This quintessential reggae Christmas themed collection from multiple Grammy Award-winning global reggae/dancehall and pop music icon Shaggy puts a Caribbean twist on traditional Christmas cheer with 15 tracks of island-infused holiday songs, featuring guest performances from Beenie Man, Joss Stone, Bounty Killer, Junior Reid, Ne-Yo, Romain Virgo, Ritchie Stephens, Conkarah and others. The album includes new, original music as well as a modern reggae cover of the classic “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” among other holiday favorites.
Shaggy says, “Since I was a child, I can remember seeing tourists flock to Jamaica during Christmastime for some sun, fun, rum, and great parties! 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. We enlisted some of Jamaica’s leading, iconic artists 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!”
Christmas in the Islands was produced by Tony “CD” Kelly, iLLWayno, Shane Hoosong, Jerry Fuentes, Martin “Cherry Cherry Boom Boom” Kierszenbaum and Richie D. and was mixed by 4x Grammy Award winner Robert “Hitmixer” Orton.
