Akon is planning to end his seven-year hiatus with a new album, but this won’t be a typical release. The singer/songwriter will be dropping a five-disc album, entitled Stadium, that will be comprised of music from five different genres: urban, euro, pop, world and island.
Fans can get a preview of what to expect on his website where one track from each disc is posted. The tracks include “Feeling a Nikka” featuring D’Banje from Stadium: World, “Whole Lot” from Stadium: Urban, “Better” featuring Niko the Kid from Stadium: Euro, “To Each His Own” from Stadium: Pop and”Just a Man” featuring Stephen Marley from Stadium: Island.
The five-time Grammy nominee recently took to his Twitter to discuss the upcoming project.
“Thru out this long wait, there has been fans who stuck with me,” he posted. “This Album is for you! 5 Albums 5 genres equaling STADIUM.”
The 41-year-old said this album, which will be his fourth, has five parts because his goal was to give “every part of the world the music they could enjoy.”
No release date has been announced, but its expected to drop this year.
