Akon goes gritty in his violent video for “Hurt Somebody”, a buzz single from his forthcoming album Stadium (out September 11). In the clip, the R&B star buffs up and vents his anger in the ring at an underground chain match. “It’s really to promote non-gun violence,” the artist said of his video on 106 & Park. “If you got a problem with somebody, ya’ll should just take it in the ring. We men, let’s handle it. If we can’t talk about it, then let’s fight about it.” We’re not sure if we wholeheartedly agree with Akon’s sentiment, but we must admit the video definitely packs an emotional punch.
