Akon Says Dr. Dre Working On Dance Record
Akon provides some insight into what the good Doctor might have in store for fans.
In a video interview with the Associated Press, singer Akon revealed what Dr. Dre's next song might be like.
"Actually, that's what really excites me more about it," says Akon, initially speaking about Lady Gaga, who is signed to his label imprint. "You got some straight, hardcore Hip Hop guys actually moving into the dance realm."
"That's shocking," continued Akon, "when you got someone like Dr. Dre about to do a dance record. That's my point. That's crazy. But, in a way, it's so exciting for me because that just shows our industry is so open-minded to everything. And believe it or not, with that open-mindedness, we can create magic."
"It actually sounds great," said the singer of the unnamed Dre record. "He played it for me. I was shocked. I was like, 'Wow, that's dope!' When the world hear this, they might go crazy!"
It is unclear whether the record will be on Dr. Dre's long-awaited Detox, or whether he's simply producing it for another artist.
