August Alsina goes for some dream-like fantasy love in the brand new video for his newly released song “Drugs.”
Waking up in a small boat filled with large jungle leaves and flowers, the R&B star is covered in white tribal style body paint, and a silk floral robe. While singing the seductive lyrics, he’s surrounded by maidens of the sea, ready to take him into the water. Temptation prevails and by the video’s end, he’s getting intimate below his boat.
Alsina directed the video along with Amber Gray and its themes seem to echo what he recently revealed about his new album as a whole. “I realized how addicted to certain ways of living life I was, addicted to chaos, drama, confusion,” he said. “Lately, for me, it’s been about breaking the cycle and creating a new normal. That new normal is love. I have a newfound addiction. Through love and beautiful women, I’ve been able to find myself, reach higher places within myself.”
Following 2014’s Testimony and 2015’s This Thing Called Life, Alsina’s third album Drugs is set to drop this year.
