"Sorry, Blame It on Me" is the fifth single from R&B singer/songwriter Akon's second studio album, Konvicted (Deluxe Edition). The song was co-written and produced by Clinton Sparks. This song was made after the nightclub incident in which Akon did a sexual dance with an underage girl. A demo of the song was leaked in February 2007, several months before the official version became available on Akon's Myspace. The song was put on iTunes on July 17, 2007. The song attained the number one position on iTunes on July 21, 2007 and July 23, 2007. The song was released to radio on July 24, 2007. The song debuted on the August 4, 2007 issue of the Billboard Hot 100 at number seven.[1] A music video directed by Chris Robinson was produced to promote the single.
