Akon's melodic thuggin' on the airwaves has helped turn records by superstars like Gwen Stefani into harmonic hits.

Now the singer is moving into the realm of three of music's most iconic legends: Madonna, Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson.

"Ooh, don't even say his name twice," 'Kon joked recently in Miami, referring to Jackson. "I'm not supposed to be talking about this!"

Although he wouldn't disclose the specifics of his collaboration or collaborations with Jackson fearing the cold, swift sting of a slap from the King of Pop's signature gloved hand (or, at least, legal action), he did let MTV News in on the experience.

"He's incredible," 'Kon testified of M.J. "He's a genius. Just to be in the same room [with him], I felt everything I wanted to accomplish in life has been achieved. That aura ... that's how incredible that aura is. We about to shake the world up, man. You know how you be with somebody and you can't even explain [the feeling]? I used to sit and think, 'How does somebody sell so many records and dominate a whole business genre, to a point [where] nobody can't be a part of that without associating with you?' The way he thinks ... some artists think regional, some think national, I was thinking international. He thinks planets. It's on another level."

While 'Kon hasn't been in the studio with Madonna yet, he said he expects to "shock the world" with her Madge-esty before the end of the year.

He did say that the tracks he records with Whitney Houston will reflect her real, personal life.

"I'm starting on Whitney's project," he said. "She's the truth. She's undeniable. She's got so much to think about, sing about. This album is going to be one of the biggest albums she decided to put out. She has so much energy, so much happiness and sadness to incorporate into the album. Her voice is strong enough to deliver any message she wants to sing to the world. It's outta here."

However, it will be a while before we see another album from Akon himself — he estimates about 18 months. Plans call for three more singles to be released from his multiplatinum Konvicted LP.

The hitmaker said he does have a clear vision for the album: He wants it to be the soundtrack to a film he is spearheading inspired by the 2006 documentary "Cocaine Cowboys".

"It's the biggest movie in history," he said. "You thought 'Scarface' was crazy, this movie is a true-life story based on Jon Roberts. He was the leading pilot for the Medellin Cartel [Colombian drug traffickers]. Everything about it is real except the characters. It's about the war on drugs."



Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Madonna and Whitney Houston: With all those legends lined up to either finish collaborations or get in the studio for the first time with Akon, you would think his dance card would be filled and he might not have time for anybody else. Not if you're 50 Cent. 50 has the Akon collaboration on his LP Curtis, and the in-demand singer says he and Fif are going to do even more songs together.

"It's one of them records where it's almost like you get so successful, people assume you lost your street feel. You lost your edge," 'Kon, on the Miami set of Wyclef's "Sweetest Girl" video, said about "I'll Still Kill." "I'm at my highest point on the pop side, but I started with street records and still can go there. It's not a problem. 50 is the same way. It's just 50 is thinking more business now. He's thinking radio, crossover, but at any moment, he can switch up and go there. Don't get it twisted, we still will kill. SSK [SoundScan Killers] all day.

"We'd talk for hours on the telephone," he added about making the record. "At the time, I was in Europe moving crazy, he was doing his thing, getting his album together. But we'd still be on the phone like, 'Listen to this. What you think?' Shortly after the song was completed, we met face to face, gave each other a pound, gave each other a hug, like, 'N---a, we got a hit.' Now we're gonna do more records for both [our upcoming albums]. We'll swap out. Whoever's album it feel right on, that's where we gonna put it."

Are we ready for Akon the movie mogul as well? He's putting together a film called "Cocaine Cowboys" that will center on the importation of narcotics into L.A. and Miami decades ago. It's looking like his next album will be the soundtrack to the project.
