Akon new Album El Negreeto
AKON CELEBRATES LATIN CULTURE WITH SPANISH ALBUM RELEASE
HITS #1 ON LATIN ITUNES CHARTS WITH SUPERSTAR COLLABS!!
READIES GLOBAL MUSIC TAKEOVER WITH THREE MORE ALBUM RELEASES THIS YEAR!
(New York, NY - Monday, October 7) – As part of his Global Music Takeover, international superstar, Akon, released his highly anticipated full-length Spanish album El Negreeto this past Friday via his Akonik Label Group. In less than 24 hours, the highly anticipated project hit #1 on the APPLE Music Latin Charts, making Akon the first African American to have a #1 Latin Album. Not to mention, this is the first of four project releases the superstar will drop this year alone!
The 8-track LP includes Akon's May release "Get Money" with Anuel AA, and "Como No" ft. Becky G. El Negreeto also includes stunning collaborations with artists from a number of Latin American countries including Brazilian artist, Anitta, Puerto Rican artist Farruko, Dominican artist Fuego and of course the popular Cuban artist Pitbull. Akon played a pivotal role in the curation of this album, not only did he take his time writing, recording, and producing El Negreeto entirely in Spanish but he also teamed up with key Latin producer and Latin Grammy Award-winning artist Maffio, to ensure the album embodied and truly represented Latin culture. Additional songwriters on El Negreeto include Camilo, Erika Ender, Mau & Ricky, Jon Leone, and Iamchino.
El Negreeto kicks things off with a little bit of reggaetón, Bachata and even some merengue. Akon explores new sounds and lets creativity take over as he receives early raves about the album from fans -
"This is exactly the type of support and exposure the Latino community needs. His pronunciation is definitely on point, the beats, the collabs, this vibe, is on point. His Spanish music is so believable, it sounds so authentic." - Natalie Rivera
