It’s been quite some time since Akon has left his “King of Hooks” throne vacant. Many have come and gone since, none really having the staying power that the R&B singer had in his prime. Akon has released a handful of decent tracks in the meantime, but unfortunately a lot more duds. Could his latest release mark a positive trajectory in his return?
“Want Some” features DJ Chose… Before the EDM alarms in your head go off, it’s thankfully not a David Guetta-type cringer. The new track is actually a somewhat slow track with some radio-enticing pop elements. It uses a formula that has helped ‘Kon achieve success in the past.
It’s unclear if “Want Some” will appear on (one of the five versions of) Akon’s Stadium project or not, but you can listen to the new song below.
