August Alsina has slowly been building up to the release of This Thing Called Life. His single "No Love" went platinum and his next single "Song Cry" followed in late October. It was set to officially drop tomorrow (Dec. 11), but the album leaked early.  The New Orleans singer took to Twitter last night to vent with a series of  tweets in which he claimed his label, Def Jam, did it.

After everything settled, Alsina took to Instagram to clarify everything in a personal note explaining that his tweet "came from a place of frustration." He went on to say that the album leak "hurts me to the core." You can read his full note below. This Thing Called Life officially drops Dec. 11.

 

To Whom It May Concern, #ThisThingCalledLife is officially out on Dec.11th
