August Alsina Wants You to “Wait” on New Single
Another week, another new August Alsina record. The Def Jam crooner drops "Wait," a song that finds Alsina singing about telling a woman that he wants her but he may not be there for her as much as she would like him to.
"Don't think for a minute that I'm a fool/Don't know what I'll do if I lose you/You need someone who will be there to hold you/I can't even say that it's fair, but I do/Hoping I will always be here if you need me/What I gotta say isn't easy," he sings.
Last Friday (Jan. 6), he released a new song called “Drugs” and this week, he dropped the video for it, which features a painted Alsina swimming with a couple beautiful ladies and singing about an addictive love. Alsina's upcoming album is titled Drugs. Last week, the former XXL Freshman spoke about the LP’s theme in an Instagram post.
“I realized how addicted to certain ways of living life I was, addicted to chaos, drama, confusion,” he said. “Lately, for me, it’s been about breaking the cycle and creating a new normal. That new normal is love. I have a newfound addiction. Through love and beautiful women, I’ve been able to find myself, reach higher places within myself.”
Alsina has not announced a release date for Drugs, but the project should make for a big return following a quiet 2016. The Louisiana singer only did a few guest spots following the release of his This Thing Called Life album in December 2015.
