An R&B music phenom who nationally debuted around five years ago is claiming he had an affair with a famous woman who is also married to one of Hollywood’s biggest superstars.
Singer August Alsina (pictured second right) released his latest project last month, which is an EP titled Forever and a Day. This is the third solo project Alsina, 26, has released in his career. However, a new song released by the “Been Around the World” hit maker has people talking about the dossier of dirt explained in this new song’s lyrics, not his latest EP.
Alsina’s new song is a re-do of female R&B singer Kehlani’s Dom Kennedy- assisted single called “Nunya.” A lyric video of Alsina’s new promotional hit was posted on YouTube last Thursday (March 28) and has garnered well over 600,000 views since then. Alsina’s lyric video superficially showcases a texting conversation between himself and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
However, she is still very much married to actor Will Smith and the two have recently stated that they are happily married.
Pinkett-Smith, 47, is portrayed in Alsina’s lyric video as a former lover named Koren, which is the actress’ legal middle name. Pinkett-Smith has had Alsina as a guest on her Red Table Talk digital series. The singer opened up to the veteran actress about his struggles with substance abuse.
The two appeared to become very close as Pinkett-Smith helped Alsina through a rough time in his life. However, the lyrics in Alsina’s new song suggest that the heart-to-heart he had with the Set it Off star went far beyond a mere drug and alcohol intervention support session for the purpose of sobriety.
In his new song, which Alsina is leading fans to believe was written about Pinkett-Smith, he sings about being frustrated over his former lover’s desire that their $exual affair be kept under wraps. He also sung about not being appreciated by her until he was out of her life.
“Putting on a show / ‘Cause you don’t want the world to know / That you lost a man who loved you all along,” Alsina sings in the lyrics.
“I gave you time to make me a priority / Put my feelings out there / You ignored it. Ain’t nunya business to know who I’m with,” he continued.
