August Alsina Continues Love Affair With R&B Top Twenty

Published: Tuesday 14th Jan 2014 by David

Amidst the thousands of  admirers across the globe hoping to secure the attention of the Hip Hop heart throb August Alsina, one finds herself more smitten by the star than any of his or her competitors would care to admit.

Perhaps dazzled by his Def Jam approved vocals, smitten by his Southern charm and enamoured with the ease in which he wooed her, said admirer now finds their long running love affair lasting far more than anyone could expected.

Her name? iTunes R&B.

Her relationship status? Sprung.

Her story below…

Outperforming its Chris Brown & Trey Songz assisted remix, Alsina‘s ‘I Luv This’ has now spent 147 days on iTunes R&B, currently perched at #14 while the aforementioned remix sits at #24, despite being released two months after its original.

Indicative of the burgeoning commercial pull, the number has never charted any lower than #40 since its August 2013 release, standing as a seemingly permanent fixture on the chart’s Top 20 after its supporting ‘Downtown’ EP peaked at #14 on Billboard’s US R&B tally.

Why his success on iTunes is applause-worthy? Well, with streaming data now seeing many acts earn Billboard Hot 100 positions by way of ‘views’/’streams’, it’s Alsina‘s ability to pull in paid purchases that now sets him apart from acts who’ve opted to the free release route, and lay the foundations for what many hope will be an ‘album-selling’ career!

    He releases too many songs at once

  2. Realest January 14, 2014

    He has a generic “Chris Brown” type voice, nothing unique about it AT ALL and he SUUUUUUCKS live. Smh. Where are all the TRUE young male vocalists?

    He’s ghetto with NO stage presence. He’s also very rude, don’t let the interviews fool you. This guy really sucks bad. And not like he doesn’t have any talent or anything, but its like he doesn’t care about his performamces or anything. He will only be a 1 hit wonder.

    August can actually sing, but his media skills are terrible. He always seems under the influence and kinda rude. His live performances aren’t good either. He has potential to slay in his respective genre, but he has some major polishing to do…
