Now that his dream to work with Michael Jackson is accomplished ten years faster than he expected, Akon cancels plan on retirement.

Rapper Akon is said to seek for retirement after accomplishing his big dream of collaborating with King of Pop Michael Jackson but the issue has been slammed by the rapper. "That was a dream come true," Akon told MTV on Tuesday (July 29). "You know how you come into a career and set your goals as to where you wanna start and where you wanna end? I had a wish list of all the collaborations I ever wanted to do. Mike was at the top. I was saying, 'Well, if ever I get to Mike, then that'll be the sign I can retire.' But I got to Mike 10 years earlier than I expected. So I decided not to make retirement goals anymore."

Akon has been approached by Michael to produce his forthcoming comeback album, which will be released under Akon's record label, Konvict Music. In a press release, the rapper gave hints by saying, "When (Jackson's) record comes out, read the label."

Meanwhile, in return for his help, Akon is having Michael's vocals in his new single "Hold My Hand" which will be on Akon's forthcoming album "Acquitted". "He's fully committed," Akon said about the duet. "We're gonna set up a whole tour around it. It's a big play."
