The great featuring of Sting and Shaggy in the “44/876” album
The name of the album is a trick to revive the audience’s interest. The Sting’s release recorded with a Jamaican reggae performer Shaggy is really an interesting work. This positive mix of British laconic pop and colorful Jamaican reggae is good for a sunny day and relaxing.
Telephone codes in the name
Summers decided to release the album with a set of numbers instead of a name together with the Jamaican reggae performer Shaggy. In fact, these are the telephone codes of the countries from where both singers came from – Jamaica and Great Britain. The result became an interesting sunny music for many music lovers, not only Sting’s fans.
Sting is a pop-rock legend who fused punk, new wave, and reggae when was playing in the band called The Police. He sold 70 million albums and became even more popular after starting his own career. However, in recent years he decided to spend his time on the medieval music and classical works. At the same time, Shaggy is a pop-reggae producer and the author of the 1996 international hit “Mr. Bombastic ”. At hydro.fm you can listen to their music and lot more.
In recent years, both artists worked each in their own niches. But at the beginning of 2018, both of them unexpectedly announced the imminent release of the joint album “44/876”. This is a very cute, unpretentious, positive-minded and honest pop reggae. It looks like something not commercial in the middle, but don’t let the atmosphere fool you – this release is commercially successful.
