Jackson Calls On Akon's Help For Chart Comeback

MICHAEL JACKSON is looking towards the top of the US charts as he plans a major comeback - he's asked R+B star AKON to help him return to the top. Jackson has been working extensively with THE BLACK EYED PEAS star WILL.I.AM on his comeback album and now he's planning a meeting with Senegalese star Akon, who currently holds America's number one spot with DON'T MATTER and features on GWEN STEFANI's number two hit THE SWEET ESCAPE. The pair were supposed to meet up in Las Vegas last week (ends30MAR07) but previous commitments Akon had made to his charity foundation for African kids forced the R+B star to call off his date with the King Of Pop. Akon is now hoping to meet with Jackson before the end of April (07) - and he already has big plans for the superstar's comeback. He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I'm excited because I think it's gonna be magic when we get together. "All the stuff that he's going through, that he's been through the past two years, the stuff that's been out in the media... the stuff that hasn't been out, I think he needs to just take all that (and) put it in his records. It's a big story. "Nobody's ever really heard Mike's story... If he takes that and accepts what's been out there and expresses his opinion, express his feelings, express what he felt on a record I think it'd take his whole album to a whole 'nother level because the album now becomes a soundtrack of his life from that point to this point and that's something people are gonna want to know about."
