Akon collaborated with TikTok after he saw some of his older music gain popularity on the social media site.
Akon’s latest mixtape, TT Freak, marks his return to the music industry. The singer-producer released the seven-track project on Friday in association with TikTok (December 2).
For the mixtape, the Senegalese-American musician collaborated with several musicians, including Atlanta rapper AMIRROR and Ghanaian producer Nektunez.
French singer John Mamann is featured on the album’s title track, which Akon previewed on YouTube earlier today. It has an extremely catchy fast-paced groove.
The record was produced with assistance from Dawty Music, Mamann, and NEO. The San Diego-based production duo has a reputation for working with well-known musicians like French Montana, Wale, and Ne-Yo in the past.
As his older music gained popularity on the platform, the “Locked Up” singer teamed up with TikTok.
