Boombastic followed as the 3rd studio album. It was released on 11 July 1995. More than one million copies were sold only in the US, as well as more than 500,000 copies in the UK. For this album 5 singles were released: "In the summertime", a Mungo Jerry cover, "Mr. Boombastic" the single hits number 1 in the UK, # 3 in the Billboard Hot 100 and # 1 on the Billboard R 'n B Charts, 'Why you treat me so bad", " The Train is coming "and" Day Oh ".

Budda Junky Swan), 13."How Much More", 14."Gal Yu a Pepper"

Midnite Lover is Shaggy's fourth studio album, released back on 24th of August, 1997. He tried deliberately to strike smoother, quieter tones. Unfortunately, the sale figures were much worst than they are for "Boombastic". In the UK for example, only 50,000 units were sold. Midnite Lover was the first album on which a song title is identical with the album title. This series is expected to continue up to "Intoxication". Two singles were released: "Piece of My Heart" and "My Dream".

Tracklist:1."My Dream", 2."Perfect Song" - (ft. Maxi Priest), 3."Tender Love", 4."Geenie" (ft. Brian and Tony Gold), 5."Sexy Body Girls", 6."Piece of My Heart" (ft.

Hot Shot as the fifth studio album followed. It was released on 8 August 2000  in the U.S. before it was finally released on 8 April 2001 in Europe. Hot Shot is Shaggy's most successful album to date. It reached Diamond status in the United States and was sold nearly 11 million times. Worldwide, about 15 million units were sold. Duue to the great success of the album, a remix album, entitled "Hot Shot Ultramix" was released a few month later. 5 singles were decoupled: "It was not me," "Angel," Shaggy's most successful single, "Hope", "Dance and shout" and "Luv me luv me".

Tracklist: 1."Hot Shot", 2."Lonely Lover" (Ft. Prof. T), 3."Dance & Shout" (Ft. Pee Wee), 4."Leave It To Me", 5."Angel" (Ft. Rayvon), 6."Hope" (Ft.Mister Mydas), 7."Keep'n It Real", 8."Luv Me, Luv Me" (Ft. Samantha Cole), 9."Freaky Girl" (Featuring The Kraft), 10."It Wasn't Me" (Ft."RikRok"), 11."Not Fair" (Ft. Tony "Rude" Seawright), 12."Hey Love", 13. "Why Me Lord?", 14."Chica Bonita" (Ft."RikRok"), 15."Dance & Shout"

 

Of course a huge amount of marketing was rolled out for the Hot Shot album. The PR machine was in full swing and there was, among many other things, a rather amusing promotional clip for the album, which you can admire here!

Clothes Drop was released after a small break on the second September 2005 as the seventh studio album and is stylistically a change to the two previous albums. The reference to Pop was noticeably reduced, but reggae elements were again increasingly installed. Again, three singles were released: "Wild2nite", "Ultimatum" and "Ready fi di ride". Clothes Drop is also the last album which was released alongside the CD as vinyl and even as MC.

In this album, strong R & B elements were installed. The album was released on 22 October 2007 and 4 singles were released: "Church Heathen", "Bonafide Girl", "What's love" and "Feel the rush". The Album was nominated for a Grammy in 2009 for 'Best Reggae Album'.

Summer in Kingston is Shaggy's ninth Studio album first appeared as a digital download on 19 July 2011. It is also the shortest album to date by the artist with only 8 tracks. On 7 February 2012 it was also issued in physical form under the name "Lava Edition" with two more tracks ("Hurting" + "She gives me love"). The album spawned two extractions out: "Sugarcane" and "Fuck the recession." This album was intended more for the North and South American market. The Album was nominated for a Grammy in 2012 for 'Best Reggae Album'.

[Translate to Englisch:] Tracklist: 1."Just Another Girl" (ft. Tarrus Riley), 2."Sugarcane, 3."Dame" (ft. Celia), 4."Feeling Alive" (ft.

Rise is the counterpart to "Summer in Kingston" for the European market, for which it was made compliant with a new look and some bonus tracks. It can be seen as Shaggy's tenth Studio album, which appeared on 28 September 2012. Rise contains all the songs from Summer in Kingston, plus in addition two previously released singles called "Girls just wanna have fun" ft. Eve and "World Citizen" with Jahcoustix.

