Shaggy feat. Rayvon – It Wasn’t Me (Hot Shot 2020) | New Single
Two decades have now elapsed since the release of Shaggy’s iconic album “Hot Shot”.
The album is certified diamond (sold more than 10 million in the States) and “It Wasn’t Me” proved to be one of the landmark tracks on it that brought reggae and dancehall to a new audience.
“To commemorate this milestone, I decided to reproduce this classic hit”, Shaggy commented. “In doing so, I wanted to make sure we stayed true to the integrity of the original recording while finding ways to modernize it, being that the song remains a recurrent hit, garnering a new & younger fan base each year.” He has enlisted the vocal assistance of his long-time collaborator Rayvon for the 2020 retake.
“Rayvon is one of the smoothest reggae voices in the game”, he adds. “The end result feels fresh and revitalized while maintaining its pop sensibility and dancehall roots.”
The original album also featured the hits “Angel” and “Strength Of A Woman”, and set a pathway for dancehall in the millennium. To celebrate the 20th anniversary a brand new album entitled “Hot Shot 2020” will soon be released featuring revamped and modernized versions of all of Shaggy’s most beloved hits such as “Angel,” “Boombastic,” “Oh Carolina,” among many others, plus a few other surprises!
