Shaggy joins the #2015bmf Main Stage lineup!
Mr. Bombastic exploded onto the scene in 1993 with his debut album Pure Pleasure, but it was his sophomore album Boombastic that propelled Shaggy onto the world's stage. The album went certified platinum, won a Grammy Award in 1996 for Best Reggae Album and topped the Top 40 Rhythmic charts, Hot 100, and Billboard 200. It seemed as though Mr. Lova Lova from Jamaica couldn't get any higher until 2000 when his fourth album Hotshot went Diamond worldwide and six times Platinum in the United States.
#ShaggyFact: Michael Jackson requested that Shaggy perform at his 30th Anniversary that was held at Madison Square Garden in 2001. At the event Michael asked, “Did you write “It Wasn’t Me” Shaggy?” SHAGGY: “Yes.” MICHAEL: “That’s some S#*t I would have written.”
Shaggy has been making people dance since '93 and his latest hit "I Need Your Love" is going to have Boise Music Festival jammin' all night long!
