I got to meet Akon last spring when he stopped by the office, and immediately my respect level for him increased exponentially. I wasn’t star struck at all, but his presence really made me happy. He knew my colleague Simone, yet wasn’t bougie at all and still gave me a big hug upon introduction. Wish I had a picture with him!
Why am I talking about Akon? Because I’m sitting at a Starbucks in Times Square with my headphones on listening to his Freedom album on iTunes. Freedom is probably one of my favorite albums of all time. Every song is catchy and gets me so amped. For a while, I used the songs as a tool to keep me motivated.
My favorite is Keep You Much Longer, what’s yours?
