Sting and Shaggy’s new, island-inspired collaborative album 44/876 is available now at all retailers and digital platforms on A&M/Interscope Records (see below for album tracklistings & configurations).


In creating 44/876, Sting and Shaggy drew from the many surprising connections at the heart of their music. With its title referencing their home country codes, 44/876 first and foremost honors the duo’s love for Jamaica: Shaggy’s homeland, and the place where Sting penned such classics as The Police’s “Every Breath You Take.” 


Furthering each artist’s exploration of reggae and its transcendent rhythms, the lead single “Don’t Make Me Wait” – which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s digital reggae singles chart – came to life after the musicians were introduced by Martin Kierszenbaum (Sting’s manager, Chairman of The Cherrytree Music Company and Shaggy’s former A&R executive). The correlating music video (, directed by Gil Green, was filmed in Kingston, Jamaica and has garnered over 8.5 million views on YouTube.
