August Alsina – Benediction Ft. Rick Ross

R&B crooner August Alsina reveals the second single, "Benediction," featuring Rick Ross, which will appear on his forthcoming debut album, Testimony. On the biographical cut, produced by The Featherstones, the gritty singer-songwriter spotlights his survival while coming up in the streets and also pays respect to his late brother.

Testimony will arrive April 15th, the birthday of Alsina’s slain brother, Melvin LaBranch III, and features appearances from Rick Ross, Jeezy, Yo Gotti, Pusha T, Fabolous, and more.

“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 good a 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.”
