Akon 'Beautiful' Free Music Video

Aliuane Thiam, better known as Akon, is a multi-award winning chart-topping sensation who has swept the R&B, Rap and Pop crossover scenes. Akon is a Senegalese-American hip hop singer-songwriter and producer who has created hits such as 'Smack That', 'Lonely' and 'Locked Up'. 'Locked Up' was Akon's first main chart-topper and came from his debut album 'Trouble' in 2004. 'Locked Up' and much of his work has been heavily influenced by Akon's time in jail and his resulting vow to stay on the right side of the law. However, it became popular – like the rest of Akon's music – because of its catchy hook, interesting lyrics and positive message. In fact his music has become so popular, he is frequently one of the most searched artists on free music video websites.

Since his emergence onto the international music scene, Akon has not only contributed to and produced numerous top-charting songs, but he has also founded two record labels, Konvict Muzik and Kon Live Distribution. In his capacity as a producer, he has worked with many artists including Leona Lewis, Gwen Stefani and Flo Rida. As the owner of Konvict Muzik label, he has encouraged lots of young acts such as Lady Gaga and Colby O'Donis and has also expanded into contributing to lots of other artists' songs. He is currently accredited with almost 160 guest appearances including 'Sweet Escape' with Gwen Stefani, 'Wanna be Startin' Something' with Michael Jackson and 'Beautiful' with Colby O'Donis and Kardinal Offishall. Now on his third album, Freedom, Akon has released two singles, 'Right Now (Ha Ha Ha)' and 'I'm So Paid' with Young Jeezy and Lil' Wayne. His newest single 'Beautiful', a collaboration with label-mates Colby O'Donis and the Kardinal, has become his eighth top twenty hit as a leading artist and his seventeenth top twenty overall. Although massively successful in its original English, the song is soon to be translated in Portuguese in a collaboration with a Brazilian rapper and will also be made into a Latin American duet with Mexican singer Dulce Maria.

Free Music Video - Akon 'Beautiful'

The song 'Beautiful' is very similar to a lot of Akon's previous single releases as it has a great beat and bassline; a perfect summer club track for dancing to. The lyrics are easy to pick up and the hook, like most of his songs, is incredibly catchy. The music video, however, is different from Akon's usual style of video as it is very slick and sophisticated. Following the recent trend in rap, Akon is sharply dressed as are Colby and the Kardinal who are all wearing suits. A.A. Rahman also makes an appearance in the video, but the main focuses are all the different kinds of women. Unusually for a rap artist, Akon has included a lot of classically beautiful and stunning women in couture fashion instead of the usual half-clad buxom models. With such a great song and a great video it is not surprising that many free music video sites have had a lot of hits for Akon's 'Beautiful'.
