That same year, Alsina was named “Best New Artist” at the BET Music Awards. The R&B vocalist’s second album, This Thing Called Life, which features collaborations with Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Jadakiss and Anthony Hamilton, debuted at number 14 on the Billboard 200. With two recent singles dropped (“Drugs” and “Lonely”) and a new album rumored to be in the works, Alsina brings his smooth voice and simple bass beats to the Aztec.
