August Alsina- This Thing Called Life (Album)

August Alsina is still very new to the game but has been making waves for the past two or so years. He won the 2014 BET Award’s Best New Artist Award after dropping his debut album “Testimony.” After a year of touring and a terrifying seizure that left him in a coma for 3 days, Alsina has come back strong with his sophomore effort “This Thing Called Life.” I liken Alsina to Chris Brown but with more soul. And this album is full of heart, soul and powerful lyrics about topics very deep and meaningful to the artist, such as struggling with fame, the death of his brother, and problems facing the African American community. Whether it’s the amazingly emotional ballad “Song Cry” (my favorite) or the catchy jingle that is “Been Around the World” with Chris Brown, you’ll find a new song to add to your playlist, I guarantee it.
