Oct 22, 2010 - With over 40 Billboard Hot 100 songs and 300 guest appearances with the industry’s biggest names under his belt, Akon makes his first appearance on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show with the appropriately-titled, “Angel”— the first single off his upcoming upcoming Upfront/Konvict/SRC/Universal Motown album, Stadium.
The six-time Grammy nominated singer/songwriter/producer rose to prominence with the hit single “Locked Up” from his debut album, Trouble. His second album, Konvicted, earned him three Grammy Award nominations for singles “Smack That” and “I Wanna Love You”. Akon is the first solo artist to hold both the #1 and #2 spots simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 charts twice. He’s also the founder of two record labels, KonLive and Konvict—home to such talents as Lady Gaga and T-Pain—and the youth-focused charity, Konfidence Foundation. Tune in for Akon’s performance on Tuesday, November 30 at 10/9C on CBS.
