It’s been a hot minute since we revisited any old school tracks from the Konvict Muzik days. You know, circa 2005 when the the label, now rebranded as Konvict Kartel/Konvict Kulture was founded.


A much younger Akon with the same good vibes and hustle mentality joined some incredibly beautiful women in his famous track ‘Bonanza.’


Boasting a catchy hook paired with a tune that is proven to make your hips move, it’s no wonder that 12 years later this video has earned an impressive 17 million views.



Akon has been a VERY busy man lately. Between his philanthropy, his label and his own music endeavors, the Konvict Kartel founder is always up to something. His latest project with ‘Til The Sun Rise Up’ with Bob Sinclair is an unexpected yet surprisingly uplifting and contagious track.

Of course, Akon has been working with other artists such as Sam Feldt. These two  managed to conjure up one uber successful track-another unlikely, yet awesome collab called ‘Yes’

We gotta admit-Akon is one of those artists that just keeps on giving. Literally and figuratively-he never stops thriving to do better ,consistently spreading positivity, wealth and good music.

Akon’s latest releases are dope but ‘Bonanza’-they belly dance inspiring song is still a fan favorite!

LISTEN to the throwback track UP NEXT…
