“Locked Up” mastermind, Akon is back with a brand new single which he titles “Get Money.” He scores the feature of Puerto Rican singer and rapper, Anuel AA on this one. It has been ages since we heard anything off the stash and stables of Akon whose real name is Aliaune Damala Badara Akon Thiam.
However, it is not even as if he has been quiet as he has been creating the buzz on the international stage with the launch of his “Akon Lighting Africa” venture in 2014. The goal of this campaign is to provide African Nations with solar energy in a bid to give back to his roots.
To this length and extents, he has been quite busy on the continent; bringing social awareness on a range of issues as well as several collaborations with artists from the cradle of human civilization. Only thing is the fact that Akon is now set to launch a new project to be titled “El Negreeto;” his first musical outing since his 2008 “Freedom” project.
“Get Money” now feels like the appetizer and starter off the upcoming feast and fest and it shows the diversity Akon looks to have amassed on his sojourn away from his earlier releases such as “Mama” and “Lonely.”
Even though “Get Money” is about the universal message of the hustle for the bank, paper and the moolah, the support of Anuel AA gives the record a Latino feel to exciting acclaim. The industry is definitely a lot better off with the golden and glittering vocals which stood Akon out as one of the finer performers of the 2000s.
This one is a bout of motivation and inspiration for success that Akon looks to be about these days and you do not want to miss out of its flavour and melody. Simply cop a dose, then be sure to share your thoughts and opinion in the comments section below.
