August Alsina f/ Trinidad James – “I Luv This Shit” | Music Video


R&B artist August Alsina is beginning to make a name for himself in the States and here he brings us his official Def Jam debut, “I Luv This Shit,” featuring label mate and man of the moment, Trinidad James.

Hailing from New Orleans, 20-year-old August has already worked with the likes of soulful singer Lloyd on his remix of Kendrick Lamar‘s “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and recorded numerous versions of hit songs including Justin Timberlake‘s “Suit & Tie,” (titled “Shoot or Die”). But now he’s taking centre stage and proving just how impressive his vocals are with a shiny new visual directed by Knucklehead.

August and his rapstar accomplice, Trinidad James, are both seen cruising around the streets and surrounded by girls and as the video continues, it’s hard not to compare the budding singer to a young Trey Songz. He definitely has potential to go far. Look out for more smooth jams from August this year and check out “I Luv This Shit” below.
