“Wait” finds August in an empty room with interpretive dancers swaying about. While he sings about his wishes, the dancers gracefully surround him with pirouettes. Meanwhile, sunlight fills the room with a summery-glare.
As the clip resumes, Alsina is shown at the head of a long table filled with fruit. A snake — possibly the same one that appeared in “Drugs” — slithers across the bountiful tabletop, as snow begins to fall out of nowhere.
“If you gotta leave, girl, I won’t stop you, so do what you gotta do,” sings Alsina while surrounded by snowflakes. “I don’t want you to go, but I got a few things in life that I gotta do.”
“Wait” and “Drugs” are singles off August’s recently-announced third album Drugs, the follow-up to 2015’s This Thing Called Life.
