The 'Smack That' hitmaker suggests Christina Aguilera to team up with Lady GaGa rather than trying to compete against her.

recently discussed about often being compared to and his comment is sure to spark controversy. In an interview with Vibe, the R&B singer criticized Aguilera for "switching up" her sound as soon as GaGa got her big break in an effort to compete.

"Aw man, that's not even any competition," Akon said. "You are actually giving Christina too much credit. She always had her cool little look and way about how she went about things. But soon as GaGa came out everything switched up. Christina stepped out of her own shell to become something different."

"And the crazy thing is Christina is really talented. She has unlimited range when it comes to singing. Her voice is out of here. I just think she just needs to believe in herself more. I think sometimes she gets insecure because of all of the success GaGa has had not realizing that she was already successful before GaGa came out."

In further statement, Akon admitted he likes Aguilera's previous music more than her new one "Not Myself Tonight". Instead of competing against each other, he then suggested she makes a duet with GaGa, reasoning the two talented artists will create amazing music together.

"Christina shouldn't have anything to prove or anyone to compete with. I miss the old Christina Aguilera," he shared. "I like the old one better than the new one. Honestly, GaGa and Christina could probably get together and do something that's amazing. But that's impossible if they are both trying to do the same exact thing musically."

Christina Aguilera is going to release a new album "" in the U.S. on June 8. She will celebrate the album release with a full half-hour performance at the "TODAY" show's summer concert series. Joining her on the line-up are , Lady GaGa, , , , , and more.
