Recording Artists Shaggy and Sting are pretty busy these days. From showing up at The Grammys, to Hot 97, to even Super Bowl 52, they’re making their presence felt in 2018. With their joint Album “44/876” on the way, they don’t want you to wait too long for it. Funny enough, they’ve released the visual for the single people were waiting a while for, “Don’t Make Me Wait“. Directed by famed Director Gil Green, and shot in Kingston, the duo can be seen passing through Fleet Street, jamming away in Half Way Tree, drinking and shooting Pool at a Bar, and ending it with an appearance at a Street Dance. While some of the video is a bit cliche, we’re treated to a very colourful visual for a dope song. If “Don’t Make Me Wait” is a hit, we can’t wait to hear the rest of the project come April 20. For now, check out the video below!
The 60th Grammy Awards event was a memorable one for many. While some went home with awards, there were others who got “robbed“, and others performed and made an impact. It was all fun when Host James Corden teamed up with International Recording Artists Shaggy and Sting for a special version of “Carpool Karaoke“. With the location of the Grammys being in New York, they took it to the Subway to perform a 3 man version of Shaggy and Sting’s new single, “Don’t Make Me Wait“. The performance was met with boos however as passengers weren’t enjoying Corden’s contribution. Being persistent, Corden continued to perform with them only to end up with a bloody nose.
The 2nd half of Shaggy & Sting’s appearance found them being introduced at the Grammys by Corden for a real performance of their new single. It first kicked off with Sting performing his classic “Englishman In New York” which followed by Shaggy appearing onstage later. With many mistaking Shaggy for Rapper Jim Jones because of his appearance, the performance was an awesome one, and definitely had people looking forward to their “44/876” project which has a April 20 release date.

Feeling like it’s 1995 again, “Mr. Lover Lover” a.k.a. Shaggy, had a song featured in one the latest commercials for US Banking giant, JP Morgan Chase Bank. The Commercial, promoting planning for Retirement, featured Shaggy’s 1995 hit, “Boombastic (Get It Here)” which provided the soundtrack to the 30 second clip. The single was previously featured in a 2015 Tide Commercial from the Philippines and has come a long way since being featured in a Commercial for Levi’s Jeans. “Boombastic” was the 2nd track and single off Shaggy’s Grammy winning album of the same name which went on to sell over a million copies in the US.
