gwen stefani akon collaboration

Akon and Gwen are working together on her new latest album The Sweet Escape, and as for Akon, this was a unique experience “a challenge”. Why? Because he had to completely change his trademark sound.  Although he did admit it was a nice experience and a good change for him and was amazed by the instant musical chemistry between them.

He says,

“She was definitely one of the ones that surprised me, because I didn’t even think she was listening to my type of music. “Sweet Escape was definitely one of those tracks that was a challenge. I had to switch my whole style up and make a record that would cater to her. The chemistry was incredible in the studio.
