Shaggy, Where Does the Name Come From?
Burrell became Shaggy when he was named after the famous cartoon character Shaggy Rogers of the Scooby-Doo television series. Whether Shaggy looks like Shaggy Rogers and possess his attributes is for you to decide, but there is no questioning the fact that the reggae fusion singer Shaggy is a much bigger star than Shaggy Rogers.
Shaggy’s Early Years
Shaggy was born in Kingston, Jamaica. He was very young when his family moved to Brooklyn, New York. While growing up, he took singing lessons and used to sing with his friends in the streets. He later enlisted in the US Marine Corps. It was here that he perfected his signature singing voice.
After leaving the Marines, Shaggy decided to pursue music professionally and became an instant hit with the release of “Oh Carolina.” The song was released in 1993 and it was a dancehall remake of ska song by the Folkes Brothers. The song also featured in the movie Sliver, a Sharon Stone and William Baldwin erotic thriller. Needless it say, it did wonders for Shaggy’s budding career.
“Boombastic” however was a much bigger hit than “Oh Carolina.” Released in 1995, it peaked at No.1 position on charts in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Sweden, the UK and the US. It was also certified platinum in the US by the RIAA. “Boombastic” also featured in a popular Levi’s TV commercial. Later, it featured in movies such as George of the Jungle, Mr. Bean’s Holiday and Barnyard.
Shaggy’s Hot Shot
Hot Shot was Shaggy’s fifth studio album. Released in 2000, it spawned some of his biggest hits such as “Angel” and “It Wasn’t Me.” The album peaked at No.1 position on the US Billboard 200 and was later certified 6× platinum in the US.
In a career spanning over two decades, Shaggy has collaborated with a variety of artists. In 2002, he and Ali G released “Me Julie,” a single from Ali G Indahouse. He has also collaborated with Toots and the Maytals, a famous Jamaican band, on one of its albums titled True Love. This album also won a Grammy Award for the “Best Reggae Album.” He has lent voice to “Rise Again,” a song featuring a variety of artists including Sean Paul. This song was written to support victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake. He has also worked with the Balkan group Sahara. In addition, Shaggy has also headlined tours with other artists such as Cyndi Lauper, Rupee, Fay-Ann Lyons, Natalia, and others.
Shaggy and Cricket
Due to his Jamaican background, Shaggy is also a cricket fan. While there is no information available on him ever playing the sport, he sang the official song of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007, titled “The Game of Love and Unity.” In 2010, Shaggy again performed before cricket fans at the ICC T20 World Championships.
Shaggy’s Other Hits
In addition to his famous songs listed above, here are a few more of Shaggy hits: “Habibi Love,” “Wild 2Nite,” “Repent,” “You Girl” and “I Need Your Love.” In addition, you can also sample a few more of his hits from “Fight This Feeling,” “In The Summertime” and “Mad Mad World.”
