August Alsina's "Testimony" Reigns As The Top Artist Debut On The Billboard 200!

With first week sales of 67,000 copies, young New Orleans singer August Alsina enters at #1 on the Soundscan R&B chart and #2 on the overall chart with TESTIMONY, his debut album on NNTME/Def Jam Recordings (released April 15th), an inspirational tale of survival in one of America’s most treacherous cities. The release of TESTIMONY came just three weeks after August wrapped up the successful 21-city 2 Good 2 Be T.R.U. U.S. tour starring 2 Chainz and Pusha T.

TESTIMONY, which immediately hit #1 on the iTunes Top Albums chart upon its release last week, takes off on the strength of a quartet of advance hit tracks that were featured on August’s debut EP, Downtown: Life Under The Gun: “Ghetto” featuring Rich Homie Quan (over 8 million YouTube views to date); “Downtown” featuring Kidd Kidd; “I Luv This Sh*t” featuring Trinidad James; and “Let Me Hit That” featuring fellow NOLA native son Curren$y. The brand new single from TESTIMONY is “Make It Home” featuring fellow Def Jam artist Jeezy.

The release date of TESTIMONY carries major personal significance for August; April 15th was the birthday of his older brother, Melvin LaBranch III, who inspired August to pursue music. Tragically, Melvin was gunned down on the New Orleans streets in 2010, just days before August’s 18th birthday. The murder remains unsolved.

TESTIMONY’s motivational undercurrent deals graphically with August’s past hardships – serious family issues including death, homelessness and addiction. “As an artist,” August reflects, “I struggle with how much of myself to give to the people. How much I want my personal business to be judged. I think the EP struck a good balance of who I am and what I’ve been through, but that was just the beginning. Nothing is held back on TESTIMONY. When people hear my story, and see that I came from nothing, they’ll see that it’s possible for them too.”

August Alsina Interview With This Is RNB

August Alsina made his debut right here back in August of 2011 with his acoustic remake of Lil Wayne’s “How To Love,” and following acoustic covers mixtape.  Followed by his first official project ‘The Product‘ exactly 2 years ago, and his successful follow-up The Product 2.   Reaching the top of the charts with his break-out debut single “I Luv This Sh*t,” the New Orleans native has been on an incredible climb, and it all culminated with the release of his first album Testimony, which hit stores on April 15.

ThisisRnB TV caught up with August while in NYC days before the LP’s release for a new interview.  In the clip above we take him back to his first releases, getting him to reflect on his goals and the early grind.  August talks about how his brothers passing pushed him to go all the way with his music and never look back.  He reveals that while working so hard he misses out on certain moments and loses memories.  But, the success of his debut single “I Luv This Sh*t” stuck with him because of how many people doubted it being a hit, and it was the song he knew had to be his official introduction.
