After one decade, fourteen albums
(of which 8 studio albums), two of them multi-platinum, many #1 hits,
and even more top ten singles world wide, Grammy winning Big Yard
recording artist Shaggy is still on the grind. Making music that
celebrates his culture and being an ambassador for Reggae music has
always been the driving force in the heart of Jamaica’s only
living Diamond-plus selling artist.
In the early 1990’s Shaggy entered the scene with his deep
throaty remix of the Ska classic ‘Oh Carolina’, the
first major Reggae record to come out of the dancehall underground.
Soon after, the steady dub rhythm of the platinum selling Boombastic
solidified Shaggy as a dancehall hit-maker winning the 1996 Grammy
Award for Best Reggae Album.
When Hotshot dropped in 2000 no one could have predicted that this was
going to be the album to set Shaggy totally apart from any artist on
the dancehall stage. Hotshot, the best-selling album in 2001, sold over
13 million albums world wide and topped the charts in the US, UK,
Germany and Australia simultaneously. The album was seven times
platinum certified in Canada and six times platinum in the US. Hotshot
rocketed to the top of the charts with two phenomenal singles,
“It Wasn’t Me” and
“Angel”, which featured Big Yard
protégés Rik Rok and Rayvon, respectively.
Fall of 2005 found Shaggy releasing Clothes Drop an album that gave his
audience chart topping dancehall singles like
“Wild2Nite” and “Ready Fi Di
Ride”. Steady contributions to the dancehall are what keep
Shaggy current. He is one of very few Reggae artists who always have a
fresh new record pulsing through the dancehall market.
being no exception, he released Intoxication, an album featuring big tunes like the club banger 'Church Heathen' and
'Reggae Vibes', a well-received tune that finds
Shaggy taking on the role of singing. 'Vibes' is
the first song to ever feature this famed deejay singing, just more
proof that with Shaggy's ingenuity anything is possible. In 2008, Shaggy scored another number one hit in Germany with the official UEFA Euro 2008 single Feel the Rush and the single Fly High is one of the hottest tunes of the summer of 2009.
To date, Shaggy has sold over 20 million albums, but he
doesn't take that achievement lightly. Knowing that records
are meant to be broken, today we find Shaggy in the studio putting the
finishing touches on his eagerly anticipated but still untitled album
due in 2010 and organizing a large benefit concert
for the Bustamente Hospital for Children in Kingston, Jamaica. Working from his strong
foundation and always expecting the best, Shaggy is doing his part to
make good music, make a difference and prove that the "world
is just one big yard!!"
