Music ARL writes about Shaggy's new album Summer in Kingston and about Dame and Sugarcane: "Shaggy is now back! His new studio album has just dropped worldwide, and it is truly something major. There are some really great tracks in that record, so make sure to check it out on iTunes." Music ARL: "Sugarcane is more of a funky track with a touch of humor." "Dame is a great dance, groovy track that features a unique tropical, Caribbean feel to it. The harmonica throughout Dame is just flawless, and it really intensifies the fervent touch it delivers through the spectacular island-driven melody." "Both tracks are equally awesome."
Dame is one of the songs on Shaggy's amazing new Summer in Kingston. It features Romanian singer Celia and it was produced by Costi Ionita, who also composed and produced Fired Up, another song on the album. Celia told Libertatea: "Working with Shaggy is due to Costi Ionita. For me it's something that I dreamed of when I was kid. I loved Shaggy as a child, and now I realize that dreams can come true. At some point in the song, Shaggy says "Lovely Celia". I feel tremendous joy when I hear that, it's as if he's singing to me."
Cancan writes: " Listen to this new summer hit! Dame is going to win the hearts of fans and in no time become one of the hits of summer 2011." Ziar Monden: "Costi Ionita with Celia and Shaggy released a new song that is likely to make waves in the hot summer of 2011."

The debut single from Mr. Boombastic's new album/EP Summer In Kingston is a fun, summer song filled with innuendos. The video depicts the story of a young foreign women (English) along with her mother getting addicted to the "Sugarcane" on "old island in the sun", beautifully captured by one of the best Jamaican directors, Jay Will."
Yardese: "Yes we here at the Da spot give nuff ratings to Shaggy for his new video sugarcane which was produced by Jay Will."
FUNX: "Shaggy makes comeback with Sugarcane video and Summer in Kingston album. Shaggy is back with the video for his new single Sugarcane. It's the first release of his latest album Summer in Kingston. Sentences like "She likes the taste of my sugarcane" make it obvious that the Jamaican artist still likes tongue-in-cheek texts. The rapper dropped his vocals on a reggae beat that also comprises some pop elements."
