thoughts. A.
August Alsina was a singer that was recommended to me. It was crazy because I’d heard a couple of his songs, liked them, but didn’t know who sung them. I’m glad I did decide to give him a listen, because he has a nice voice and puts out some consistently good rnb music. Testimony is his debut and it’s actually pretty good, one of the best I’ve heard. I always come out of debut albums feeling incredibly underwhelmed or feeling as if they could have been better than they were. That is not the case with August Alsina. It’s actually hard for me to pinpoint a track on here that I really disliked as all of them were above average listens. August makes me think of a more palatable Lyfe Jennings. What I think I liked most was the fact that I went into a few of these tracks thinking I wasn’t going to like them and ended up liking them a lot, such as: Testify, Porn Star, FML, Grind & Pray/Get Your Money, Ghetto, Ah Yeah, Benediction and Numb. I was pleasantly surprised with a few of the tracks in I had no clue he sung Numb until this album listen. I thought I would roll my eyes at Mama, but ended up being a little touched by it. The stand out on this album is without a doubt You Deserve, and I actually like the No Love remix more than the original. I think it’s safe the say that this is definitely an album from August I would buy, as the replay value is high an I can listen to it all the way through without skipping a track. That’s a good album in my book.
