Flashback Friday #1 – Akon (Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara Akon Thiam)
Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara Akon Thiam (Akon reveals his full name…)
I never thought I would ever say the words “old school Akon” but thats whats up today. Some people say he’s a sell out, but today’s Akon is a star. Just about any song he’s in is a hit, and his album Akonic dropping November 23, 2010 will be huge.
We’ve recently posted a bunch of new Akon, and I’ll follow this post up with 2 more features. But I wanted to take a minute and remember what got Akon to where he is now (it sure wasn’t this). I remember when almost no one had heard of him yet back in the days of Trouble and In Your Eyes (still one of my favorite mixtapes of all time).
Well one day a few weeks ago I typed in Akon in my iTunes and hit shuffle and let it play literally all day – highly recommended. After that, I decided to put together a few of his tracks to start off our Flash Back series, so enjoy. I know there’s tons more that could have and should have been on this play list, but the fact is there’s TOO much.
