Check out #shaggy #interview
with GoBeweekly.com discussing Sting, Grammy’s, 44/876, upcoming Niagra Falls concert & of course his new album.
There’s a lot you probably don’t know about SHAGGY, the #Jamaican
with the instantly recognizable voice. Like the fact he actually took his name from the Scooby snack-munching cartoon character. Or the fact he served in the Gulf War as a U.S. Marine, where he honed his vocal delivery free-styling the marching drills to motivate his fellow marines. Or the fact he’s sold over 40 million records, scoring eight singles in the #Billboard
Hot 100 including two #1
hits. Or that he remains the only diamond-certified dancehall/reggae artist in history. What you probably do know – besides the unmistakable vocal delivery – are the songs: “Oh Carolina,” “Boombastic,” “It Wasn’t Me,” and “Angel,” just four of the long string of hits SHAGGY has scored since releasing his 1993 debut, Pure Pleasure.
What you need to know, however, is that Shaggy just picked up the 2019 #Grammy
for his reggae #collaboration
with Sting called 44/876, a super-accessible reggae #hybrid
that successfully showcases the two very distinct artists. You should also know that Shaggy’s 14th #album
, WahGwaan?!, is set for release May 10th, a 12-song collection of solo #tracks
and collaborations that’s emblematic of the singer’s richly diversified sound. But the most important thing to know about Shaggy is that he’s coming to the Avalon Ballroom March 29th to bring the heat to Niagara Falls. The singer took time to chat with GoBeWeekly.com about beating out a #Marley
for a reggae Grammy, why Sting is in such great shape and why having a lawyer isn’t such a bad idea.
