Akon announced that he’s going to be dropping a 5 disc album called Stadium. Every disc will be a different genre from Pop, to Urban, to Euro, to Island and World representing each disc. He announced that back in January, and it’s about to be a year and all we’ve heard is crickets.
However, we have heard two new songs from Akon, the Migos assisted ‘Whole Lot‘ and ‘Stick Around‘ with Matoma. He is back for more with an official single called ‘Want Some’ which he premiered earlier today on Ebro’s Beats1 and is now available for stream below!
The singer has also just signed a new deal with Atlantic Records after leaving Universal Music where he’s been since 08. According to HHNM, Akon will release only 4 genres of his Stadium album — world, house, urban and reggae through his soon to be launched app, also named Stadium.
In Akon’s app fans will be able to stream the album and buy tickets to his shows and merchandise etc. The last piece of the album, Pop will arrive in March next year in standard formats on multiple digital and physical outlets through Warner Music Group’s Atlantic Records.
For now, check out “Want Some” and let us know what you think!
