sales of the top titleholder – herself with ’21’ (which re-entered the Billboard 200’s top 10 this week).  Even its predecessor, ’19,’ has re-entered the top 40 this week.

Elsewhere on the Billboard 200, thanks to a few holiday-themed albums and reignited sales of some of the year’s favorite cuts, August Alsina and R. Kelly missed out on the top 10 completely (as we reported here).  Get into the top 20 below:
