Shaggy releases a song with Sean Paul and Sean Kingston
For those of you that thought you'd never hear another Shaggy song again, you're in for a sappy surprise. The Jamaican-born Raggae artist released "Rise Again" to raise money for the Digicel Haiti Relief Fund. It was Shaggy's first release with an artist well-known in the U.S. since he cut the aptly named "Fading Away" with Kevin Rudolf and Lil' Jon, where he refers to himself as the "undisputed champion with a new number one." Before that, his best-known single was "What's Love" with Akon for his 2007 album "Intoxication." Apparently the song was written in less than a day, and features vocal tracks from Sean Paul and Sean Kingston.
Running at just under six minutes, the song also features Barbadian artists Alison Hinds, Shontelle Layne and Edwin Yearwood; Trinidadian soca artists David Rudder, Kees Dieffenthaller and Destra Garcia; Jamaican reggae artists Tessanne Chin and Etana and a lone Haitian artist called Belo.
KDWB Program Director told us today that "right now I don't see any airplay on it," although he hasn't listened to the song.
