Christmas is in the air!
Shaggy has announced a 15-track Christmas album that will feature some of dancehall and reggae’s finest.
The album, titled Christmas In The Islands, will be a 15-track release that includes Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Shenseea, Junior Reid, Ne-Yo, Romain Virgo and several others.
“We enlisted some of Jamaica’s leading, iconic artistes to participate…we hope to transport listeners and share how we celebrate Christmas in the Islands!”– Shaggy
The Boombastic artiste said, “Since I was a child, I can remember seeing tourists flock to Jamaica during Christmastime for some sun, fun, rum, and great parties!”
The release continued, “Our island is all about family, friends, food, great beaches, warm, welcoming people, and a strong culture, which is the perfect recipe for a joyous Christmas, so we decided to embody all of that into one album.”
Christmas In The Islands will feature original music, as well as remakes of holiday classics including Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, which was released yesterday.
“We enlisted some of Jamaica’s leading, iconic artistes to participate, and with guests like Ne-Yo and Joss Stone, who frequent Jamaica during the holiday season, we hope to transport listeners and share how we celebrate Christmas in the Islands!”
