August Alsina has unlocked a brand new song and both its lyrics and timing have set tongues wagging.
Full story below…
Titled ‘Shake The World,’ the track arrives after 2020’s ‘Entanglements.’ And much like that release, it sounds like the R&B crooner is drawing on his relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith.
As widely reported, the actress opened up about her brief romantic “entanglement” with the musician during a brief separation from husband Will Smith.
In eyebrow-raising timing, August unwraps his newest number in the aftermath of the actor’s Oscar night fiasco – which saw him slap Chris Rock live on stage after the comedian made a joke about Jada’s bald do. It’s of note that Jada has been candid about alopecia – a medical condition that causes hair loss.
On the song, August belts on the lyrics:
“Well, of course some s – – t is bound to go down when you tangled up with the world’s favorite.”
He went on to add:
“I heard I was canceled. Well, let’s not speak on that. Red dot on my back, I became a target. And I’m flawed but flawless, that’s what makes me August.”
