Artiestinformatie

Geboortedatum   22-10-1968
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.


Songtekst

(knocking)
RikRok: yo man
Shaggy: yo
RikRok: open up man
Shaggy: what do you want man?
RikRok: my girl just caught me
Shaggy: you let her catch you?
RikRok: I don't know how I let this happen
Shaggy: with who?
RikRok: the girl next door, you know?
Shaggy: man...
RikRok: I don't know what to do
Shaggy: say it wasn't you
RikRok: alright...

chorus 1 (RikRok)
honey came in and she caught me red-handed
creeping with the girl next door
picture this we were both butt naked
banging on the bathroom floor

how could I forget that I have given her an extra key
all that time she was standing there she never took her eyes off me

(shaggy)
how you can grant the woman access to your villa
trespasser and a witness while you cling on your pillow
you bettah watch your back before she turn into a killah
best for you and the situation not to call the beaner
to be a true player you have to know how to play
if she say you're not, convince her, say you're gay
never admit to a word when she say
makes a claim and you tell her baby no way

chorus 2
but she caught me on the counter
it wasn't me
saw me banging on the sofa
it wasn't me
I even had her in the shower
it wasn't me
she even caught me on camera
it wasn't me
she saw the marks on my shoulder
it wasn't me
heard the words that I told her
it wasn't me
heard the screaming getting louder
it wasn't me
she stayed until it was over

(chorus 1)RikRok

I had tried to keep her from what she was about to see
why should she believe me when I told her it wasn't me

(Shaggy)
make sure she knows it's not you and lead her on da right prefix
whenever you should see her make da giggolo flex
as funny as it be by you, it not that complex
seein is believin so you better change your specs
you know she not gonna be worrying bout things from the past
hardly recollecting and then she'll go to noontime mass
Rik-boy your answer: go over there
but if she pack a gun you know you better run fast

(chorus 2)
(chorus 1)
RikRok
how could I forget that I had given her an extra key
all this time she was standing there she never took her eyes off me

gonna tell her that I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused
I've been listenin' to your reasonin' it makes no sense at all
we should tell her that I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused
you may think that you're a player but you're completely lost

cause I say

(chorus 1)
