August is coming at us fast, and we’re still in July…
Of course, we’re talking about August Alsina. The 27-year-old rapper released a new song—”Entanglements”—on Saturday night, and naturally, it got people talking for its name.
“The definition of entanglement (No, oh-woah, oh, oh) / It’s when you’re tangled in the sheets (Yeah, yeah),” August croons in his new single, featuring rapper Rick Ross. “Girl I know that we don’t call it a relationship (No, oh, oh) / But you’re still f–kin’ with me (Oh), yeah (Yeah).”
The track’s cheeky title and lyrics appear to be a reference to Jada Pinkett Smith‘s recent Red Table Talk episode, in which she sat with husband, Will Smith, to discuss her past romance with August.
“About four and a half years ago,” the actress described. “I started a friendship with August. We actually became really, really good friends. It all started with him just needing some help. Me wanting to help his health, his mental state.”
