August Alsina is back with a new single, "Wait," ahead of his upcoming album, which will release later this year.

The song comes behind the release of the single and video, "Drugs," which he dropped last week. On his latest offering, the New Orleans singer about wanting his woman to wait for him.

"Don't think for a minute that I'm a fool/Don't know what I'll do if I lose you/You need someone who will be there to hold you/I can't even say that it's fair, but I do/Hoping I will always be here if you need me/What I gotta say isn't easy," he sings on the sultry track.

August's third full-length album is due out later this year. In the meantime, you can take a listen to "Wait" below.
