Having sold more than 3 million copies worldwide of his debut CD “Trouble,” the multi-faceted star, Akon, proved that convicts can turn their lives around and make good. The Konvict/Upfront/SRC/Universal Motown artist continues his road to success with his sophomore CD, “Konvicted,” taking the #2 spot on The Billboard 200 chart and selling more than 283K units in its first week of release. Not only is Akon a top-selling singer, but he wrote and produced all but one of the songs on his album, putting him in a small club of extraordinary singers/songwriters/producers (Elton John, Mariah Carey, Kanye West). To top that, Akon is the #1 Hip Hop/Rap artist on iTunes and MySpace and he is the most searched artist on AOL. The Senegalese artist is currently promoting “Konvicted” across the country with appearances and performances. Akon just recently appeared on the American Music Awards performing his hit singles “Smack That” and “I Wanna Love You” featuring Snoop Dogg. He has also performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and will perform “Smack That” on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” on November 23rd.
