Update: Click “Watch Now” above to view Akon’s Gil Green-directed “Hurt Somebody” video.
Proven hit-maker Akon is back with his latest promo single…and he is going to Hurt Somebody if it doesn’t go to the top of the charts. Jerry Wonda and Swizz Beatz (along with Arden Altino) collaborated on the track’s production, providing Akon with a very bass heavy, mainstream-friendly beat that’s sure to get some of those aforementioned spins. On the mic, Akon’s trademark relaxed style works well, along with a solid verse from Bad Boy‘s latest signing, French Montana. While Hurt Somebody is not yet attached to Akon’s long-long-awaited next album, The DJBooth will be sure to update you as soon as an official release date comes down.
