Abu Dhabi superclub MAD is starting the new season with a bang.

Hot on the heels of this week’s announcement that Kid Ink would be appearing at the club on Thursday, October 4, another big R&B name has been revealed for the weekend.

August Alsina will perform at the Yas Island venue on Friday, October 5 for a special edition of the club’s URBN night.

The 26-year-old from New Orleans, who’s signed to the legendary Def Jam Records, released his debut album Testimony in 2014 and the follow up This Thing Called Life a year later.

Apparently he was inspired to perform after seeing Fugees star Lauryn Hill singing in Sister Act 2 but his blend of R&B shows more of a hip-hop influence than Hill’s work.

Drinks are free for ladies all night on Friday, too.

Free entry. Fri 11pm-3.30am. MAD on Yas Island (055 834 6262).
