2019 Grammy Award Winner:
• Best Reggae Album
Sting & Shaggy release their collaborative, island-inspired album, entitled 44/876, on A&M/Interscope Records.
The album features the single "Morning Is Coming", a brassy reggae track fueled by sultry horns, as well as the Caribbean-flavored single "Dont Make Me Wait."
Sting, who wove Jamaican rhythms into his early work with The Police as well as his solo repertoire, and Shaggy, born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica and cutting his musical teeth in the dance hall clubs of Brooklyn and Manhattan, initially joined creative forces to record Dont Make Me Wait as a tribute to the Caribbean sounds that influenced them both - and ended up recording an entire album full of joy, melody and uplifting music.
The single "Dont Make Me Wait" debuted at #1 on Billboards digital reggae single sales chart upon it's January 2018 release.
44/876 was recorded in Jamaica and New York with Sting & Shaggy being joined by various musicians and writers including the legendary Robbie Shakespeare of Sly and Robbie, dancehall sensation Aidonia, Morgan Heritage, Branford Marsalis, Agent Sasco and Stings longtime guitarist, Dominic Miller as well as writers Taranchyla, Dwayne "iLL Wayno" Shippy, Shane Hoosong, Machine Gun Funk and Patexx. The sessions were produced in part by Sting International ("Oh, Carolina," "Boombastic" and "It Wasnt Me,") and by Martin Kierszenbaum who has previously written/produced songs for Sting, Madonna and Lady Gaga. Sting International, Robert "Hitmixer" Orton, Sting International and Tony Lake mixed 44/876.
