Akon Plays Pop Associated, Talks Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Gwen Stefani, Whitney Houston & More

457fdac580264a73e68a4d97c66b5102 Akon Plays Pop Associated, Talks Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Gwen Stefani, Whitney Houston & More

While Akon stopped by the Idolator to discuss his philanthropic work with the Akon Lighting Africa Project and Peace One Day, we also made a point of asking him about the sheer volume of other artists the smooth crooner has collaborated with over the last 10 years. After all, this is the guy who signed Lady Gaga to his Kon Live label, sang the memorable wooh hoo hook on Gwen Stefani‘s “Sweet Escape,” worked with Michael Jackson on several songs before the pop king’s death and penned tracks for Whitney Houston‘s final album I Look To You.

We also couldn’t help singling out one of the hands-down best collabs Akon has ever done (in our humble opinion) — Kardinall Offishall‘s 2007 smash “Dangerous” — and getting the full scoop on how the song came together.

Above, watch Akon as he rattles off the first thing that comes to mind with each artist we mention. Then head below to watch him school us on his hit “Dangerous.”

Get an eyeful of even more pop music coverage, from artist interviews to exclusive performances, on Idolator’s YouTube channel.
