Konvicted Album Review

It took five singles and more then twelve months for Akon's debut, Trouble, to finally become certified as a platinum selling album. However, history will not repeat itself with Konvicted, Akon's highly anticipated follow-up album, which should reach the same marking point in less than half the time. Currently raising eyebrows just two singles into the masterpiece, Konvicted resumes where Trouble left off.

Akon offers infectious hooks, catchy bridges and the ability to skip from R&B (Never Took The Time) to Hip-Hop (Blown Away) and over to World music (Mama Africa), without showcasing any as a personal specialty over another. The current singles (Smack That featuring Eminem and I Wanna Love You featuring Snoop Dogg) display Akon’s skill during collaboration, but make no mistake: the album is all AKON. The most masterful of which have Akon belting out his own backup vocals and requiring the assistance of nobody (well maybe an engineer, but he may do that too).

Konvicted took Akon longer than expected to complete, after his production and song writing abilities garnered him work as one of the most sought after talents in the industry. Work on upcoming material from Young Jeezy, Gwen Stefani and even Elton John required the creative process for Akon’s own album to take a temporary back seat. Temporary, the key word of course, since the end result of his patience is a complete album with as many single choices as their include tracks.
