August Alsina is Back Like He Never Left With “Don’t Matter”

August Alsina

Yesterday, August Alsina shared a candid interview with Jada Pinkett-Smith and opened up about his devastating battle with liver disease.

“I have a liver disease, where my autoimmune system is fighting against itself,” he explained. “The reality is that I’m sick all the time. I don’t really like to talk about it because I’m not looking for anybody’s sympathy. Don’t treat me like I’m a fuckin’ cancer patient ’cause I’m not.”

Today, the New Orleans native returns with a new track, “Don’t Matter,” the lead single off his third studio album, Drugs.

Note taken, August.

Using a acoustic guitar as his guide, August is a feign for his lady of the moment. “I be knocking down the walls every time you make that call,” he sings. “You be changing all your plans, but you’re callin’ me your man / You got something I can feel baby, girl it’s been so long / I been having withdrawals.”

“Don’t Matter” speaks to the “drugs” concept, which highlights as the theme of his project. “I realized how addicted to certain ways of living life I was, addicted to chaos, drama, confusion,” he mused. “Lately, for me, it’s been about breaking the cycle and creating a new normal. That new normal is love. I have a newfound addiction. Through love and beautiful women, I’ve been able to find myself, reach higher places within myself.”
