Don't Matter (4:53)

Cover of Konvicted (Deluxe Edition)

From Konvicted (Deluxe Edition) and 21 other releases

“Don’t Matter” is a pop–R&B song recorded by Akon for his second studio album konvicted (2006).

It was released in the U.S. in mid-January 2007. The song made its debut at #79 on the Hot 100 and reached #1 after ten weeks on the chart, in large part due to its substantial airplay, the song topping the Hot 100 Airplay chart for two weeks. In the UK, it debuted on the singles chart at number forty-five, based solely upon downloads, and late peaking at number three following a physical release. Following the song’s debut inside the top ten on the singles chart in Canada, it peaked at number one for a period of three weeks. As of January 2008, the song has been certified 3 times platinum for 3,000,000 digital sales. Bizzy Bone made a remix with this song.

Don’t Matter” has a structure / tune very similar in parts to R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” and “Zimbabwe” by Bob Marley. Both songs were release before Akon released this.

Fall Out Boy did a cover of “Don’t Matter” for their live album, ****: Live in Phoenix. They also performed the song at their June 12, 2007 concert, the night after their bassist Pete Wentz got in a fight with a fan.

The music video starts with Akon picking up his date at a location. As he leaves with this date, an old man (presumably a relative of the date) is shown both reading a magazine about Akon partying at local clubs and staring at the two with an angry look. The video continues with Akon singing “Don’t Matter” throughout the course of his date. It is set in a Caribbean beach style community at social places such as the beach, village market, and a dance. A scene in the video where Akon photographs his date taking off her bra has led to some controversy.
