Dubbed the biggest black recording star that Britain has ever produced, the R&B singer-songwriter has sold more than 30 million records worldwide, achieving number one spot on pop charts in the UK, USA, Australia, Germany and Holland. 
The Trinidadian-English musician won a Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for Caribbean Queen (No More Love On The Run), and in 1987 was nominated for the BRIT Award for Best British Male Artist. His other hits include ‘When The Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going’, ‘Love Really Hurts Without You’, ‘Suddenly’ and ‘Red Light Spells Danger’.

Shaggy’s subsequent single, “Boombastic,” topped the UK charts again, and reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. Since then he’s continued to make history year after year, blazing an enviable trail of hits and garnering GRAMMY nominations for his progressive work.

Shaggy has sold over 30 million albums to date, racking up no fewer than eight singles in the Billboard Hot 100, including two that went to No. 1, as well as seven albums on the Billboard 200, with four in the Top 40. The numbers in the UK equally impressive: sixteen Top 40 singles, nine of them reaching the Top 10 and four that shot to No. 1, including “It Wasn’t Me,” the biggest-selling collaboration in UK chart history, outpacing chart-topping duets by the likes of Eminem, Calvin Harris, and Rihanna.

And the smash records keep on coming, from the certified-diamond 2000 album Hotshot, which boasted not one but two No. 1 singles, through to 44/876, a collaborative project with British rock icon Sting, which clocked millions of streams, entered the Top 40 in 14 different countries, has remained atop the Billboard Reggae Album chart for over 4 months, and earned Shaggy his second GRAMMY Award win and the seventh nomination of his career to date.
