Reacting to Jada Pinkett Smith’s use of the word ‘entanglement’ to describe their relationship, August Alsina’s new song “Entanglements” with Rick Ross dropped on July 19.
“I got into an entanglement with August,” said the ‘Girls Trip’ actress on her Red Table Talk show with husband, Will Smith on July 10. Following that talk, the word became the word of the month on twitter. The show even managed to set a record for most views on a Facebook Watch original episode within 24 hours, with more than 15 million views.
Pinkett Smith said that she had been going through a difficult time with her husband and they were separated at the time of the affair. However, both husband and wife denied that Will gave Alsina any sort of permission or blessing.
Earlier in an interview with radio host Angela Yee, the 27-year-old opened up about the affair and claimed he had Will Smith’s blessing. “I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation,” he told Yee “Due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership that they have spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing.”
August Alsina’s new song seems to be targeting Pinkett Smith and the use of the word ‘entanglement’. With the word blowing up the internet, fans knew it was only a matter of time before Alsina reacted and told his side of the story. And react he did!
August Alsina’s “Entanglements” calls the actress “cold-hearted” for using him and even goes on to mention a jealous man, but the man remains anonymous. “The definition of entanglement is when you tangle in the sheets,” sings the artist. “Entanglements is when you tangled in them sheets. Entanglements is when you’re tangled up with me.”
Two days before August Alsina’s “Entanglements” dropped, in an interview with New York magazine’s Vulture, he reacted to the relationship and the actresses’ use of ‘entanglement’ to define their relationship. “I don’t know why that word is such an issue.” he told the magazine “I definitely have to agree with it being an entanglement. It definitely was something complicated, a complicated dynamic” He added.
Just when things were starting to settle down, August Alsina’s “Entanglements” has sparked mixed reactions among fans for seemingly throwing shade at Will Smith. Now everyone is on the edge to know if Will Smith will respond to this hit or not.
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
