Our Review

Akon’s appeal is in the way he effortlessly straddles the worlds of saccharine R&B and hardcore hip-hop. For decades these areas were firmly segregated. Can you imagine Lionel Richie duetting with Run-DMC? Or Luther Vandross singing the hook on an LL Cool J track? Not only can Akon put a song like “Shake Down” (“Cause you will rarely find me / Without my weapon on me”) next to a song like “Never Took the Time” (“I can’t believe that your love is gone…why can’t you understand my pain?”) he is also an expert at wrapping extremely crude lyrics in sugar-coated melodies. His collaboration with Snoop Dogg, “I Wanna Love You,” has all the sincere yearning of a wedding vow, until you realize that Akon is singing about lusting for a stripper on a pole. But such is his charm. His voice has a candy clarity that is perfectly suited to the kind of delirious song epitomized by “Smack That.” At the same time, “Don’t Matter” displays a strikingly plainspoken voice and melodic sensibility (partly absorbed from the deep musical culture of his native Senegal) that make his songs hard to forget.

Customer Reviews

Great Sophmore CD (5 stars)

Though I'd to come back with a better review after listening to the cd more than once. It is well worth purchasing. Each song is uniquely it own, not left with the feeling you've heard them before. Beats are strong and he using is voice like a well tooled instrument. In Akon's style you get a part of him in his music as well as a menu of musical genres from an appetizing selection of hip hop/R&B/Pop w/Shake Down, Blown Away, Gangsta Bop,

This is great! (5 stars)

This album rocks. My favorite songs are Smack that and I wanna love you. Akon is one of my favorite rappers of all times. I could not wait for this album to come out. I was so excited when I saw it on the New Released thingy. I'm so happy, oh so happy! Whatever. Buy this and you won't regret it.


Good beat… disgusting lyrics without depth (1 star)

Don't know why Eminem works with such a guy with no depth in lyrics


Biography

Born: October 14, 1981 in St. Louis, MO
Genre: Hip Hop/Rap
Years Active: '00s, '10s

Although he was born in St. Louis, MO, Aliaune Thiam — aka Akon — grew up in Senegal before he and his family (including his father, jazz percussionist Mor Thiam) returned to the United States and settled in New Jersey when he was seven. There he discovered hip-hop for the first time, as well as crime. He was eventually jailed but he used the time — three years, he claimed — to work on his musical ideas. Upon release, Akon began writing and recording tracks in a home studio….
