Akon is an American singer of Senegalese descent whose music was very popular in the mid-to-late 2000s. I believe that the very first song of his I heard was ‘Locked Up‘, and I was captivated by his unique vocals and musical style.
I haven’t heard much from him music-wise in recent years, but I still appreciate his ability to shape the sound of popular music just by being himself and staying true to his African roots.
Here’s a list of other Akon songs that I enjoy:
The Sweetest Thing (with Wyclef Jean and Lil’ Wayne).
Chop my money remix (with P Square and MayD).
Wine for me remix (with R. Kelly and Sean Paul).
I am not my hair (with India Arie).
I wanna love you (with Snoop Dogg).
Sorry (Blame it on me).
The sweet escape (with Gwen Stefani).
I can’t wait (with T-Pain).
Are there any Akon fans out there?
Thanks for reading!
