Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter, producer and international phenomenon Akon returns with his sophomore album. Akon released his debut album Trouble in 2004, which included the singles 'Locked Up (Remix)' (featuring Styles P), 'Lonely', 'Bananza (Belly Dancer)', 'Pot Of Gold' and 'Ghetto'. 'Locked Up' reached the Top 10 in the U.S. and the Top 5 in the UK, and was written after Akon was jailed for three years for armed robbery. Recently, he gained more popularity after being featured in the song 'Soul Survivor' with rapper Young Jeezy and then with his own artist, T-Pain. Akon also has his own record label, called Konvict Muzik. Konvicted features Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Styles P and T-Pain. Debut ''Smack That'' video is directed by Benny Boom. Primarily self-produced by Akon, Konvicted challenges all previous assumptions. Akon's writing is prolific and the tracks are beautiful. Konvicted is an album full of smash, classic hits.
If R&B has been drifting lately, Konvicted proves Akon's ready to take the wheel: His reedy voice encapsulates Jersey, Jamaica, and continents beyond (Africa, most notably); his wait-a-beat delivery enhances his high-flying hooks; and his attitude mulches thuggery and womanizing into something worth spreading around. If that's not indication enough he's on a roll, consider the accolades Konvicted is racking up--a Grammy nod for "Smack That" (featuring Eminem), a No. 1 single with "I Wanna Love You" (featuring Snoop Dogg), sales in the millions. To count Akon a musical groundbreaker, though, you have to be ready to embrace a new genre that might take Brian McKnight and Usher fans a little getting used to: hardcore R&B. Both "I Wanna Love You" and "Smack That" don't shy away from raunch, and tracks like "Tired of Runnin'" and "Shake Down" bring on an MC edge that belongs more to the street than to the bedroom. Still, count on Akon to convince holdouts he's worth hearing; both his message and his manner bear the marks of the unstoppable. --Tammy La Gorce
