‘Smack That’ singer, precious metals miner and alleged multiple wives haver Akon is working on a Reggae album, reports Billboard magazine. Akon flew to Jamaica recently to work with Steven, Damian and Julian Marley on ‘Stadium’, his fourth studio album, and was so amped and inspired by his experience that he’s decided to release a full album of reggae songs.
“It was such an honour to be in that environment and be inspired by it ,” Akon told Billboard. “They had me writing three to four songs a day because I was so amped!”
Akon also said he hopes to reunite with the Marleys when he records his album.
“I always said to myself, ‘When I get to that position when I can do an all-reggae album, I would love to do it,’ and those guys are the best to do it with,” Akon said.
