Singer Akon, is no longer absent from the scene and he’s making sure everyone knows that. The singer who once ruled the music scene after his song Ghetto became a huge hit took a breather and we wondered what happened to him. Right now, Connect is back and he’s showing the world his versatility with the upcoming release of his 3 new albums, a Latin album, an afrobeats album (you know he’s Senegalese too) and an R&B-hip-hop album.
The singer recently gave a taste of what the Latin album would sound like dropping a single off it. The new song, Como No features singer, Becky G and it’s a huge jam. The entire song is a vibe is practically gets you on your feet. The song which follows Get Money ft Anuel AA premiered on MTV Live, MTVU, and the Times Square Viacom billboards on Sept. 6.
Speaking about working with Latin artists, he said,
“It’s their time now. I’ve seen how they’ve been working for a long time to compete with a major market when they were considered underground to a domestic audience. Reggaeton has always been big — only that no one knew what it was and didn’t understand it. But people liked it. The same thing happened with reggae and house/techno music. This is time for Latin American artists to take advantage, and the younger generation is doing the job.”
