Eind jaren tachtig werd Orville Richard Burrell ontdekt als hij, net verhuisd naar New York, zijn zangkwaliteiten laat horen op straat. Hij besloot echter eerst in dienst te gaan een vocht mee in de Golfoorlog. In 1993 kwam zijn eerste single, Oh Carolina, uit Engeland overwaaien naar ons land en daarmee wist hij meteen zijn eerste top 10-hit te scoren. Het album Boombastic werd in 1996 onderscheiden met een Grammy voor beste reggae album.


Zijn album Hot Shot, dat in 2000 verscheen, werd in de Verenigde Staten zes keer platina. Van dat album kwamen de hits It Wasn’t Me en Angel, waarmee hij totaal 14 weken de Top 40 wist aan te voeren. Daarmee overtrof hij als Jamaicaan de successen van Bob Marley & The Wailers, maar later moest hij wel Sean Paul laten passeren.

In 2003 stond Shaggy voor het laatst in de Top 40 met zijn tiende hit Hey Sexy Lady. Strength Of A Woman en Feel The Rush (Mascots Song) bleven steken in de Tipparade.


In 2014 is Shaggy terug in een samenwerking met Mohombi, Faydee en Costi op Habibi (I Need Your Love). Die track wordt in 2015 opnieuw uit de kast getrokken als I Need Your Love.



In het voorjaar van 2016 is hij één van de acts die te horen is op Don't You Need Somebody van RedOne.


Songtekst

What situation here it is Shaggy Gand puba style?
In a dancehall style wicked a whya so versatile ch

Why must she treat you so bad?
I don't know why she treated me like that
Why must she treat you so bad
If it's scheming, scheming like a demon

Why must she treat you so bad?
Why that girl treat me so bad girl?
Why must she treat so bad
Hey Shaggy we ain't having it let 'em know what time it is

Apple in my eye an the key to my yacht
She's the only girl I desire from the start
And if we get together never part
But every time I talk to her she try to blow me off

She keeps trying to avoid me
To tell her the truth girl this really annoys me
But I'm the number one champion
Tha doberman ere on the microphone stand
She says "Goddamn"

But since I'm such a good man
And all the leading ladies would love to have my hand
So why you treat me like a mad man?
Young girl why don't you get with the program?

Why must she treat you so bad?
I don't understand this woman at all
Why must she treat you so bad?
You need to knock it off 'coz we ain't going for it

Why must she treat you so bad?
You wait till that day that glorious day
Why must she treat you so bad?
Yo Puba le me girl know where yo gwan

Now baby listen I ain't into butt kissing
If you think I'm going out like that, keep wishing
You play hard to get then you won't get got
If you keep acting up ya end up a have not

Every day it seems that you want to treat me bad
Every day it seems your maxi on a pad
I treat you like a queen and you play me like peasant
No matter what I do you try to make me feel unpleasant

But hey it'll come back to haunt chaya
If I flip the script and say "Now I don't want cha"
I can change like sneakers and clothes
Is git, it stick it ain't change, but a plane ticket

Why must she treat you so bad?
A wag man
Why must she treat you so bad?
Easy come easy

Why must she treat you so bad?
I don't know why I have to see ya like this
Why must she treat you so bad?
Say ya better take it personal

A lover boy says "Yes may God bless" Mmm
She uller to told me oh goodness
And that's when she put me to the test
And that's when I had to but the egg in the bird nest

And that's how we rumble
Last night a upon real lover she stumble
I'm just the same guy that she dissed
And now she never passes me with out blowing a kiss
Yo girl you're dismissed just like that then

Why must she treat you so bad?
Yeah, yeah plain legged sexy keep on walking
Why must she treat you so bad?
Now I don't get the short end of the stick

Why must she treat you so bad?
That's right are you with me?
Why must she treat you so bad?
And that's how it goes
Check it

Ain't no honey fly enough
Ain't no boody fat enough
Ain't no coody good enough
To string out Gran Pu

So baby be true stop all the things you do
Before I change my mind and find somebody new
And now you know this is how Gran Puba and Shaggy do
Mother made you, mother had you, mother

As we put it on like that time to represent
Here we go
Situation is we ain't having it these days
So we got a let 'em know
One time

Why must she treat you so bad?
Now what's the situation again? Hey
Why must she treat you so bad?
She get a lift chill

Why must she treat you so bad?
Yeah Gran Puba Shaggy here girls
Why must she treat you so bad?
