Lonely by Akon was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, May 14, 2005 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This song is about a boyfriend who neglects his girl and takes her for granted. One day, he wakes up and she's gone. It's only in her absence that he realizes what she means to him and comes to appreciate her. This is a reworking of the 1964 Bobby Vinton hit "Mr. Lonely." The sample was sped-up so it sounded similar to The Chipmunks.
