I Wanna Love You

The most melodious music I have ever heard
This type of music is made for true lovers. I love this. This just touched my heart, and my friend sings this for me.
The best song I have ever heard should be in the top 10 list

Very high quality sound the best voice I have ever heard
The best song in the world

Don’t Matter

This track was released in 2007. It was a good song, although the message brought contradictory views on polygamy. When such a message is passed on by a male artist, on keeping a relationship going, it becomes more interesting to listen.

Back when Akon spoke of things he truly cared about, and it showed in the song. Unique lyrics and a fitting beat

How is this not in the top 5? Much better than Right Now, his older music was way better, vote Locked Up
Love it boo boo

Pot of Gold

The introduction of this song is spectacular where it starts with a gospel piano. It is full of positive feedback and explains how people work hard just to make it in this cruel world. It built a bridge of not rapping old financial struggles but on how to raise a whole group concern on poverty.
