To commemorate the one year anniversary of August Alsina's debut album Testimony, the New Orleans crooner has released the "Right There (Remix)" featuring Meek Mill.

On the reflective track produced by Knucklehead & Cassius Jay, Alsina and the Philly rapper find themselves using their past struggles to motivate listeners.

Alsina's first album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 album chart. HotNewHipHop gave the album an overall rating of 82 percent, noting Alsina's storytelling abilities.

For R&B artists, August Alsina is probably harder than anyone in the genre. Although his voice is easing, don't get it twisted- he's about as gangster as singers come. His authentic storytelling can be heard throughout the album, as he puts his blood, sweat, and tears into every word he songs.

One can only imagine the stories he'll tell on his next project. According to XXL, August Alsina is currently prepping his as-yet-untitled forthcoming sophomore album, which will feature the previously released single "Hip-Hop."

Things have been pretty quiet for Alsina since he collapsed off stage during an NYC performance on his Testimony Live Tour last September. He fell into a coma for three days and has remained pretty much under the radar, with the exception of an appearance during an Usher show at the Staples Center in L.A. last November and his mini-tour with Chris Brown.

Take a listen to "Right Here (Remix)" after the jump.
