Mr Boombastic's Hey Sexy Lady live on TRL Italy in Milan
June 27 - Shaggy dubs in Italy on Monday, live on MTV TRL today
Shaggy had a dub session in Milan on Monday (see Bashment and Heavy Hammer). I haven't been able to find a link to listen to it afterwards but who knows...you just might get it.
Also, Shaggy will present the Italian MTV Total Request Live show today. Featured artists besides Shaggy on this week's show are Paola and Chiara, Vanilla Sky and Ghosts. If you receive Italian MTV... enjoy, if not... catch it on Overdrive or elsewhere! The Boombastic show will at least feature the Intoxicating reggae vibes from Church Heathen and Mr Lover Lover himself.
June 26 - Shaggy in Italy
Shaggy is in Italy today to perform at a very exclusive invitation-only show at La Rythmoteque in Milan. The invitation reads that "Shaggy has decided to have a party where he will present material from his new album". He'll be performing at La Rithmoteque, as well as Italian reggae act Twofingerz.
June 25 - FunkMaster Flex Custom Car and Bike Show Pics and Much More
Shaggy and Elephant Man represented at FunkMaster Flex's Custom Car and Bike Show, which was also attended by FunkMaster Flex himself of course, as well as Fat Joe, Ice-T, LL Cool J, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, Fabolous, Clark Kent and Angie Martinez to name a few (full gallery here). I also found a couple of radio promos/interview, news paper articles and even a very recent video, but I have 5 essays to write so come back for more Shaggy stuff later.
Plus: I can promise you that a certain very cool radio show that'll be broadcast next Saturday will feature not just one but two new Shaggy songs, one of them I knew about for some time but I hadn't mentioned on here yet. So... if you wanna know more... come back then as I'll have the link up by Saturday!
June 24 - 10th Annual Caribbean Sea Breeze Festival
Shaggy, Buju Banton, Cocoa Tea, Elephant Man, Supa G, Mime and more will perform on the 10th Annual Caribbean Sea Breeze Festival in Long Beach, California, on July 22.

June 22 - Shaggy in Da’Ville’s remix Always on My Mind music video
Shaggy makes an appearance in the new video clip by Da'Ville featuring Sean Paul for the remix of Always on My Mind. The video was shot two-and-a-half weeks ago by Ras Kassa in Port Royal and tells the tale of a love that although it isn't always perfect, their loves are always on the artists' minds. As soon as a decent copy of the video is online, I'll link it on here!
Fun fact: did you know Shaggy and Da'Ville share the same first name (Orville)?
June 21 - Shaggy in Washington - US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Miller enjoy the concert
US Secrety of State Condoleezza Rice and Jamaican PM Portia Miller jam to Shaggy's concert at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. - Luv Me Luv Me
Shaggy, Jimmy Cliff and Wyclef Jean entertained the audience at the Metro World Concert in Washington D.C. on June 19, among whom were US Secrety of State Condoleezza Rice and Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Miller. Condoleezza Rice visibly enjoyed the concert and was seen moving to Shaggy's performance of Luv Me Luv Me. Jamaican PM Portia Miller was singing along to Strength of a Woman and Oh Carolina, and Shaggy shouted "Big up PM" to her during the concert. More? @ the Washington Post and Hard Beat News.
June 20 - Shaggy live in Dubai videos part III and Washington D.C.
Too bad last night's live broadcast of the Metro World Concert in Washington D.C. won't be up for download!
June 19 - Panty Town Riddim
Shaggy's new song Move Hype, that was broadcast on BBC Radio 1Xtra and KISS FM a couple of weeks ago, will be released on the Panty Town riddim, which was produced by Sting International and also includes songs by Daville, Collie Buddz and Screechie Dan. Here's a track list of the promo album that reached some radio stations today:
1. Daville - Fling It up pon Mi
2. Screechie Dan - Panty Town
3. Collie Buddz and Roach - Searching
4. Shaggy - Yuh a Move Hype
June 18 - Shaggy interview: lcs Hype up close & personal
I'm still gonna get you a good link to listen to Shaggy & Ninja Man "A Nuh U, A Nuh Me" (unless you settle for buying it from a Finnish radio station, which apparently is allowed to sell it already), but in the meantime I found a 20 questions Shaggy interview for you.
