‘The Rise of August Alsina’: Singer Drops New Song, Trailer for Autobiographical Documentary

Published: Sunday 8th Dec 2019 by Rashad

From health issues to money woes and family troubles, August Alsina‘s life challenges have been quite well-documented over the years.  Yet, despite the hardships, the 27-year-old vows to persevere – a declaration the ‘Testimony’ singer made plain in his motivational new single, ‘Today.’

“I’m gon’ work like they gon’ put me in the ground today / I ain’t certain they won’t put me in the ground today,” sings Alsina. “Still goin’ hard everyday, tryin’ to overcome, that’s real / Still speaking from the heart, tryin’ to give the people something they could feel.”

The empowering anthem was accompanied by the release of the trailer for ‘The Rise of August Alsina:  stateofEMERGEncy.’  An autobiographical documentary, the film will chronicle the performer’s rise from the hard streets of New Orleans to the top of R&B charts and every obstacle he faced before, during, and since.

More inside:


While it’s yet to be confirmed what parent project the song is tied to, rumor has it longtime fans can expect a full body of work from Alsina by spring 2020.  The effort will be his first studio album since 2015’s ‘This Thing Called Life.’

In other August news, look below to see the trailer for his forthcoming documentary.  As of time reported, the film does not have an official release date.

    Camila cabello’s sophomore album #Romance is officially one of the fastest albums in history to reach #1 on the US iTunes album chart.

    Number one in 40 countries on itunes including us and uk.

      Such a horrible album. What a representation of the population showing they have no taste

    • Clarkso00n December 8, 2019

      #Romance by Camila_Cabello has reached #1 on the Worldwide iTunes Album Chart!

    • Oh plz December 8, 2019

      But it ain’t #1 on US iTunes now, troll. So, STFU. Frozen 2 got the b**** beat, just like it’ll beat her on the billboard charts this week. ‘It’s the season indeed.

    This is extremely dark. Juice Wrld just passed and for a young Black male, I find his death VERY suspicious. There may be something to symbolic sacrifices in this industry. I worry for Alsina’s mental well-being. He is quite damaged and allegedly had an affair with Jada Pinkett. I think the Smiths are not as squeaky clean as they’d like the public to think and Red Table Talk seems like a distraction.

      Lmao! The conspiracy theories in this comment! ^^^^^^^^^

    I wish him the best! His last album was an R&B classic so I’m excited.

    God has him always
