Last Time it was Lil Wayne, Now I’m focused on Akon, read about it after the jump.
I never thought I would have Akon on Flop City, just because he’s never really had any bad tracks, it seems like every time he dropped a single it went big and every time an album came out it sold good, their even was a point when Akon was on everybody’s track because without him you wouldn’t have had a hit, but things have changed fast huh Mr. Konvict.
He’s had 3 amazing albums, but once he came into his 4th solo studio album he hasn’t had success with singles at all, his first offering was “Angel” it got received well but it didn’t take off at all, maybe it was the lack of promotion from the record label. They didn’t shoot a video for the track either, the album was scheduled for a December release in 2010 but it got pushed back to a later release date and then eventually it had no release date which means it was the lack of songs from him.
The 2nd offering was “Give It To Em” featuring Rick Ross, this track was just horrible, not only did it have Rick Ross on the track which I’m getting sick and tired of but it didn’t have that Akon feel to it, Angel received a better reception then “Give It To Em”, they didn’t bother to shoot a video for that either, after this I felt like Akon had lost it.
Then 3rd offering from his new album was “Take It Down Low” featuring Chris Brown, I thought this track was gonna take off because of Chris Brown but it didn’t and got received as bad as “Give It To Em”.
I think Akon can eventually come back, he’s never had bad hits like this before, Their really is no reason for Akon to even make anymore music because of the successful artists he’s signed like the major pop star “Lady Gaga” and the autotune beast “T-Pain”, so his money is straight because of the artists he’s signed but I would love to see Akon drop more music.
What do you guys think? Has he lost it? Will he eventually go downhill? or is it just a flu?
