Reggae and dancehall bulwark Shaggy is poised to release a new solo album six years after his last one. The album is titled ‘Wah Gwaan’ and is set to be released on the 10th of May 2019. The new record will showcase Shaggy’s Jamaican roots, global reach, contagious joy and introspective side.
Shaggy went on to say, “This is the first album that is personal – a bit of my truth. With previous albums, I kept my private life private, and I felt it was time to address certain things. Also, there is a point where you can’t talk about woman and gal any more.”
Shaggy first mentioned the record in November 2018 with the release of , “Use Me”
‘Wah Gwaan’ has a number of collaborations, including tracks with 19-year-old Canadian singer Alexander Stewart on ‘You’, dancehall star Shenseea and singer-songwriter Stacy Barthe on ‘Supernatural’. Adding on there is ‘Money up’ with Noah Powa and reggaeton hit-maker Nicky Jam and singer Jason Derulo on ‘Tic Toc’. The album’s producers include Tony CD Kelly, Dave Kelly, Martin Kierszenbaum, iLLWayno, Kizzo and Costi Official.
Shaggy pushed back the release to work around his 44/876 collaborative album with Sting, and this proved the sensible thing to do as the project was awarded this year’s Grammy in the Best Reggae Album category.
“I was about to release my own album, but then this project with Sting came up, so I pushed it back. Having gotten back into the studio, I realized that what I had done before, I had to rework because there was a lot of growth during the interim. I turned 50,” he said with pride and acceptance.
