Sting & Shaggy Perform ‘Tiny Desk Concert’
Sting and Shaggy are featured in the latest installment of NPR Music’s ongoing Tiny Desk Concert video series. The Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer and reggae superstar teamed with guitarist Dominic Miller and vocalists Gene Noble and Melissa Musique for a set at Bob Boilen’s desk.
The quintet opened with “Englishman In New York” from Sting’s 1987 album, …Nothing Like The Sun. Shaggy changed the lyrics to “Jamaican in New York” for his portion of the song. “I never sang that song before 8 p.m. … ever,” Sting exclaimed at the conclusion of “Englishman In New York.” The pair then led their band through “Don’t Make Me Wait” from their collaborative 2018 album, 44/876. For the finale, the ensemble presented a mash-up of Sting’s “Shape Of My Heart” and “Lucid Dreams” by Juice Wrld.
