Akon will release five albums this year.
The 'Lonely' hitmaker has announced plans for a multi-genre project, entitled 'Stadium', which will be comprised of a number of LPs, each in a different style, released over the course of the next 12 months.
He tweeted: ''Thru out this long wait, there has been fans who stuck with me. This Album is for you! 5 Albums 5 genres equaling STADIUM. (sic)''.
Akon - who hasn't released an album since 2008's 'Freedom' - has shared a track from each record on his official website.
'To Each His Own' will feature on a pop album, while Euro fans can enjoy a song called 'Bounce', which also features Niko the Kid.
On his island album, Akon has teamed up with Damian Marley for a song named 'Just a Man', while the world album's first track is called 'Feeling a Nikka' and features D'Banje.
Finally, the urban album is lead by a song titled 'Whole Lot'.
The artwork featured on his website shows the five records all have the same artwork - an image of the topless singer performing for a crowd - but in different colours.
