Best Akon Songs of All Time – Top 10 Tracks

Akon Details

Electronic, Pop, R&B, Rap / Hip-Hop

After winning music fans over with his 2003 multi-platinum debut Trouble, Senegalese singer Akon returns with more stories from his personal journey via his sophomore CD Konvicted. If Trouble was Akon’s ode to redemption (before his music career took off he served time for car theft), Konvicted picks up at rebirth. His mission now is to reinvent himself through his salvation - music.

"The son of accomplished jazz musician Mor Thiam, Akon was introduced to varied musical styles early on. “I grew-up listening to all kinds of music. Obviously I love soul songs, but I also like mixing in other types of music,” Akon confesses. “For every Stevie Wonder track I’ve listened to, there is another by Steely Dan that helped shape me as an artist.”

Although the hit single “Locked Up” earned him street credibility, the artist’s multifaceted sensibilities are evident on his second album. Akon produced and wrote all but one song on Konvicted. The album features tracks recorded with Eminem (the first single, “Smack That”), Snoop Dogg (“I Want to Love You”) and Styles P. (who laced Akon’s debut hit single, “Locked Up”). Konvicted balances streetwise swagger, studio originality and common sense to create one of the most honest releases of 2006.

“Smack That,” is a deliriously energetic song that has all the ingredients of a masterful club banger and features the aggressive rhymes of eight-mile wordsmith Eminem. Having met Em soon after working with Obie Trice on “Snitch” (the song, which was used on the hit series CSI; an episode Akon also appeared in), the two became fast friends. “I knew I wanted Eminem to be on the track, but he is very careful about appearing on too many other people’s songs. When he called and said he was ready to go into the studio, I knew it was a blessing. I was on the first flight to Detroit,” says Akon

Another stand-out song on Konvicted is the anti-gangsta track “Runnin’.” Recalling the sincerity of soul legend Curtis Mayfield’s timeless Super Fly soundtrack, Akon neo-blues recalls the struggle of stepping away from the game, when he sings, “I’m tired of running from the law.” Ironically, the melodic piece was written while Akon was still doing jail time. “This is a song you can feel, because it’s that real,” Akon shares. “And, I meant every word of it.”

Working in the tradition of pioneer R. Kelly, Akon moves deftly from hard-knock stories to the dance-floor to inspirational ballads; the verses are full of nimble sing-rapping…with Akon multi-tracking his voice to sing his own backing vocals.” “The song “Gangsta Bop” on Konvicted is a track that could definitely be in a movie,” says Akon. With its cinematic appeal and blaxploitation thrills, “Gangsta Bop” is captivating. “My goal is not to glorify street life, but gangstas are people too. They have families and children, and I’m trying to shed some light on that. I can’t tell people what not to do, but I can be a role model.” Akon also teams up with his homeboy T-Pain on the breezy “I Can’t Wait,” the singer has crafted a finger snapping funky love song that blends jazz and big beats.

Still, while Akon’s lyrics are tight, he proves to be innovative on a production level as well. Unafraid of lacing pop music elements like live piano and the zigzag of violins, the haunting ballad “Never Took the Time” is a winner. “When I’m composing songs, I try to be more to the left musically,” Akon reveals. “There is a love and passion I have for trying to create different sounds. In music right now, it’s up to the producers to push for diverse styles.”

Working out of his own Koncast Studios in Atlanta, perhaps the crowning jewel on Konvicted is the powerful “Africa.” A percussion heavy anthem “dedicated to his homeland,” Akon’s lyrics are on point as he discusses various issues from slavery to skin color. One of my goals with the song “Africa” is to make people more aware of the continent.”

Everything fell into place for Akon when Devyne Stephens, connoisseur of artist development and CEO of Upfront Entertainment began shopping Akon’s demo and immediately received several offers from major labels. “We decided to go with Steve Rifkind and SRC/Universal Motown because Steve had the best understanding of what we were trying to achieve. Together we achieved everything we wanted and more,” says Stephens.

The deal was signed in 2003 and Trouble sold more than three million units worldwide. Impressing both music critics and the disc buying public with his well-crafted R&B and unique voice, Akon has proven himself as both a brilliant storyteller and gifted musician. His unique style was a shock to the system. In a 2004 New York Times article praised him as a “groundbreaking artist.”

In addition to his break-out single “Locked Up,” which became the barbeque jam during the summer of 2004, Akon has established himself as an in-demand guest artist and record producer (Young Jeezy, R. Kelly, Obie Trice, Elton John, Daddy Yankee, Gwen Stefani). Nominated for “Hottest Hook” at the 2005 Vibe Awards, the singer’s voice on “Soul Survivor” was a shining moment for both Jeezy and Akon. “I love collaborating with other artists. There are times when I’m in the studio with someone and the chemistry just clicks” says Akon.

Since his debut release, Akon has traveled the world and collaborated with everyone from Snoop Dogg to Ladysmith Black Mambazo. His Konvict Music imprint, which will be distributed by Interscope Records, boasts a roster that includes T-Pain and former TLC member Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas.

With the brilliance of Konvicted, label owner, singer, songwriter and producer Akon breaks down musical barriers while also validating his importance as a soul man for the new millennium. Like fine wine, Konvicted proves that Akon only gets better with time.

