Product Overview

Senegalese-born R&B singer Akon returns with the follow-up to his highly acclaimed debut TROUBLE. The talented vocalist shows he's able to juggle a few different R&B styles from seductive love songs ("I Wanna Love You") to deeper dirges of self-reflection ("The Rain") to heartfelt tributes to his homeland ("Mama Africa"). Konvicted also has its share of hardcore hip-hop, with guest appearances from Styles-P and Snoop Dogg; Eminem even checks in on the official club hit, "Smack That."

Artist Overview
Senegal-via-New Jersey rapper/vocalist/producer Akon stormed the hip-hop/R&B world in 2004 with a string of hits that showcased the performer's fresh amalgam of reggae, rap, and contemporary urban styles. A somewhat checkered past and a series of collaborations with the likes of Styles P, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem lent Akon a healthy dose of street cred, while his innate musical ability (he's the son of jazz percussionist Mor Thiam), strong business sense, and ear for a hook made him an instant hitmaker. Akon released his sophomore album, KONVICTED, in 2006.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.126) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Akon's silky, instantly recognizable vocals have made him an in-demand hook dude..."
Spin (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]natches of melodica, strutting piano, and lightly toasted reggae grooves keep the album firmly rooted."
Entertainment Weekly (p.127) - "With his sensitive-guy croon and ex-con vocabulary, Senegal-raised singer Akon is the R&B thug of the moment."
CMJ (p.40) - "Akon is an absolutely magnetic vocalist..."
Vibe (p.111) - "The album's a collection of immaculately constructed songs....Akon creates a comforting consistency..."

Reviews
ReviewSource Rolling Stone
Review While crooners like Usher and Ne-Yo sing to the ladies, Akon sings for the guys -- mostly about wanting to bend the ladies over. That raunchiness and Akon's silky, instantly recognizable vocals have made him an in-demand hook dude -- he guested on more than forty tracks this year. The singer-producer minces no words on tracks like "I Wanna F*** You" and "Smack That," featuring Eminem, but shows some range on more reflective cuts like "Mama Africa" -- a dancehall-inflected love letter to the Senegal-raised MC's home continent.
