- The story of Senegal born soul singer
After winning music fans over with his 2003 multi-platinum debut Trouble, Senegalese singer Akon returns with more stories from his personal journey via his sophomore CD Konvicted. If Trouble was Akon�s ode to redemption (before his music career took off he served time for car theft), Konvicted picks up at rebirth. His mission now is to reinvent himself through his salvation - music.
"The son of accomplished jazz musician Mor Thiam, Akon was introduced to varied musical styles early on. �I grew-up listening to all kinds of music. Obviously I love soul songs, but I also like mixing in other types of music,� Akon confesses. �For every Stevie Wonder track I�ve listened to, there is another by Steely Dan that helped shape me as an artist.�
Although the hit single �Locked Up� earned him street credibility, the artist�s multifaceted sensibilities are evident on his second album. Akon produced and wrote all but one song on Konvicted.
