When addressing her affair with August Alsina on “Red Table Talk”, Jada Pinkett Smith famously described the relationship as an “entanglement.”
Not coincidentally, the 27-year-old rapper has just dropped a new track featuring Rick Ross. Its title: “Entanglements”.
During an interview with Vulture, Alsina responded to Pinkett Smith’s use of the word “entanglement.”
“If you look up the definition of ‘entanglement,’ it is a complex and difficult relationship,” he said. “It was exactly that. I think it’s just the language that probably stuck out to people. But I definitely have to agree with it being an entanglement. It definitely was something complicated, a complicated dynamic.”
In “Entanglements”, Alsina shares his definition of what the word means. “The definition of entanglement / It’s when you’re tangled in the sheets / Girl I know that we don’t call it a relationship / But you’re still f**kin’ with me,” he sings.
In the first verse, Ross uses some clever wordplay and a reference to Pinkett Smith’s role in “The Matrix” to make it even more clear who the song’s about.
“Shawty leanin’ on my shoulder, got her questionin’ my willpower / Jaded by her beauty, but her reputation real solid / Mornin’ down the hallway, I can tell you how I feel about it / Caught up in the Matrix, and I doubt if I can get up out it,” raps Ross.
Prior to dropping the new track, Alsina teased its release on social media.