 Out of many one music is Shaggy's 11th Studio album in over 25 years of his career and was published at 24.9. 2013. Shaggy breaks with this album with some entrenched traditions of all albums and singles before: the most serious difference certainly is the fact that for the first time in Shaggy's 25 year career no picture of himself is on the cover of the album and single releases but instead sumptuous images such as a sea of roses or the new Shaggy coat of arms formed out of musical instruments, can be seen. Furthermore, it is Shaggy's first pure Roots Reggae album and this time he renounced to all long-term Co-Partner such as Rayvon, Red Fox, Cecile, Rik Rok and Maxi Priest. The name of the album derives from the Jamaican word "Out of many one people". The three extractions are "Fight this Feeling" ft. Beres Hammond, "You Girl" ft. Ne-Yo and "If U slip U slide" ft. Melissa Musique! The album was nominated for a Grammy in 2015 for 'Best Reggae Album'. 

[Translate to Englisch:] Tracklist: 1. "If U Slip U Slide (You Could Be Mine)" (FT. Melissa Musique), 2. "Till I Kissed Ya" (FT. Samira), 3. "Like Never Before" (FT. Cocoa Tea & Joe), 4."Fight This Feeling" (FT.. Beres Hammond), 5. "All We Need Is Love" (FT.. Konshens & Jimmy Cozier), "6. Money & Friends", 7. "You Girl" (FT. Ne-Yo), 8. "Deadly Love" (FT..

Of course a huge amount of marketing was rolled out for Shaggy´s hit-album '44/87'. The PR machine was in full swing and there was, among many other things, a rather amusing promotional clip, which you can watch here!

Shaggy Interview about 'Wah Gwaan', his own carreer, dancehall, the Music Industry, Grammy and his son

Shaggy and Friends would be the ninth studio album by Shaggy. It was published on 19 January 2011 and half a year before Summer in Kingston. But Shaggy separated in December 2010 by his longtime producer Robert Livingston (for more information see BigYardultramix). The album has been done after the separation. Livingston packed already produced Shaggy songs on an album, and released it without the knowledge of the artist. Shaggy has never been authorized and approved this album and therefore he goes the legal way against it. For this reason, it is also the only album that did not appear in physical form, only as a digital download. Even the name is confusing, because Shaggy is doing his charitable activities for the Bustamante Children's Hospital under the name "Shaggy and Friends" and would therefore never name an album this way.

Tracklist: 1."Too Cute" (ft. Ty-Arie), 2."Good Times Roll" (ft.Ty-Arie), 3."Believer" (ft. Jaiden), 4."Everything You Need" (ft. Shaun Pizzonia), 5."Can't Fight This Feeling" (ft. Chris Birch), 6."Thank You" (ft.'RikRok'), 7."Shaggy & Rayvon Show" (ft. Rayvon), 8."I'm Rebel" (ft. Chris Birch), 9."This Could Be Your Day" (ft. Brian and Tony Gold), 10."I'm Sorry" (ft. Qwote), 11."Holla At You" (ft. D-lynx), 12."Gal Roll" (ft. D-lynx), 13."You See Him Face" (ft. Chris Martin), 14."Needle Eye" (ft. Rayvon);

Unfortunately there is a real wild growth among the "best of" albums by Shaggy. To get some light onto this, I tried here to compile a chronological list of them with the respective tracklists:

 

Mr. Lover Lover, The best of Shaggy, Part 1 oder "Utlimate Shaggy Collection" According to Amazon.com, 2 Versions of this album should exist: the American version of Mr. Lover Lover was once again intended to include material from Shaggy's first four albums, the original version of "Luv Me, Luv Me", and three brand new tracks - "The Reggae Virus", "Better Not Be" and "Hot Gal". The European version should contain "Better not be" instead of "True dat". However, when the album was released on January 29, 2002, both the European and American versions of the album had an identical tracklisting, neither containing the three brand new tracks.

1."Boombastic" (Sting Remix),  2. "In the Summertime" (featuring Rayvon), 3."Oh Carolina", 4."Luv Me, Luv Me" (featuring Janet Jackson), 5."Nice And Lovely", 6."The Train Is Coming" (featuring Ken Boothe), 7."Why You Treat Me So Bad" (featuring Grand Puba), 8. "Big Up" (featuring Rayvon), 9."Piece of My Heart" (featuring Marsha), 10."Sexy Body Girls", 11."Something Different" (featuring Wayne Wonder), 12."That Girl" (featuring Maxi Priest and Rayvon), 13."Get Up, Stand up", 14."Boombastic";

 

 

Boombastic Hits is the second compilation album released by Shaggy. The album was released on November 6, 2003. The album features a range of material from Shaggy's albums "Boombastic" and "Midnite Lover", as well as the b-side "One Burner", which had previously never been included on any of Shaggy's albums.

