20-times platinum dancehall superstar Shaggy’s new album Intoxication, out Nov. 13th, 2007 on Big Yard/VP Records, has been getting raves from critics. Here’s what we’ve been hearing:
“Shaggy uses ‘Intoxication’ to once again show that while he and his crew can crank out solid pop, they can match it with cuts that genuinely rock the dancehall.”
“A sharp musical intelligence that merges catchy choruses with deep, fluid growls landing like smart bombs over irresistible beats.”
“With his tricky, rhythmic flow and sly rhymes carrying the show…Shaggy delivers with consistency.”
“Another playful mutant disc of dancehall reggae and pop.”
