August Alsina’s ‘Testimony’ Wins R&B Album of the Year in 2015 The Boombox Fan Choice Awards
August Alsina’s Testimony album may have been released last year but the singer is still being rewarded for crafting a stellar debut project.
The New Orleans native’s first LP has earned him R&B Album of the Year in the 2015 The Boombox Fan Choice Awards. Alsina walks away with over 82 percent of the fans’ votes.
Featuring the banger “I Luv This S—” and the Nicki Minaj-assisted ode “No Love,” Testimony showcases Alsina’s knack for penning poignant lyrics over a blend of soulful, head-nodding beats. His loyal supporters, who helped the crooner win the award, know they can turn to him for his versatility — he goes from heartfelt to sensual all on one album.
Alsina competed against Sam Smith’s In the Lonely Hour, Jhene Aiko’s Souled Out, Pharrell’s G I R L and Trey Songz’s Trigga, among others. Ten artists filled the category but only Alsina scored the big win.
