Lady Gaga‘s latest single, “Born This Way,” is set to premiere tomorrow and Akon says fans can expect to hear some very meaningful lyrics.
As producer/collaborator with Lady Gaga, Akon knows a thing or two about her music.
“Gaga says a lot of stuff in her records,” he told PopEater. “But I know these parents and critics are not really listening to her lyrics. I know that for a fact. She’s singing about a lot of adult subject matter. She’s not just making dance records. Unfortunately, people pay more attention to what she is wearing.”
But Akon says Gaga’s new album, Born This Way, will help force them to listen!
“I think Born This Way is the kind of record that if you are really paying attention you will get the full depth of Gaga as a songwriter. Sometimes, the creative image hides the element of her lyrical content,” he says. “That’s why she wanted to give people a better idea of what she was saying outside of her image when she dropped those lyrics.”
So what’s the status of the Born This Way album?
“We are finishing up the album now,” Akon shared.’ “She’s about to go back on tour later this year. There’s a lot going on.”
