"Sorry, Blame It on Me" is the fifth and final single from R&B singer/songwriter Akon's second studio album, Konvicted (Deluxe Edition). The song was co-written and produced by Clinton Sparks.

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.
