Def Jam Records recording artist August Alsina is getting ready to release his debut album Testimony on April 15th. Making the album available for pre-order today on iTunes, August gave fans a free listen of his highly anticipated record with Ricky Rozay titled “Benediction”. The New Orleans native expresses his confessions while labelmate and MMG boss Rick Ross adds a guest verse over this soulful Eric Hudson-produced single.
Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes, will receive “Benediction” as a free download, but for those unable to fork up $11.99 right now can stream the single below. Does this sound like a hit?
Started off in the streets
We would take collection from the fiends
People dying all around me
So I gave you my testimony
We were down from the beginning
When the world wasn't listening
Now that I got your attention
Let us in with the benediction