1."Boombastic", 2. "Piece of My Heart" (featuring Marsha), 3."Something Different" (featuring Wayne Wonder), 4."Perfect Song" (featuring Maxi Priest), 5."One Burner", 6."Heartbreak Suzie" (featuring Gold Mine), 7."My Dream", 8."Geenie" (featuring Brian and Tony Gold), 9."Forgive Them Father", 10."Midnite Lover", 11."Gal You a Pepper", 12."In the Summertime" (Sting vs. Shaggy Remix);

 

 

The best of Shaggy is the third compilation album released by Shaggy. The album was released through joint agreement between EMI and Virgin Records. The album was released on August 4, 2008 and includes material from his first four studioalbums, as well as his collaboration with Maxi Priest, from his album Man With The Fun. As Shaggy's later releases were under a different record label, EMI and Virgin did not hold the right to release tracks from them.

1."Boombastic" (Album Version), 2."In the Summertime" (featuring Rayvon), 3."Oh Carolina", 4."That Girl" (featuring Maxi Priest) , 5."Piece of My Heart" (featuring Marsha Morrison), 6."Sexy Body Girls", 7."Why You Treat Me So Bad" (featuring Grand Puba), 8."Big Up" (featuring Rayvon), 9."Soon Be Done", 10."Woman A Pressure Me", 11."The Train Is Coming" (featuring Ken Boothe), 12."Geenie" (featuring Brian and Tony Gold);

 

 

Best of Shaggy- The boombastic collection is the fourth compilation album released Shaggy. The album was released in the United Kingdom on August 25, 2008. It reached #22 on the UK Albums Chart. The album features material from all eight of Shaggy's previous studio albums, making it his only compilation to include material from post-Hot Shot.

1."Boombastic", 2."Strength of a Woman", 3."Angel" (featuring Rayvon), 4."Hey Sexy Lady" (featuring Brian and Tony Gold), 5."Feel the Rush" (featuring Trix & Flix), 6."Those Days" (featuring Na'sha), 7."Don't Ask Her That" (featuring Nicole Scherzinger), 8."It Wasn't Me" (featuring Ricardo 'RikRok' Ducent), 9."Hope" (featuring Prince Mydas), 10."In the Summertime" (featuring Rayvon), 11."Luv Me, Luv Me" (featuring Samantha Cole), 12."Oh Carolina", 13."Ready fi di Ride", 14."Church Heathen", 15."Leave It to Me" (featuring Brian and Tony Gold), 16."Would You Be" (featuring Brian Thompson), 17."Wild 2nite" (featuring Olivia), 18."Gone with Angels";

 

 

 

F A C T S

For Shaggy's biggest tour yet, the Hot-Shot-Tour in 2000 and 2001, a tour programme was issued. It is a 20-page glossy program of the finest quality with removable poster. Content is facts about Shaggy's everyday life as a star on the road, an insight into the creation of hot-shot, a short biography and a lot of facts about the tour and the responsible team.

When it became clear that hot shot hits all recent sales figures (with the exception of Bob Marley's posthumous album "Legend") in the reggae business, even a counter has been set up, which began counting from about 9 million copies, and finally stopped just before 20 Mio!!

 

As already mentioned above, no efforts were to high for the hot shot tour back in 2001. Everyone should know that HE, Mr. Hot Shot, is in town. A help was the famous "hot shot banana" bus, which represented Shaggy's tour bus within the US.

The Hot Shot album was in many respects decisive. With his song "Angel" Shaggy is also found in the Guinness Book of World-Records. The song held the record for most radio plays in one week

You can compare Shaggy's so far most successful album "Hot Shot" from the year 2000 in many ways with his second most successful album "44/876" from the year 2018. As the numbers show, "44/876" is even more successful than "Hot Shot" (marked in green) in some countries, or it has entered the charts in some countries that "Hot Shot" could not conquer at the time (marked in orange).
