Although he could not speak specifically about the music he has been creating with Michael, Akon has recently spoken in Miami of the regard and esteem he feels for him.
No details are known about the music on the new, eagerly awaited album, or when it will be released, but Akon could scarcely contain his excitement…
“He’s incredible,” Akon said of Michael. “He’s a genius. Just to be in the same room (with Michael), I felt everything I wanted to accomplish in life has been achieved. That aura, that’s how incredible that aura is. We about to shake the world up, man. You know how you be with somebody and you can’t even explain? (The feeling) I used to sit and think, “How does somebody sell so many records and dominate a whole business genre, to a point nobody can’t be a part of that without associating with you?” The way he thinks…some artists think regional, some think national, I was thinking international. He thinks planets. It’s on another level.”
It’s great to see successful artists giving Michael the respect he deserves!
