Akon looks to score his fourth straight #1 single with the release of Mama Africa off his near triple platinum album, Konvicted. With a slightly tweaked beat and a guest spot from 50 Cent, the remix has a strong African vibe and is just as catchy as any of its predecessors. While Akon has recently received minor public scorn for dancing with an underage girl on stage at one of his international concerts, there is no denying his breadth as an artist and uncanny ability to reach so many listeners with one unique sound.
