Akon is coming back in a big way. Seven years after the release of his third album Freedom, Akon announced plans for his new five part album, Stadium.

Each part of the project will cover one of five genres -- Euro, pop, urban, island and world.  On his website, the rapper and singer is giving fans a chance to preview a song from each part.
