Off his forthcoming sophomore album 'This Thing Called Life', August drops a new single titled "Song Cry". Get it at your preferred retailer below:
Set to be released this year on NNTME/Def Jam Records is the sophomore effort from BET's 2014 'Best New Artist' August Alsina titled 'This Thing Called Life'. Following up on the socially conscious "Hip Hop" and the Lil Wayne assisted "Why I Do It", Alsina teases his new single "Song Cry" with an emotionally charged trailer which he co-directed alongside Atlanta director Payne Lindsey.
Alsina narrates the clip with a very deep poem, speaking personally, "There's so much pain that lies within my eyes, like my brothers tragic demise. These tears I just can't hide". The clip concludes with a snippet of "Song Cry", produced by Grammy nominated producer Brandon "Bam" Hodges (Chris Brown, Trey Songz). Watch the trailer and read the full poem below...
Sometimes I just cry, and cry, and cry.
But every rose needs the rain.
There's so much pain that lies within my eyes, like my brothers tragic demise.
These tears I just can't hide.
I cry, cuz every rose needs the rain.
See, because some things money just cant change, like my new life and all this fame.
Nobody actin' the same.
The ones closest to you, they just actin' strange.
And it hurts man.
See, every night I pray for rain, to wash away this pain.
I cry, I cry , I cry, I cry.
Sometimes I just cry.
August releases his second music video for "Why I Do It" from his upcoming project, this one featuring Lil Wayne. Watch it above.
