Provides examples of:

  • Auto-Tune: Used in "Turn Me On" (featuring Nicki Minaj) and heavily in "Who's That Chick?" (featuring Rihanna). To great effect in both.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: Applied to the dolls in the music video of "Turn Me On".
  • Bowdlerize: Apart from "Sexy Bitch" becoming "Sexy Chick", the Snoop Dogg collaboration "Wet" ("I just wanna make you wet!") became "Sweat".
  • Concept Video: "Titanium" is about a kid (played by Carey of Super 8) who discovers Mind over Matter powers and is hunted for it.
  • Epic Fail: Akon tries to find the words to describe this girl without coming across as disrespectful... and ends up spouting the phrase, "Damn, you're a sexy bitch!". To make it worse, a previous line says she's not "nothing you can compare to your neighborhood 'ho".
    Todd in the Shadows: Now there's a famous psychological term; the "virgin-whore complex" (...). Akon, however, seemed to have something a bit different.
  • Fanservice: At the start and end of the "She Wolf (Falling To Pieces)" video, we see a naked woman with her back to the camera.
    • "I'm Good" features the beautiful Bebe Rexha sporting and dancing in an Absolute Cleavage outfit, a shirtless David, and a lot of pretty girls including a burlesque dancer.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: He and Afrojack created most of their popular songs together, and they continue to make music together today.
  • Intentionally Awkward Title: "Sexy Bitch" (featuring Akon). The radio version is "Sexy Chick".
    • From 2003 to 2013, he had a series of annual house music compilation albums called Fuck Me, I'm Famous.
  • Sampling: He is extremely very fond of sampling, being as he's a DJ and all. Trying to list all of the songs he's sampled would take us way too long. If you want to know how many people he's sampled, the WhoSampled website has you covered.
  • Pathetic Drooping Weapon: The music video of Lovers On The Sun is a homage to The Western, and when it comes to the climactic gunfight, the bad guys' weapons all melt away simultaneously when their opponent pulls out a miniature sun.
  • Self-Empowerment Anthem: Titanium
  • Sound-Effect Bleep: In the clean version of "Where Them Girls At", in the form of a soccer whistle during Nicki Minaj's verse.
  • Spin the Earth Backwards: Shown in the music video for "Little Bad Girl" (featuring Taio Cruz and Ludacris).
  • Steampunk: Featured in the music video of "Turn Me On".
  • Wolverine Publicity: Compared to most other DJs, except maybe Calvin Harris and Avicii.
