August Alsina Denies Song Is About Rumored Romance W/ Jada Pinkett Smith
He shared a video on Instagram Wednesday night, and while he stayed silent in the clip, he set the record straight in his caption.
“Been quiet & still amongst all the noise last week, more so out of respect for Nip?? but I’ve been paying attention to all the theories of conspiracy ???in regard to “NunYa” Remix.. So Here’s To Clarity, The Song is not about Jada. It’s simply JUST A SONG , & a free artistic expression of a made up narrative already put in place by its ORIGINAL format. Thankyou for all of your love around the music & more is to come but please know that Me & my BEST (@jadapinkettsmith )are good!!! & We will always be, 4Life! We’ve been talking eryday while all this has taken place. ?Now yal stop trippin’. lol ..U know We got BiG ??LoVe for the Goddess over on this side.”
As previously reported, it was speculated that the song was about Smith after Alsina revealed she helped him overcome his addiction to Percocet last year. The video for the single features a string of text messages between a guy and a woman. The woman is upset that the guy moved on with someone else after putting his feelings out there for her. One of the text messages reads,
“The time I invested, you can’t give it back. You can’t get mad at the way I react. You had me feeling it was just as an act. YOU’RE JUST AN ACTRESS!! Putting on a show.”
At the same time, a GIF of Smith from her role in A Low Down Dirty Shame appears in the text that reads,
“Oh, so now you gon front?”
Fans saw a glimpse of their friendship when Alsina opened up about his struggle with drugs and getting help from Smith on her Facebook TV Red Table Talk series.
