Product Description

Multi-platinum singer, songwriter, producer, Akon burst out of the starting gates with the winningly melodic and compulsively danceable single "Right Now (Na Na Na)." The song is sparking up the charts in a record-setting pace that's familiar to Akon's millions of fans worldwide and it is the lead track from Akon's third album, Freedom. The infectious song is the #1 Most Added at Rhythm Crossover radio stations in its first week of release. Freedom features collaborations with Hip-Hop's "man of the hour" Lil Wayne ("I'm So Paid") and Akon's platinum artist T-Pain ("Holla Holla"). Akon broke out on the music scene in 2004 with the platinum album Trouble that featured singles, "Locked Up" and "Lonely."

I love Akon and this is the kind of CD that you can just let play without skipping too many tracks ...

Refined lyrics meets a maturing artist Dec 2 2008
By Alan Huynh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Akon has grown with each new album release, while his sound has evolved to the satisfaction and dissatisfaction of his fans, Freedom will no doubt be remembered as the turning point in Akon's career where he evolves from a hip hop artist to a bonafide entertainer.

Freedom does not contain the harsh or explicit lyrics found in "I Still Kill" or the infamous "I Want to **** You" Instead the album is filled with sounds familiar to "Put the Blame on Me" which was lyrically powered rather than over the top production.

That does not mean there are no upbeat club hits on this album, Troublemaker and Beautiful will keep everyone on the dance floor moving. Akon's previous love ballad "Don't Matter" is replaced with a lyrically driven "Be With You" that possess a crisper production that will no doubt lead to some slower sensual dance moves when the DJ decides to spin the track.

The released singles Right Now and I'm So Paid are great but are drastically different. Freedom plays with this contrast in sound by providing many catchy radio friendly songs that are subtly different but possess deeper lyrics than found in past Akon albums.

With all the radio friendly songs you'll find yourself humming to many of these songs during the day, therefore, making it buy you won't regret this holiday season.

I want that old thing back Dec 9 2008
By M. Ottersboeck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's kinda sad to admit that "johnknapik" is right! Akon has moved into a direction many of his long-time fans will not appreciate.

In his first two CDs he concentrated on HipHop heavy beats and songs about Life&struggle&love, where his unique voice really had its place. But currently Akon has moved to Pop-Dancefloor beats and sing-along love songs which kinda doesn't seem right...

Of course the songs are very catchy, but I don't expect that kind of music from Akon. Sorry, but I'll skip this one and wait for Akon to find back to form (same is true for Kanye and Common).

Akon is now among my most beloved artist Feb. 11 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I discovered Akon after listening to 'Lonely' for the first time from his Trouble album and I was intrigued. I continued listening to him on and off afterwards and while I counted him as one of the better rappers, I admit that I didn't like him completely.

With this album, things changed, however. This is among the best album I have ever heard.

More than anything else, I believe I can contribute my love of the album to the fact that it's practically an entire album of love songs. It's not that I'm addicted to love songs, but Akon seems to have a knack for singing really good love song (I had loved his all of his previous love songs). Furthermore, another really important thing that added to this album is that almost every single track is something you can really dance to. The entire album consists of songs that would do extremely well on radio/TV (something which the vast majority of albums can't claim).

Truthfully, the album was not something I had expected from a rap artist like Akon. I had expected, well, a rap album, but 'Freedom' isn't really a rap album. The songs here fits more into the 'techno/dance' category. One would think it would be highly difficult for a rap artist to make such a transition, but Akon does it *beautifully*.

Almost every song in the album contains catchy music, good lyrics, and importantly, they don't all sound alike. The moment a song begins, you can tell instantly what track it is simply because the music is that distinct.

Ultimately, let me get to the point: This is Akon's best album so far and one of the finest albums from any artists I've heard. For those thinking of purchasing the album, spend the money, and fall in love with such solid tracks as Right Na Na Na, Beautiful, Keep You Much Longer, Be With You, and Sunny Day. The album is worth every single penny and I hope to see such quality from Akon in the future.

Meh... Dec 8 2008
By John J. Knapik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Akon's sound was steeped in hip-hop beats and edgy lyrics. Freedom is a departure from that sound into a realm of artists that your mother would enjoy (Seal, Leona Lewis). Freedom isn't bad, it just isn't the least bit compelling. This is very watered-down R&B that is sure to cross over to the pop charts...and don't be surprised if you hear Akon on your mom's Mix station.

Akon Appeal For Most Dec 18 2008
By D-man - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've always enjoyed most of Akon's collaborations with other artists, but I've rarely thought he had a solid enough list of songs compelling enough to buy any of his previous albums. Freedom is different ... and his best yet. It's not as graphic as perhaps the "explicit" label suggests, but it's very listenable for adults who like hip-hop and rap that isn't pure hardcore anger. Seems as if Akon's been trying to lighten up a little, and he has with this song mix which recount more stories of love, lust, and life stories than anything. I respect his recognition of Katherine Dunham on the track Freedom too. Give it a try, you'll like it.
