STING & SHAGGY: New Single “Don’t Make Me Wait” To Be Released January 25 Island-Influenced, Collaborative Album Out April 20
Interscope/A&M Records is pleased to announce the release of “Don’t Make Me Wait” – the new, Caribbean-flavored song from Sting and Shaggy – available January 25thon all digital platforms (http://smarturl.it/DMMWPresave). The first single will be followed on April 20th by a collaborative, island-influenced album, entitled 44/876, that reflects the duo’s mutual love of Jamaica – its music, the spirit of its people and vibrancy of its culture.
Sting and Shaggy were initially introduced by Martin Kierszenbaum, who is Sting’s manager and Shaggy’s former A&R executive. After Sting heard a new track that Shaggy was working on, they decided to go into the studio together. Initially, the plan was to only record “Don’t Make Me Wait,” but the rhythms, lyrics and melodies flowed readily between these two accomplished musicians and, as a result, more new songs emerged.
