Iconic R&B Singer and global superstar Akon’s sophomore album Konvicted, now RIAA certified 6X Platinum, is available for pre-order in a 2 LP standard black vinyl edition or a special edition vinyl with a matte finish jacket and a remix of “It Don’t Matter” by producer TMXO. Additionally, the digital deluxe version also features 10 unreleased or previously unavailable tracks. The whole project is set to be released on March 4, 2022.

Akon reflected on the release, saying, “So proud of this body of work and super thankful for having the most amazing fan base worldwide that kept me alive all these years. Enjoy this collectible and pass it to the next generation.”

Originally released on November 14, 2006, Konvicted helped launch Akon into superstardom and made him a household name, debuting at No.2 on the Billboard 200 and going on to receive a 3X Platinum certification from the RIAA, with “Don’t Matter” (No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100),” “Smack That” (No.2 on the Billboard Hot 100), and “Sorry, Blame It On Me” (No.7 on the Billboard Hot 100). These hit singles also kept the album in the top 20 of the Billboard 200 for 28 consecutive weeks.

Akon began releasing music with his 2004 debut Trouble, which featured his breakthrough hits “Locked Up” and “Lonely.” After his commercial breakthrough, he founded Konvict Muzik and KonLive Distribution, helping launch the careers of T-Pain, Kardinal Official, and more. He has also focused on philanthropy with his Akon Lighting Africa, which has helped bring electricity to 15 countries of Africa.
