R&B singer August Alsina has stepped forward to speak out on the controversy surrounding his new This Thing Called Life album leaking.

In Alsina’s opinion, his label Def Jam dropped the ball on its release.

“All this work just for my sh*t to be leaked,” August said in an interview with radio station Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club.” “I’m signed to Def Jam, so that’s the blame. I ain’t going to blame anybody else – yeah. It was a mistake on their behalf. Really it was a stream that was supposed to go up for Vevo. Rather than streaming, they just put the sh*t out. They just put the sh*t up on YouTube, like a careless f*cking mistake. It’s just careless – that sh*t makes me feel so [mad]. They said sorry and that’s the bullsh*t right there – I got a big f*cking mouth –
