IGN Music asked: One last thing, and I’m sure you’ve been asked this a million times, but what was it like working with Michael Jackson?
Akon: Aw, man, that was a blessing. Literally, I learned so much just from a conversation with him. He is a genius, man, I mean like literally. I can understand his success just by having a basic conversation with him. I can see why he was so big and why he is a legend today and will always have an impact when it comes to the pop world because of his contributions. It’s just so crazy because sometimes you never really know what’s in the person’s mind until you have a basic, every day, heart to heart conversation with them. You know what I mean?
