Reggae a lot less musical – Shaggy

Reggae a lot less musical – Shaggy

Shaggy thinks reggae is a lot less musical these days. The Wasn’t Me singer made the comments during an interview with India’s just before his performance this weekend.

Shaggy who is in India for a three-city performance will see his birthday (October 22) also catching him there.

“I think it’s a lot less musical these days. There’s a lot of Electronic music compared to traditional musical instrumentation. Hopefully, we will see the return of the singer/songwriter. Music has to pass cycles; we have to hang on to its coat-tails and enjoy the ride.”

He also said he will be using his opportunity there to catch up on some sightseeing and soaking up as much of the culture as he can.

The artiste is promising the Indians an energetic show as he goes through his catalogue of hits.

Speaking of the music he said he has evolved.

“I’ve seen music grow and we’re on another path right now with That Love. We’re just continuing to make great music that comes from the heart. As long as we continue to entertain and keep ourselves relevant, we’re on the right path.”

Commenting on how he has managed to sustain his career so long, Shaggy said he would be the first person to be bored with himself and the trick is in not overstaying your welcome and reinvention.

“I reinvent because I don’t want to be bored with what I do.”
