It’s been nearly two week since August Alsina dropped the video for his remix to Kehlani‘s ‘Nunya,’ but that hasn’t stopped fans from buzzing about its content.
The visual – which features an animated Alsina exchanging text messages with a mysterious woman named Koren – was believed by critics to address a longstanding rumor of an affair with Jada Pinkett-Smith. The assertion is supported by reports that a) “Koren” is Jada’s middle name and b) when the singer coos the line, “You’re just an actress putting on a show,” a GIF of Jada appears on the screen. Add to that, the 26-year-old’s reported absence from the Smith household as of late suggested there’d been a fallout of sorts.
Taking to his official Instagram handle recently, the crooner assured followers that not only are he and the actress on good terms, but the content was not aimed at her. Hear it from him inside:

Been quiet & still amongst all the noise last week, more so out of respect for Nip🙏🏽 but I’ve been paying attention to all the theories of conspiracy 😂🙄😐in regard to “NunYa” Remix.. So Here’s To Clarity, The Song is not about Jada. It’s simply JUST A SONG , & a free artistic expression of a made up narrative already put in place by its ORIGINAL format. Thankyou for all of your love around the music & more is to come but please know that Me & my BEST (@jadapinkettsmith )are good!!! & We will always be, 4Life!