Part 1: What kept him in the music industry for ten years and more? Plus: Shaggy prefers collaborating with Rayvon to recording duets with other big stars and his favourite song to this date is Strength of a Woman. Part 2:Church Heathen off his upcoming album Intoxication will be released July 4th. What's the single about? And what countries does he get the best response from during concerts? Part 3: Did Shaggy ever get caught on the bathroom floor? Where does he live? How many cars does he own? Who's his dream girl? (How about Drew Barrimore?) What does Shaggy mean to the ladies? Part 4: About spending a lot of $$ on jewellery. What does he think about Ali G and Borat? Is he still in touch with Sacha Baron Cohen? What does a typical Shaggy day mean?
June 17 Part II - New Shaggy and Ninja Man song!!
Big Yard released a promo of a very new Shaggy song: it's Shaggy featuring Ninja Man: A Nuh U, A Nuh Me!
It was on radio stations in England, Finland, Holland and Germany so far and I'm trying to get you a decent link for the song from one of these radio shows. So stay tuned for that!
June 17 - More Woman
Wanna hear what the Reggae Gold 2007 album has in store for you (unless you've already listened to the song of course)? BonJamTV made a YouTube video out of it. So if you're curious and haven't heard this song yet... go check it!
Shaggy and Rik Rok singing It Wasn't Me live at the MJJ concert video. This video has been online like ages but since it's new to YouTube... enjoy!
June 14 - Concert tour update: Metro World Concert
June 19 - Shaggy, Wyclef Jean, the Ska-Talites and Plunky & Oneness will perform on the Kennedy Center's South Plaza Stage in Washington. This event is staged in conjunction with the "Conference on the Caribbean," and precedes the annual DC Caribbean Carnival. More info.
June 13 Part II - Shaggy, Enrique Iglesias, Xzibit, Good Charlotte, Kelly Rowland and MTV Switch for climate change
Tomorrow, MTV Networks International will launch MTV Switch, a major climate change campaign aimed at slowing down the rate of global warming by encouraging their viewers to lower their carbon emissions and help save the planet. The campaign is designed to reach an audience of 1.5 billion people world wide across the MTV network of 55 local TV channels in 162 countries. Among others, a "green" Pimp My Ride special will air and also Nickelodeon will participate by showing kids what they can do to help decrease their family's energy consumption.
MTV produced PSAs (Public Service Anouncements) to connect with the audiences and show them how they can help lower their energy emission. The PSAs can be used by all other broadcasters free of costs and rights to serve this cause.
Among the celebrities participating to increase awareness for the initiative are Shaggy, Enrique Iglesias, Jojo, XZibit, Kelly Rowland, Sophie-Ellis Bextor, Rufus Wainwright and Good Charlotte. The campaign will encourage people to visit the yet to launch MTV Switch web site.
And speaking of the MTV website, whether or not M-TV likes to broadcast the original video for Church Heathen, you can watch it anyway on MTV Overdrive as well as other music channels, if you wanna see the video in an MTV contetxt.

It Wasn't Me
June 9 Part II - Dubai press conference video!!
Every time I go online I seem to find some more Shaggy in Dubai stuff :). This time it's something especially good: a video of the press conference! Shaggy was being his very charming self and answering questions as to what people can expect from his concert, the reason why he's releasing a new album, the record company shizzles, what kind of person he is and more. I bet you wanna see this.
June 9 - Another Shaggy in Dubai article and pictures
One more Dubai pre-concert article (I had seen it before but it looked so much the same as another article I had already linked), with two other pictures of Shaggy at the Dubai press conference and some more of what he told the press. "It's all about the song", he says.
