August Alsina is an American singer who was once signed to Def Jam Recordings. He is from New Orleans, Louisiana. In 2012, he came out with his first mixtape, The Product. In 2013, he released The Product 2 and his first EP, Downtown: Life Under the Gun, which came out on The-Radio Dream’s Killa Records and Def Jam Recordings.
Alsina then released his first studio album, Testimony, in 2014. This came after his singles “I Luv This Sh*t” (with Trinidad James) and “No Love” both went platinum (featuring Nicki Minaj). This Thing Called Life came out in 2015 as a follow-up. After leaving Def Jam and taking a long break, he came back in 2019 with the EP Forever and a Day.
Alsina’s third album, The Product III: State of Emergency, came out in 2020, along with a five-part documentary series about his life, family, and health. This was supported by his “entanglement” with actress Jada Pinkett Smith, which got a lot of attention.
Early Years and Education
August Anthony Alsina Jr. was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, on September 3, 1992. In middle school, he went to school in New Orleans. Even though no one in his family could play music, Lauryn Hill’s performance in Sister Act 2 made him want to sing. Alsina put up her first video on YouTube in 2007, when she was 14 years old. It was a cover of Lyfe Jennings’s “Hypothetically.”
Alsina’s mother moved him to Houston, Texas, after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, so he could start over with a new family. Both of Alsina’s father and stepfather were addicted to crack cocaine. Alsina’s father died at that point. Alsina and his mother had fights at some point, and Alsina was “Kicked Out.” Melvin La’Branch III, his older brother, was shot and killed on August 31, 2010. After that, he put more effort into his music and moved to Atlanta in 2011.
Is August Alsina Really Gay?
Yes, August Alsina is Gay and His Sexual Orientation is Homosexual. Two years after Jada Pinkett Smith told the world that she and Alsina had a “entanglement,” he came out as gay.
The Star of Surreal Life said this on Monday night’s episode of the VH1 reality show August Alsina Talks About Fear and Finding Love, where he talked about a man named ZaZa.
Alsina said that the show, which had finished filming a year before, had changed his life. “My life has gotten even more surreal,” he said. He also said that his life had “changed a lot” in the past year and that being on the reality show “taught me how to love in so many different ways.”
He said, “Love Showed Up.” “But this time. I want to tell that to the person I love, who loves me back, and who has taught me so much about how to love and heal. I want to do that in front of everyone because it goes against all the ideas people have about what love should be or how it should look.
When he was done talking, a man came in and sat down next to him. They then gave each other a hug.

Alsina’s love life has been a hot topic since 2020, when he said that he had an affair with Jada Pinkett Smith while she was still married to Will Smith and that Will Smith was fine with it. The Smiths said that there was no affair in a statement. A few days later, Pinkett Smith confirmed the affair on an episode of Red Table Talk. She called it a “entanglement” and made everyone look up the word. She made it clear that her husband had not agreed.
Many of the R&B singer’s fans helped her out on social media.
“August Alsina says he has a boyfriend,” someone wrote.
A second person said, “The release of August Alsina wasn’t on my 2022 Bingo Card! But, I’m proud!”
“So now August Alsina has a boyfriend? This tells you everything you need to know about Will and Jada’s marriage. A third critic said something.
Someone else wrote, “So, now that August Alsina is gay, can we make his fight with Tory Lanez a hate crime?”
Someone else wrote on Twitter, “I’m so happy for August Alsina, but I really wanted Will Smith to be his boyfriend.”
Someone else said, “August Alsina coming out was the classiest sh*t I’ve seen. You’re doing great, sweetie.”
