August Alsina Shares Two New Tracks

“Been Around The World” and “Dreamer.”

December 04, 2015

After revealing the tracklist for his forthcoming Thing Called Life album this week, August Alsina unveiled a pair of new tunes today. The singer teamed up with Chris Brown on "Been Around The World;" the hook—"been around the world and I-I-I"—interpolates Diddy's "Been Around The World," which in turn borrowed its chorus from Lisa Stansfield's 1989 classic "All Around The World." "The Dreamer" examines the cycle of urban poverty, a topic Alsina has explored before on songs like "Make It Home" and "Downtown."
