August Alsina is no longer keeping the title of his upcoming sophomore album a secret. He announced the name via social media Monday night.
In an Instagram video, the R&B crooner revealed that the project is called This Thing Called Life.
Expected to drop later this year, the LP has already received a stamp of approval from DJ Khaled, who’s shown praising the New Orleans native in two 15-second clips.
“I like the way you sequenced the album,” the rapper states. “The only other time I’ve heard albums like that was like a Dr. Dre Chronic or a Nas Illmatic.”
The emcee also dubbed the singer a “young icon,” telling him the structure of the record is “unbelievable.”
