Shaggy and Sting won Best Reggae Album Grammy at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.
The duo won the trophy for their collaborative album, 44/876, which was released on April 20, 2018. The project is without a doubt, one of the leading reggae/dancehall efforts released last year and was good enough to give Shaggy his second Grammy award. The dancehall legend won his first Grammy in 1996 when his debut album “Bombastic” won Best Reggae Album. Over the years, he has received five more nominations including a nod for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocal for his classic single “It Wasn’t Me” featuring Rikrok.
In the reggae category, Shaggy beat out competitions from Etana (Reggae Forever), Black Uhuru (As the World Turns), Ziggy Marley (Rebellion Rises), and Protoje (A Matter of Time). Ziggy Marley already won eight Grammys in the category leaving him the most decorated reggae artist.
Shaggy and Sting album, 44/876, debut at number one on the Billboard Reggae Chart and went on to spend 23 non-consecutive weeks at the top of the chart with 52,000 copies sold.
Speaking with Billboard, Shaggy says he is already prepping his new solo album Wah Gwaan. “In a perfect world it would be really great for us to release the new album Wah Gwaan after that,” he said. “Leave it to the universe. Then we have a couple of singles that we’re gonna put out after the Grammys.”
Slain Dancehall Artiste Keshan Had Big Plans For Her Career
Vybz Kartel and the rest of the dancehall community are still mourning the death of up-and-coming female artiste, Keshan.
As family, friends, and fans struggle to come to terms with the untimely death of dancehall artiste Keshan, more details concerning the investigation have begun to emerge. According to the Star, an unidentified family member spoke out about Keshan’s budding success that came to a fatal halt. “She was in the process of getting her stock of human hair and lashes, and in addition to that, she had big plans of continuing with her music career,” the source shared.
Heartbroken fans have been openly mourning the deceased aspiring entrepreneur and artiste, sharing their condolences online. Some fans have also spoken their regrets about all the unheard music that Keshan had up her sleeve that will never see the light of day.
Keshan, whose real name is Kenneisha Brown, was known for her collaborative efforts with dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel on tracks like “The Goods” and “Bubble Yu Body.” She was described as humble, caring, and a bit reserved but lovable. Dancehall fans are saddened by the news about the recently departed entertainer who is said to have been involved in a lover’s quarrel that escalated quickly.
Sources revealed that Keshan was seeing a father of two who was less than forthcoming about his relations with the mother of his child. According to her family member, Keshan found out about the man’s duplicity and later found him at the home of the other female partner. They engaged in a brawl resulting in the licensed firearm holder allegedly getting stabbed several times before firing the shot that took the dancehall artiste’s life.
The family of the deceased has since disputed the integrity of the initial police report. “My understanding is that he took her to the hospital after all this. What I can’t understand is it’s being said she stabbed him 3 times, however, he managed to drive her to the hospital. How? I can’t wrap my head around it,” the source questioned.
We hope the details can be clarified soon so that the family can grieve without a perturbed conscience and we can all have the closure we need.

21 Savage Says ‘Savage Mode 2’ With Metro Boomin Is Coming Soon
21 Savage and Metro Boomin are finally ready to give us, Savage Mode 2.
At the end of his performance in Los Angeles, 21 Savage brought out producer Metro Boomin to end the show with him. The two have worked together several times in the past, including their 2016 mixtape Savage Mode. And it looks like the duo isn’t done yet. As the two were wrapping up his set for the night, 21 Savage thanked the LA crowd before shouting out a “RIP” to the late west coast rapper Nipsey Hussle.
In a video that’s been buzzing around the internet, you can hear the ATL/UK rapper scream “Savage Mode 2 is on the mother f**kin way!,” just as he exited the stage.

Savage Mode went certified gold by the RIAA according to Billboard, and featured standout hits like “X” featuring Future and “No Heart.” 21 Savage teased sequel to the project in a 2016 interview with the Fader, claiming he and Metro Boomin had 20 to 30 songs left in the vault.
New music from 21 would be great, but some of us are still bumping his December 2018 album I am > I was. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard top 200 charts, a first for the 26-year-old rapper. It’s also good to see 21 Savage performing and dropping music amidst an on-going deportation case after ICE held him in detention back in February. ICE officials revealed that the rapper is a United Kingdom citizen who overstayed his visa when he entered the United States in 2005, news that came as a shock to the hip-hop community.
21 Savage and Metro Boomin dropped a single together in January 2018 called “Pause,” a song that was previewed in 2015.
