The vibe of the album was inspired by deep grooves of pioneering roots Reggae band, Black Uhuru, to which Shaggy added his own flavor.

“Those hard Black Uhuru drum and bass tracks with my pop style of writing and melodies added a nice twist. I feel this album is really something solid and authentic”says Shaggy.

The lead single, Fight this Feeling is a duet with lover’s rock icon, Beres Hammond, set to a timeless Sly & Robbie rhythm, which has changed the Dancehall scene this summer, forcing DJs to play lovers rock during their set. Fight this Feeling is a modern day love song with excellent production from Sly & RobbieSting International and Lenky.

The second single released off, Out of Many, One Music, titled You Girl features R&B pop star, Ne-Yoand is currently number one on the Reggae iTunes charts.You Girl is a body roll- inducing love song that finds the fellas serenading a lucky young lady about how wonderful she is.

The remaining tracks on this 13-track album are all new and have not been released. Shaggy collaborated with many of the industry’s legends and upcoming Reggae and Dancehall sensations. This album gives you the opportunity to enjoy good reggae, great musical production and take a journey with Shaggy and some of his friends as they pay tribute to the culture and one of the many gifts given to the world from the island of Jamaica, Reggae.

Out of Many, One Music is not a new Shaggy album but a collaboration as he explains, between him and legendary Jamaican rhythm duo, Sly & Robbie.

“I’ve been criticized for years for not being authentic because of my pop success…People say I’m not this…I’m not that…Now I’m doing a Reggae album with the masters and people are saying it’s a game changer. The first 2 singles have already proven that to some extent! You be the judge on September 24th! says Shaggy.”
