The set includes collaborations with Pitbull, Anitta, and Farruko.
"The Latin culture, it's amazing," said American singer Akon earlier this year when Billboard asked him why he wants to honor Latin music with an album. Now, he's more than ready to finally release his first Spanish-language album called El Negreeto, out Friday, Oct. 4.
First, the superstar has partnered with Billboard to reveal each song included on the album today (Oct. 2).
El Negreeto contains eight tracks, produced by Maffio, and combines different Latin genres like reggaeton, bachata and merengue. The songs were written by Akon alongside Camilo, Erika Ender, Mau & Ricky, Jon Leone, and Iamchino.
