@AscapExperience : Shaggy's Boombastic Journey - Home Edition 2020

ASCAP Experience Home Edition

Global recording star, DJ, actor, and philanthropist Shaggy is undoubtedly one of reggae music's most influential cultural ambassadors. In the '90s and early '2000s, he brought dancehall to the mainstream with massive hits like "Boombastic", "In the Summertime", "It Wasn't Me", and "Angel". While Shaggy has long embraced opportunities to collaborate with artists from across the genre spectrum (including Sting, on their Grammy-Winning joint album 44/876), he's always stayed true to his passion for the music that made him a household name. In this illuminating session, Shaggy and his manager Martin Kierszenbaum will reveal how this one-of-a-kind music creator got to where he is now, how he's sustained his success and the enduring impact of dancehall. You'll also get the inside scoop on Hot Shot 2020, and updated version of his breakthrough 2000 record Hot Shot dropping just in time for its 20th anniversary. Moderated by ASCAP EVP of membership John Tiita.