“I have worked under five different record labels over the years which has resulted in a bumpy ride. But I was never willing to compromise the music for a look or policy. I’ve always stood by my songs and am proud to say that I have made it work and stayed true to myself.” More at the source: Gulf News

June 7 - Shaggy in the United Arab Emirates
As you read earlier, Shaggy's currently in Dubai for his concert tonight at the Life Music Festival at the Madinat Areena, Madinat Jumeirah. Zawya has a promo for the concert with a new Shaggy pic from the press conference. What's fun about the article, is that you can also download it in PDF format including the pic.
June 6 Final part - Church Heathen Dub versions
Robbo Ranx played a dub version of Shaggy's Church Heathen on Dancehall Splurt once again yesterday. You can listen to it here until next week's show is up.
June 6 Part III - Reggae Gold 2007
VP Records created a site about their soon to be released Reggae Gold 2007
album, which of course features Shaggy (More Woman). You can listen to some of
the songs on the album there (not Shaggy’s), download wallpapers, see if
there’s a Reggae Gold release party close to where you live and in a few
days there’ll also be a contest. Interestingly, Shaggy’s song on the
Reggae Gold 2007 album, is also listed on some of the latest dancehall radio
only compilations that mention it as a new single.
The track list: 1. Watch Dem Roll - Sean Paul 2. More Woman - Shaggy 3. Hideaway - Tessanne 4. My Fada Seh - Gyptian 5. Top Shotta Nah Miss - Mavado 6. Bad From Mi Born - Munga 7. Sacrifice - Alaine 8. Love & Affection - Pressure 9. Need Her In My Arms - I Wayne 10.Sticky - Jah Cure
Right now, Mr. Lover Lover is in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, for a concert tomorrow night at the Life Music Festival in the Madinat Arena, which also features DJ Bliss. In an interview with the City Times there, published just 10 minutes ago - yeah I’m fast :), he tells about the last in his life. Intoxication is due for release in late August, as he says. The paper writes he has two sisters, a stepbrother and a cute dog called Sammy, although I'm not sure whether you should believe this Wikipedia info. He jokingly says he’s still single (yeah right - whatever!!). They also have a picture of him up and some more content. So if you want to know more, go read the article!
June 6 - Oceana Kingston videos
I had held off putting these links online since Bonnie promised me some great videos from Shaggy's show in Oceana, but it turns out her videos don't have any other sound than a lot of noise so she doesn't want them online. So... here are two other clips of Shaggy's performance:
June 5 - Shaggy Church Heathen live video at Massive B's anniversary at Amazura club 2007
Shaggy Church Heathen live at Massive B Anniversary at club Amazura 6/2/2007
June 4 - more upcoming tour dates
Like I promised, I added some more of Shaggy's upcoming concert tour dates:
There have also been articles claiming Shaggy will be performing in Eindhoven, the Netherlands and in Sao Paolo, Brasil soon, but I have no idea of whether it's actually "Mr Lover Lover Shaggy", "DJ Shaggy" or someone else performing. Since I can't tell you whether these events actually involve Mr Boombastic or not I'm not including them here - not yet anyway :).
June 3 - Shaggy interview video at the Best of the Best 2007
Shaggy talks about feeling liberated from his former restraining record deal and tells about his upcoming album Intoxication, his new big hit single Church Heathen and reggae being in the best place it has been in years, as it is embraced by mainstream. Watch the interview by WPBT through this link (Quicktime video).
Upcoming Shaggy concert tour dates
When to get your tickets for the next Shaggy show... here's a list of some of the upcoming Shaggy concert:
I read about more upcoming concerts but generally I don’t really care who’s
performing where and when unless it’s close to where I live or I can put it on
the site, so you’ll have to wait for this info a little longer. What I care
about more are of course the music releases:
June 4 2007
