Over the past few years, singer August Alsina took a brief hiatus from the music scene to handle his addictions and fight the complications of liver disease. The New Orleans native is now back with a new track incorporation Kanye West’s “Wouldn’t Leave.”
Alsina’s song of the same name borrows ‘Ye’s hook but becomes more personal within the song’s verses.
“I don’t feel like she’s mine enough/ God, I feel like I don’t have you quite enough/Trace of your fragrance all over my skin/Try to escape it but you pull me right back in/And I know you wouldn’t leave,” he croons.
