R&B singer Akon was left red faced during a private gig in New York on Tuesday (26Jun12) after he forgot the lyrics to one of his new songs.
The Locked Up hitmaker is set to release his latest mixtape, Konkrete Jungle, next week (02Jul12) and, as a special treat for fans, he debuted a few tracks while performing at hotspot Double Seven's Avenue A Soundcheck party.
But his mind went blank during a remix of Gotye's hit Somebody That I Used To Know.
Apologising to the crowd before restarting the track, he said, "Excuse me, I just made this song, like, last week, so I'm still learning the lyrics, OK?"
The Grammy Award winner took the mistake in his stride and continued the rest of the show without incident.
