Aliaune Badara Akon Thiam, better known as Akon, is a Senegalese-American R&B recording artist and songwriter who (according to Forbes) grossed $12, $20 and $21 in 2008,09 and 10 respectively. He rose to prominence in 2004 following the release of the single “Locked Up” from his debut album “Trouble.” His second Album “Konvicted,” released in 2006 earned him a Grammy Award nomination for the single “Smack That.” Since then, he has founded two record labels, Konvict Muzik and Kon Live Distribution.

For a relatively young artist, Akon has made his name by singing hooks for other artists and credited with over 300 guest appearances and 45 Billboard Hot 100 songs. He has worked with many of the great artists including Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Quincy Jones, Eminem and Whitney Houston. He is also the first solo artist to hold both the number one and number two spots simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts twice with six Grammy Award Nominations and has produced hits for artists such as Leona Lewis, Lady Gaga and t-Pain. The later duo were actually given their short at fame by Akon.

Born in St. Louis Missouri, Akon is the son of a Senegalese percussionist Mor Thiam and grew up in and around music and plays several instruments including the djembe. He spent much of his early life and childhood split between American and Senegal until he was in high school, when he settled permanent in Newark New Jersey.

Akon’s alleged three years in prison helped him discover his music abilities and develop a deeper appreciation for his skills. Music mogul Devyne Stephens and Akon were friendly and developed gradually in to a mentorship. When the young artist lost his deal with Elektra, Stephens signed him to his own company and began grooming him professionally. The first songs recorded by Akon included Lonely, which caught the attention or SRC A&R Jerome Foster. SRC CEO Steve Rifkind and Foster flew down to Atlanta, met up with the young artist where they hit it off.

Akon's solo debut album entitled “Trouble” was released on June 29, 2004 and spawned a number of singles: “Locked up,” “Lonely,” “Belly Dancer (Bananza),” “Pot of Gold,” and “Ghetto” inspired by his three years in prison on the charge of “Grand Theft Auto.” The album is a hybrid of Akon's silky, West African-styled vocals mixed with East Coast and Southern beats, beginning with the slam of jail cell door and him uttering the word “Konvict.” In 2005, he released the single "Lonely" which reached the top five on the Billboard Hot 100, and topped the charts in Australia, UK and Germany, and his album climbed to number one in the UK in April 2005.

Akon’s second album, Konvicted was released on November 14, 2006 included collaborations with Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Styles P. Its first single "Smack That" featuring Eminem was released in August 2006 and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks. Hot on its heel was "I Wanna Love You," featuring Snoop Dogg, released in September earned Akon his first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100, topping the charts for two consecutive weeks. A third single, “Don’t Matter,” released in January 2007 was his first solo number one and second consecutive Hot 100 Billboard chart topper. "Mama Africa" was released as a European single in July 2007, making it the fourth overall single from the album. To coincide with the release of the Platinum (deluxe) edition of the album "Sorry, Blame It on Me" was the fifth single, debuted in August 2007 on the Hot 100 at number seven.

The deluxe version was released on August 28, 2007 and Konvicted debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, selling 286,000 copies in its first week and broke the one million mark in the USA with over 1.3 million copies sold worldwide after only six weeks. The album went platinum a week later and after sixteen weeks was certified double platinum. It stayed in the top twenty of the Billboard 200 for 28 consecutive weeks. On November 20, 2007, it was certified triple platinum by the RIAA, with over 3 million sold in the USA and units sold in the USA. It has sold more than 4 million copies worldwide.

Akon released his third album, “Freedom” on December 2 2008 that spawned four new singles: “Right Now (Na Na Na),” “I'm So Paid,” (featuring Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy), “Beautiful” (featuring Kardinal Offishall and Colby O'Donis) and “We Don't Care.” In what some thought was a surprising change of pace, David Guetta collaborated with Akon in “Sexy Bitch,” Akon’s first house track which became a “Summer anthem” across the globe, reachign number in 6 countries and charting in at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The track is features on Guetta’s album entitled “One Love.”

Akon’s fourth album, tentatively titled “Stadium” is currently a work in progress. Although slated for release in the first quarter of 2010, the album’s release was pushed back as it was not complete due to managerial commitments. The album’s first single, “Angel” was released on September 27, 2010 and was produced by French producer David Guetta and Akon performed the song live at the 2010 Victoria Secret Fashion show, and since then, has left everyone waiting for this next album, or another single from it.
