Rapper Akon is ending his seven-year hiatus from recording music by releasing a five-disc album.

The Smack That hitmaker will release Stadium later this year (15) and is currently streaming one song from each album for his fans.

Each record will be a different genre of music, according to Billboard.com.

In a message on Twitter.com, he writes, "Thru out (sic) this long wait, there has (sic) been fans who stuck with me. This Album is for you! 5 Albums 5 genres equaling Stadium."

Akon's third studio album, Freedom, was released in 2008.
