È ora disponibile in tutti I negozi e negli store digitali "HOT SHOT 2020", l'album che festeggia il 20mo anniversario del disco di diamante "HOT SHOT". Questo nuovo progetto contiene versioni riviste delle più grandi hit di Shaggy.
"Per Hot Shot 2020 - racconta SHAGGY - volevo modernizzare canzoni come "It Wasn't Me," "Angel," "Luv Me Luv Me", dar loro una nuova forza così come altre hit come "Boombastic" e "Oh Carolina".
Abbiamo ripreso l'energia originale portando però I brani verso una nuova strada, esplorando nuovi suoni che non avevamo mai provato prima".
Registrato tra New York e il leggendario Anchor Recording Studio in Jamaica, per questo disco Shaggy ha chiamato a collaborare un lungo elenco di grandi produttori come Martin Kierszenbaum (Sting, Lady Gaga, Madonna), Shane Hoosong (Vybz Kartel), Dave Audé (Bruno Mars, Selena Gomez), e Dwayne "iLL Wayno" Shippy (Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj).
When it comes to making dancehall reggae hits that rock the world and stand the test of time, nobody does it better than Shaggy.
Born Orville Richard Burrell and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Shaggy got his start as a club DJ in New York City's burgeoning dancehall scene soon after moving to Brooklyn in his teens. Not long after serving four years in the U.S. Marines (including two tours of duty in the Middle East as part of Operation Desert Storm), he inked his first record deal and quickly scored a global crossover smash with "Oh Carolina."
The two-time GRAMMY Award-winner & only diamond-selling dancehall/reggae artist in music history, Shaggy, managed by the Cherrytree Music Company, has sold more than 40 million album units to date, in addition to landing eight singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and seven albums on the Billboard 200 (including four in the top 40). Along with his collaborative album with Sting, 44/876 (winner of Best Reggae Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards), his most recent projects include his twelfth studio album Wah Gwaan?!, a 2019 release that amassed over four million streams during its first week on Spotify alone and spent a chunk of that year in the Top 10 of the Apple iTunes Reggae Chart.
Not only a multi-award-winning songwriter and hitmaker, Shaggy has long used his platform to strengthen his community and homeland, with his Shaggy & Friends benefit concerts raising millions for the Bustamante Children's Hospital (the Caribbean's only English-speaking children's hospital, located in Kingston).
