He recently previewed a few songs in NY and here’s what Billboard had to say:
“The seven songs played off the album mixed call-and-response hooks, heavy percussion and Auto-Tuned vocals, with “Give It To ‘Em” tweaking Akon’s singing until it emerges almost unrecognizable in the chorus. “Drop Down Low,” “Hold You” and “Be Me” continued the uptempo dance vibe, with Akon playfully singing on the latter track, ‘Life’s a bitch, and yes I love her/I wouldn’t trade her for no other.'”
Here’s a few leaks from that, as well as a few other features and releases, all of them with that classic Akon that basically never sounds. All are upbeat and party worthy.
