Sting and Shaggy to release Caribbean collaboration
In an early contender for strangest music collaboration of 2018, Sting and Shaggy have announced they have been working on new tracks together.
The British singer-songwriter and Jamaican-American rapper got together late last year, according to a post on Sting’s website, “to jam and create music that reflects their mutual love of Jamaica, its music, people and culture”.
As a result of their time in the studio, “Caribbean-flavoured songs emerged,” the post says.
Sting found fame with The Police in the 1970s, with hits including Roxanne, Message In A Bottle and Don’t Stand So Close To Me, before going on to achieve success as a solo artist.
Shaggy hit the top of the UK charts with Oh Carolina and Boombastic in the 1990s.
The unlikely duo performed together in Jamaica on Saturday, at a Shaggy and Friends charity concert raising money for Bustamante Hospital for Children.
Their first single, Don’t Make Me Wait, will be released on 2 February 2018.
