Days apart from Akon-related media feel like years away from the sun. Thus, we are happy to pass along the new video for "Don't Matter," a sparkling golden paean to lovey-dovey. The clip is unadultered anti-booty (except for the, you know, booty parts) with scenes of hand-holding, longly held gazes and hair-stroking. It also includes the biggest freaking diamond-studded watch we have ever seen. "Don't Matter" is one of the 12 best songs on Konvicted (Oh wait, there's only 12 songs on the album.) and one of the best album closers in recent pop memory, so we are super stoked to have a video that so perfectly aligns with the Blue Lagoon-ish doodles we draw when we play it.
