Land   Jamaica

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.

Life is one big party when you're still young
But who's gonna have your back when it's all done (Yeah)
It's all good when you live to have pure fun
Can't be a fool, son

Could have left, but I called and you heeded
Begged and I pleaded
Mission completed (Naa)
Mama said that I and I dissed the program
Not the type to mess around with her emotion (Yeah)
But the feeling that I have for you is so strong
Been together so long
And this could never be wrong

You must be sent from up above
And you appear to me so tender
Say, girl, I surrender
Thanks for giving me your love

Girl, in spite of my behavior
Well, you are my savior
You must be sent from up above
And you appear to me so tender
Well, girl, I surrender (Ah)
Said thanks for giving me your love

Now life is one big party when you're still young
And who's gonna have your back when it's all done
It's all good when you live to have pure fun

Said me not giving her much attention (Naa)
She was there through my incarceration
