Biography

Although he was born in St. Louis, Aliaune Thiam, Akon grew up in Senegal before he and his family (including his father, jazz percussionist Mor Thiam) returned to the United States and settled in New Jersey when he was seven. There he discovered hip-hop for the first time. Akon began writing and recording tracks in a home studio. The tapes found their way to SRC/Universal, which eventually ...

Editorial Reviews

Konvicted LP explicit edition- Akon: 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. In 2005, he released the single Lonely (whichsamples Bobby Vinton's Mr. Lonely. The song reached the top 10 on the U.S. charts, and was #1 in both Australia andthe UK. His album also climbed to #1 in the UK in April, 2005. 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 Trouble has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide (1.4 million US). Since releasing Trouble, Akon has produced, written, and/or appeared on hit songs for Young Jeezy ''Soul Survivor'' was also written by Akon), Elton John, R. Kelly, Gwen Stefani, Beenie Man and T-Pain. Konvicted features Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Styles P and T-Pain. Debut ''Smack That'' video is directed by Benny Boom. The title Konvicted stems from Akon's awareness that people often convict him before they get a chance to know him or his music. 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 you thought you knew who Akon was, take a listen to the diversity of Konvicted and you will learn so much more about his enormous talents.

Customer Reviews

Akon's "Konvicted" is definitely an album worth adding to the collection.
Done
The album is very diverse and has all kinds of songs - I mean it's one of those albums you just listen from the beggining to the end - no skipping!
Marina Kravcova
If he could get rid of the gangsta stuff, and stick to R&B like in Dont Matter, I might like it......

Format: Audio CD
This second album from Akon is a genre-bending collection of R&B and Hip Hop tracks and lots of ballads. Singing with passion and "konviction", he returns with that unmistakable accent and international musical flavor that propelled his debut album to multi-platinum status.

The first single "Smack That" is an infectiously catchy dance track, and having a re-energized Eminem as a guest artiste won't hurt it's chances at all. The second single "I Wanna Love You" (or the version with the more explicit title) features Snoop Dogg, where Snoop is ready for a little action, and Akon is looking for a relationship, just like his pal T-Pain.

However, if R&B ballads are more your thing, there are some excellent ones on this album, such as "The Rain", "Never Took the Time" (one of the best tracks on the album), the reggae-beat "Mama Africa", "I Can't Wait", and the retro-soul track "Tired of Runnin'"

For mid-tempo fans there's the down to earth "Gangsta Bop", "Blown Away" (featuring Styles P.) and the bonus track "Gringo". If its dance tracks you're after, you'll also like "Shake Down", but this being a more introspective album there's not much room for dancing.

This album contains explicit lyrics, and the unfortunate thing is that the profanity doesn't complement an otherwise very good album. A good buy for someone who likes R & B ballads and doesn't give a #### about profanity.

I'm a white male over 50 years old, not exactly in the target market. But this guy speaks to me musically, lyrically, emotionally.

Open your mind and give Konvicted a fair listen. Akon is great!

An R&B album with a lot of urban Hip-Hop appeal. If you like Akon's sing-song style, this album is for you. He talks about more than just picking up women, that is just the club bangin' singlesw/ Slim Shady and Snoop. His album goes all over the place (sad to happy and every emotion in between) and seems 'real', not a formula type album. I'd recommend it.

Senegalese-American Akon (Actually born in St. Louis) came from nowhere 2 years ago and scored Multi Platinum with his debut"Trouble" and had many single hits like prison anthem "Locked Up" love song cover "Lonely" and "Ghetto". Eventually Akon appeared on loads of other artists albums and almost became an established artist all of sudden. Akon most significant quality is his versability as a musician. He got a very un-orthodox voice that is easy to notice and he's both a rapper and a singer(perhaps he should stick to singing?) and he came out as a man with a troubled past just like 50 Cent, The Game and others. Akon spent time in prison which many of his songs are also about. Thus, Akon was interesting enough 2 years ago even if he's album "Trouble" was only decent. Now, 2 years later we all got higher expectations of Akon, he's appeared on countless of other albums and even produced songs on his own. So what is the verdict?

"Konvicted" that further deals with his time in prison (Shake Down) and macho thug life (Blown Away, Smack That, Gangsta Bop) and from time to time some love songs also (where Akon is best) but the album seems to pick up where "Trouble" left off. There are no major surprises, Akon do what he can to not dissapear and he gets help from the likes of Master P, Eminem and Snoop Dogg in form of guest appearances. None of the appearances are anyting special though and I'm a little surprised that no female artist is feautured. The Snoop duet "I Wanna Love You" is called "I Wanna F*ck You" on the explicit version and is embarrasing lyrically, although Snoop's lyrics are the same on both versions. "The Rain" seems to deal with how it is to be a celebrity and is ok, however like I said before, Akon shines most on love-ballads without guests where he sings and not raps.

After Akon's first album Trouble (although there were a lot of albums released in 2004 with that title), I really didn't think he would have a lasting impression because a substantial career as a hardcore R&B singer is not an easy task (just ask TQ). But his latest album Konvicted is quite the improvement.

For one thing, the established rappers that guest on here do much better performances than the unknowns that filled the last album. Here, you'll find nice additions to already quality songs from the likes of Snoop Dogg ("I Wanna Love You") and Eminem ("Smack That" -- but what is Em doing on a song about sex?), as well as another collaboration with Styles P ("Blown Away"). But Akon also does a good job by himself, as evidenced on the #1 hit "Don't Matter" and his tribute to his homeland, "Mama Africa".

But one thing that does cause problems is when Akon tries a little too hard NOT to be hardcore. Case in point: "Never Took the Time" might be suitable had it been sung by any other artist, but from Akon, it seems like it came out of left field, especially how he breaks it down at the final chorus. And "Tired of Runnin'" has him talking about being sick of the gangster lifestyle, which seems to contradict the rest of the album. Speaking of that, "Gangsta Bop" is lazy.

While not a flawless album, Konvicted shows that Akon has some promise after all. If you can stand to have your R&B not 100% radio-friendly, then give it a try.
