Akon is releasing a new album this year, but he said he is ready to retire and the reason why.....Lady Gaga!

"She's pretty much retired me," Akon told The Associated Press. "She was definitely a blessing. She came at the right moment. I'm glad I believed in her, boy. That goes to show you, if you believe in something strong enough, it will pay off."

A little background info for ya.....Lady Gaga was initially signed to Def Jam Records, where she was dropped several months later. Too bad for Def Jam because then Akon signed her as a free agent as he was finalizing his Kon Live deal with Interscope Records and label head Jimmy Iovine. Fast-forward a few years and Lady Gaga has become an internationally known pop star, winning two awards at the 2010 Grammys: Best Dance Recording for "Poker Face" and Best Electronic/Dance Album for The Fame.

"She just blossomed into a super megastar," said Akon.
