Akon Urges Other Artists To Expand Their Musical Tastes

Akon believes the secret to his success is his love for all kinds of different musical styles, and he urges other artists to not be scared to experiment with other sounds in their music and song writing.

Akon says unlike other singers, he has a wide listening taste which improves his song writing.

“There are people who only listen to urban music and nothing outside of that,” he explained. “They don’t listen to reggae, rock, dance or house music. To me that’s bad for the music business and artists.”

Akon also went on to tell Vibe magazine that he’s excited by the few artists who are daring enough to experiment with new sounds. “Is Euro pop hurting R&B? No,” he shared. “I think it’s great that people want to try new things. Why limit yourself? The world is bigger than just America.”
