Snapshot: Akon – ‘The Koncrete’ mixtape cover art

After a series of pushbacks on his forthcoming full-length, Stadium, Akon will be releasing a mixtape called The Koncrete this weekend to whet his fans’ appetite for some new Konvict Muzik.

The crooner’s last release, 2008’s Freedom, was a moderate success, with four singles reaching the Billboard charts in America. The album was much more successful internationally, achieving gold sales in Australia and platinum sales in the UK, Canada and the Middle East.

The Koncrete mixtape drops April 14 at 1pm EST via LiveMixtapes.
