Heating up: See pics of emerging R&B singer August Alsina discussing his new album, Testimony

April 18, 2014

Airs Friday, 4/25 at 11 am ET on The Heat, Ch. 47

April 15 might be known as Tax Day to some, but it holds another type of significance for New Orleans R&B singer August Alsina.

Not only was this past April 15 the release date of his debut album, Testimony, but it’s also the anniversary of his brother’s death, an event that has clearly inspired some of the album’s content (see the disc’s lead single, Testify).

Just one day after Testimony dropped (April 16), August stopped by The Heat to record an episode of The Hot Seat (airing next Friday, April 25 at 11 am ET), where he went into detail about his just-released album.

Check out photos from Alsina’s Hot Seat session below, and don’t forget to hear the entire interview next Friday, April 25 at 11 am ET.
