SHAGGY

GRAMMY-winning, certified diamond-selling music icon Shaggy kicks into high gear in anticipation of his new studio album Wah Gwaan?! – out next Friday, May 10 via The Cherrytree Music Company, Brooklyn Knights Entertainment and 300 Entertainment. Pre-order is available this Friday, May 3.

Today (May 2), Shaggy will debut the album’s latest single “You” featuring the 19-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter Alexander Stewart with a performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on CBS. Next week, the duo will grace the stage of ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday, May 8 followed by performances on Live with Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday, May 14 and Strahan & Sara on Friday, May 17. Tune in to hear the song that Billboard calls an “irresistibly upbeat EDM/dancehall fusion.”

Wah Gwaan?! is Shaggy’s most personal album to date and an emblematic display of his rich sound influenced by all styles of music. He embodies his Jamaican roots on dancehall tracks like “Caribbean Way,” “Frenemy,” “Ketch Mi Up” and “Money Up” ft. Noah Powa. Shaggy balances the seductive energy of rising dancehall superstar Shenseea and GRAMMY-nominated R&B powerhouse vocalist Stacy Barthe on “Super Natural.” His musical worlds collide on “Body Good” ft. Nicky Jam, one of the biggest acts out of the urban Latino scene. Shaggy continues to spread his contagious joy on “Use Me” and “Makeup Sex” ft. Nyanda and reveals his introspective side on “Wrong Room,” an ode about his mother. The artist expands his global reach with the irresistible smash “You” ft. Alexander Stewart and “When She Loves Me” ft. Rayvon. Shaggy and Rayvon have a long hit-making history, spawning ‘90s & ‘00s mega anthems “In The Summertime,” “Angel” and “Big Up.” Shaggy also taps a diverse range of producers including the legendary dancehall brothers Tony CD Kelly and Dave Kelly, Martin Kierszenbaum (Sting, Lady Gaga), iLLWayno (Nicki Minaj, Nas, 2 Chainz), Kizzo and Costi Official. Wah Gwaan?! represents a robust musical journey by a musician/songwriter/entertainer/armed forces veteran that invites the listener in with vibrancy, urgency and hope. Most of all, it captures the Caribbean-forged, energy-infused, adventure-informed musical impulses of a one-of-kind original: Shaggy.

Shaggy will tour throughout the spring and summer. He will also join Sting for a series of shows spanning across the UK in late May performing songs off their recent GRAMMY winner for Best Reggae Album, entitled 44/876, as well as their own respective greatest hits, together.

Sting & Shaggy

Sting and Shaggy are excited to unleash the official video for ‘Gotta Get Back My Baby’ today featuring Golden Globe-nominated actor Steven Bauer (Scarface/Breaking Bad) and directed by Michael Garcia. The track appears on Sting & Shaggy’s collaborative album 44/876 (Cherrytree/A&M/Interscope Records), which to date has spent sixteen weeks atop Billboard’s Reggae chart. Watch the video HERE.

Set in Miami and inspired by the hilarity and hijinks of classic buddy-cop TV shows and films, the light-hearted video sees the pair playing detectives reporting to their police Captain (Bauer) and partnering up for a host of frenzied action and stunts on a mission to find Roxy, a dangerous fugitive, in an exhilarating visual that encapsulates the spirit of the duo’s compelling and dynamic partnership.

The track, co-produced by Teflon (Wyclef Jean, Fat Joe, Ruff Ryders) and Martin Kierszenbaum (Sting, Mylène Farmer, Lady Gaga), appears on Sting and Shaggy’s chart-topping, island-inspired album, 44/876 (Cherrytree/A&M/Interscope Records), which debuted at #1 in Germany and has reached Gold status in both France and Poland.
