“iLLness is so humbling & I often find myself singing this song of affirmation to myself eryday, so I figured I’d share that same love, affirmation, and motivation with yal, whoever may need it. iHope it speaks to u,” says Alsina.
August plans to return with new music, he recently released a couple of remixes of songs from Kehlani and Khalid.
