August Alsina took a brief hiatus from the music game to deal with the complications of liver disease and addiction. Now, in his spin on Kanye West‘s “Wouldn’t Leave” he makes a strong reentrance back to music.
Alsina’s new track barrows West’s chorus while taking a different direction as the R&B artist sings, “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.” Alsina solely appears in the visual in a dusty abandoned housing complex.
The original song was featured on the 41-year-old rapper’s Ye album and was initially used as a public apology to wife and social media star Kim Kardashian. The New Orleans native approaches the song similarly to the “Gold Digger” producer in this love song about fighting through the hardships of a relationship.
The video arrives via Christopher Scholar and the ” I Luv This S**T” singer who worked together in directing the Def Jam artist’s comeback project.
The release of Alsina’s remix arrives just four days after West’s Pro-Trump rant on Saturday Night Live shocked fans, audience members, and the cast of the comedy sketch show.
