Every rose needs the rain sometimes. How true is that? Pain and hurt serve as obstacles in life that help us to bloom and evolve. Sometimes we have to let it go and release the tears and hidden emotions. August Alsina's new single "Song Cry" produced by Brandon Hodge is so sincere and true. August speaks on numerous things on the track such as two faced people , undercover haters, trying to figure out which way to go in life , learning how to love, the loss of his brother, hate from his family , and how fame nor money can't get the love that he wants from those close to him, and staying inebriated to distance his mind from hurting . This song is so on point. August also references to contemplating suicide. (So glad he didn't ) . I think it's so important that August is telling his story and letting his supporters know that they can relate. That fame isn't all it's made out to be. That there are still problems and things money can't buy. To anyone that may be reading this if you are in a rough place in your life remember that it's okay to cry, it's okay to ask for help, and it's okay to let people know how you really feel. You can get through it ! It may seem hard now but things will change for the better. If you are thinking of committing suicide please reach out to the National Suicide Prevention hot line 1-800-273-8255. August is for sure letting his soul cry through these words. Even though he's stating that he's hurt by the people around him, he still has their back and still cares for them. This is a real track! I feel it. I'm pretty sure we all have cried once or a couple times because of pain whether internal or external. No matter who you are or what you are a going through a good cry and release of emotion whether its through tears, singing, art, dancing, writing etc , just might make you feel better. Just to get it out of your system. Who knows your story might just inspire someone else to keep going and not give up. I think August is a great and gifted young man.I'll keep him in prayer for sure. August releases his sophomore album "This Thing Called Life" soon. Stay tuned to his Twitter @AugustAlsina for updates.
