Jada Pinkett Smith’s former lover August Alsina has appeared to address his fling with the actress in a brand new song about their infamous “entanglement” amid the fallout of the Will Smith Oscars slap.
Now Alsina has released a brand new song titled “Shake The World” which details the public backlash he says he received when their relationship was made public in 2020.
The lyrics seem to suggest that Alsina felt he was “canceled” when he was revealed to have had a fling with Pinkett Smith.
“I heard I was canceled,” he sings on the track. “Well, let’s speak on that/Red dot on my back, I became a target/And I’m flawed but flawless, that’s what makes me August.”
Later in the song, he sings: “Industry tried to exile a boy/Momma say we all gotta bear our cross/Had to wear it like I’m cut from Jesus’ cloth.”
The Smith family has been making constant headlines over the past week since Smith walked on stage at the Academy Awards on Sunday, March 27 and slapped Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife.