About Akon

An R&B singer originally from Senegal, Akon first came to America when he was seven years old. The son of well-known African percussionist Mor Thiam, he was exposed to lots of music at a young age, learning multiple instruments as a child before getting into hip-hop. His appreciation for rap music is evident on his self-titled debut album, especially in the overall production. And, unlike most of today's R&B vocalists, Akon eschews the shirtless bravado and bedroom scenarios and instead deals with inner-city strife. This focus, as well as his plaintive voice, led him to collaborate with hip-hop royalty such as Young Jeezy ("Soul Survivor"), Styles P ("Locked Up") and Eminem ("Smack That"). And while his gritty subject matter appeals to the streets, his hooks are so sweet that they may leave listeners toothless. Akon's sophomore album, 2006's Konvicted, cemented his spot as one of urban music's most important singers. Two years later, after a mix tape presciently titled Black President, he released his third official studio album, Freedom, which found him breaking out in search of broader pop accessibility.

Akon Best Songs - Akon Greatest Hits Full Album 2021

Top 10 Akon Songs

"I'm So Paid" featuring Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy - 2008

"I'm So Paid" is particularly notable for its James Bond style music video that cost over $1 million to produce. In addition to featuring the rap collaborators Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy, the clip also includes cameos from a number of artists signed to Akon's Konvict Muzik label. Akon included a shout out to Olympic track and field athlete Usain Bolt in the song after hearing that the runner likes Akon's music. "I'm So Paid" peaked at #31 on the Billboard Hot 100. It ultimately earned a platinum certification for selling more than a million copies.

"Belly Dancer (Bananza)" - 2005

The mesmerizing sound of "Belly Dancer (Bananza)" became the fourth single from Akon's debut album Trouble. It reached the top 40 in the US but did even better in the UK where it was a top 5 pop hit. The song samples "The Lunatics (Have Taken Over the Asylum)" by Fun Boy Three. "Belly Dancer (Bananza)" appears on the soundtrack for the film Fired Up!

"Beautiful" featuring Kardinal Offishall and Colby O'Donis - 2009

The slick Euro dance feel of "Beautiful" moved Akon further away from R&B and reggae beats. It features Colby O'Donis and Kardinal Offishall, two of Akon's musical proteges. For rapper Kardinal Offishall, this appearance followed his top 5 pop smash "Dangerous" which featured vocals from Akon. For Colby O'Donis, it followed both his appearance on Lady Gaga's first hit "Just Dance" and his own #14 charting single "What You Got" fetauring Akon. There is a Spanish language version of "Beautiful" that features Dulce Maria of RBD. "Beautiful" peaked inside the top 20 on the US pop chart and went all the way to #5 on the dance chart.

"Locked Up" - 2004

Akon's first single "Locked Up" has a distinctly more street feel than his later hits. That was by design. His record label wanted to break Akon as an artist on the street first and then work back toward the mainstream. The plan was a major success. "Locked Up" reached the top 10, but the follow up pop hit "Lonely" was an even bigger hit. "Locked Up" also became an international pop hit. It reached #5 on the UK pop singles chart and hit the top 15 on pop charts in both France and Germany.

"Right Now (Na Na Na)" - 2008

This song was the lead single from Akon's third album Freedom. Musically, it headed in a more distinctly club-oriented direction. "Right Now (Na Na Na)" was another top 10 hit around the world for Akon, but it failed to top the charts anywhere signaling some weakening in his commercial fortunes. "Right Now (Na Na Na)" includes elements from the song "Remember" by German-Belgian dance act The Underground Project. This song peaked at #8 on the US pop chart and went to #6 in the UK.

"Sorry, Blame It On Me" - 2007

Although it had been leaked months before, Akon's release of "Sorry, Blame It On Me" as a single seemed well timed after a series of high profile legal troubles. It followed the highly publicized incident in which he did a sexual dance in a nightclub with an underage girl. "Sorry, Blame It On Me" quickly landed in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at #7. The song was included in the deluxe reissue of the album Konvicted. Veteran R&B music video director Chris Robinson put together the clip to promote "Sorry, Blame It On Me."

"Lonely" - 2005

Although it wasn't released as his first single, reportedly the song "Lonely" is what caught the attention of the Universal Music label SRC Records and convinced them to sign Akon to a contract. The most notable element of the song is the use of sped up samples from Bobby Vinton's 1964 #1 hit single "Mr. Lonely." Bobby Vinton was given songwriting credit on "Lonely." It became Akon's first major worldwide hit going to #1 in at least 10 countries around the world and peaking at #4 in the US. "Lonely" sold more than two million copies in the US.

"Smack That" featuring Eminem - 2006

"Smack That" was Akon's first single from his second album Konvicted. A featured rap from Eminem helped turn the song into Akon's biggest hit yet peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Eminem also served as producer and co-songwriter for the recording. He first met Akon in 2006 during the recording sessions for Obie Trice's "Snitch." The song was being recorded for Eminem's Shady Records label. "Smack That" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. "Smack That" climbed to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. It reached #4 at mainstream pop radio and briefly broke into the Latin songs chart.

"I Wanna Love You" featuring Snoop Dogg - 2006

Akon's first #1 pop single in the US originally incorporated rapping from Plies. However, when Plies was arrested for illegal gun possession, Akon chose to use a rap by Snoop Dogg in order to avoid negative publicity. "I Wanna Love You" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. Later, Akon produced the single "Hypnotized" for Plies and appeared as a featured artist. It reached #14 on the Billboard Hot 100. "I Wanna Love You" crossed over to the Latin radio chart and peaked at #16.

"Don't Matter" - 2007

Akon's gently defiant reggae infused tale of forbidden love was his second consecutive #1 hit single. So far in his career this song marks Akon's commercial apex. "Don't Matter" hit the top 10 around the world. The song includes a sample from Bob Marley's 1979 recording "Zimbabwe." The bridge also includes a melody from R. Kelly's 2003 #2 charting pop hit "Ignition (Remix)." "Don't Matter" broke into the adult pop radio and Latin radio charts. It also reached #3 at mainstream pop radio. The song sold more than three million copies in the US alone.
