Sting And Shaggy Speak On Collaborative Release


Sting and Shaggy have both opened up about their forthcoming duo album. The release, titled 44/876, is a Caribbean-inspired release and is due out in April. Speaking of the release, Sting said the collaboration came naturally.

"We just had a rapport," Sting revealed to Billboard. "I decided a joint venture was much more exciting than him just guesting."

He adds that some of the music is topical and touches on the #MeToo movement:

"I think it's apropos of the message of the moment. We need to listen to women's timetable and needs, because I know what women want: They want to be asked what they want. I've learned that and you need to respect that. . . . It's an important conversation that needs to be had and learning needs to take place."

Shaggy adds:

"It's respectful to the female. Take the #MeToo out of it -- let's talk about relationships between men and women. There's going to be a push and pull in every relationship. . . . I know this person is going to be my soul mate, but she says, 'I need more time.' By nature, women are more cautious than men. Men are like 'let's go.'"
