Akon Talks Tour, Collabo With Whitney Houston And Michael Jackson

by admin ·

Much too hot to slow down, Akon’s heating up the charts and getting ready to fire up stages around the globe.

His world tour, scheduled to jump off in 2007, will start in Africa, hit Europe and then finally move to the US. Supporting acts have yet to be announced.

Fresh from a retro-flavored appearance on the title track of Gwen Stefani’s latest set, The Sweet Escape, the reigning collaboration king is also working with Whitney Houston on her comeback set.

“I’m working on more uptempo records for her,” he told Billboard.com. “She’s been through a lot and has a dark history. So we’ve got to make the album brighter because she’s come out of the cave now. She wants a celebration. She needs to come back to the old Whitney we remember.”

There is also a rumor that Akon may be working with Michael Jackson.

“Right now that’s in the air,” he added. “I can’t talk about it.”
