  • ShaggyBorn Orville Richard Burrell and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Shaggy got his start as a club DJ in New York City's burgeoning dancehall scene soon after moving to Brooklyn in his teens. Not long after serving four years in the U.S. Marines (including two tours of duty in the Middle East as part of Operation Desert Storm), he inked his first record deal and quickly scored a global crossover smash with "Oh Carolina."

    As the only diamond-selling dancehall artist in music history, Shaggy, managed by the Cherrytree Music Company, has sold more than 40 million album units to date, in addition to landing eight singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and seven albums on the Billboard 200 (including four in the top 40). He is among the top 3 streamed reggae artists of all time on Spotify (along with Bob Marley & Sean Paul).

    Last year also saw the massive success of his viral hit, "Banana" with fellow Jamaican artist, Conkarah which amassed over 2 billion streams and spawned 50+ million Tik Tok videos with over 5 billion video views for the #bananadrop challenge!

    Shaggy finished out the year with the release of Christmas in the Islands -- a quintessential reggae Christmas themed collection that puts a Caribbean twist on traditional Christmas cheer featuring island-infused holiday songs with guest performances from Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Junior Reid, Ne-Yo, Romain Virgo, Ritchie Stephens, Conkarah, Joss Stone & others.

    Shaggy's latest collaboration -- "Go Down Deh" with fellow reggae icon Sean Paul and the Queen of Dancehall, Spice -- dominated the global reggae charts debuting at #1 on US and Israeli iTunes Reggae, #2 in the UK, Italy and Canada, and Top 10 on Apple Music, iTunes and Deezer in multiple countries including Japan, Jamaica (#1 on Apple Music), Germany and the Netherlands. The correlating music video has amassed over 22 million YouTube views, making history as the first dancehall video to continue trending on the platform for five weeks straight. The iconic Jamaican trio performed their smash hit on a trio of National television shows including Good Morning America's Summer Concert Series (InterviewGo Down Deh Performance Medley Performance)Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Wendy Williams Show (Interview Performance). The track, produced by Shaggy, will be followed by Spice's long-awaited debut album, entitled 10, which Shaggy executive produced.

    Shaggy is currently hosting a new weekly radio show, Shaggy's Yaad, on SiriusXM FLY. The new show features a wide range of contemporary, rare and classic tracks spanning the hip hop, dancehall and reggae genres with insights from Shaggy about the musical history of his Jamaican homeland and its global impact.

    Not only a multi-award-winning songwriter and hitmaker, Shaggy has also long used his platform to strengthen his community and homeland. In 2009, he established the Shaggy Make a Difference Foundation and organized the first of many, Shaggy & Friends benefit concerts, which to date have raised millions for the Bustamante Children's Hospital (the Caribbean's only English-speaking children's hospital, located in Kingston).

    "I always try to bring the fun when I'm performing, and keep everything very lighthearted and joyous," says Shaggy. "I think my purpose and my job is to bring joy to as many people as I can, and I want that to resonate within all of the music that I create."

     


  • TLC
    TLC’s influence transcends genres from pop, hip-hop, R&B to fashion and female empowerment. They continue to define generations.

    Formed in Atlanta in 1990, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, two girls with spirit, smarts and spunk, had their sights set on a big future. Navigating some connections, they started to work on demos with then up-and-coming producer Jermaine Dupri. Feeling a trio could work better than a duo, a manager recommended Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas to round out the sound, with their nicknames spelling out the acronym TLC. By 1992, the girls had not only been signed, but released their first album, Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip, to both critical and commercial success, selling 4 million copies in the Unites States and yielding 3 top ten singles. Along with their ability to blend funk, hip hop and soul, the ladies put female empowerment at the forefront of their songwriting. Two years later they released their breakthrough album, CrazySexyCool, collaborating, as they had with their first record, Dallas Austin, Babyface and Jermaine Dupri, as well as Sean Combs. Met with critical and commercial acclaim once more, Rolling Stone ranked it as one of the best 500 Albums of all time saying it was “highly enjoyable, incredibly influential and a certified classic.” The album produced 4 top five singles on the Billboard charts and TLC won Video of the Year for the song “Waterfalls” at the MTV Awards, making them the first black act to do so.

    1999 brought the release of TLC’s 3rd album, FanMail, also produced by Dallas Austin and, yet again, a commercial and critical triumph. All Music said of the album, “Nobody else makes urban soul quite as engaging as this.” Upon the album’s 20th anniversary in 2019, music scribes from Pitchfork to Rolling Stone to Vibe to Billboard unanimously agreed it was way ahead of its time.

    Several months after Lopes’ untimely death in 2002, TLC released their last album as a trio, 3D. Producers included Raphael Saadiq, Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins and the Neptunes, with Lopes appearing vocally as she had already completed her parts. Billboard called it a “nearly perfect collection,” and the album went double platinum in the United States.

    To date, TLC has sold 85 million Records Worldwide, had 4 Number One singles in the US, 10 Top Ten singles in the US, won 4 Grammy Awards, 5 MTV Awards, 5 Soul Train Awards, and 4 Multi-Platinum selling albums, two of them - Fanmail and CrazySexyCool are certified Diamond by the RIAA and they currently have one billion plays on Pandora. It’s no surprise that TLC is the best-selling American girl group of all time.

    After a long break, TLC stepped back in to the spotlight in 2015 with plans to release new music via a Kickstarter campaign. Asking fans to donate, notable admirers such as New Kids on the Block, Katy Perry, Bette Midler and Justin Timberlake made contributions, making it the fastest funded pop music project in Kickstarter history. The duo called their 5th album TLC, releasing it in 2017 and leading with the track “Way Back” featuring Snoop Dog. Watkins and Thomas hit the road, touring with Nelly, Flo Rida, New Kids on the Block and others.

    The legacy of TLC is in plain sight for all to see; both Destiny’s Child and The Spice Girls have acknowledged that TLC paved the way for their success. Listeners can hear TLC’isms in the current works of Rihanna, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj to name just a few. While all their albums have stood the test of time, it is CrazySexyCool that has become the bellwether to girl power, righteousness, pride and tenacity.

    An album that Billboard said was “timeless” and the NME called “a game-changing R&B classic” is now going to be the centerpiece of an amphitheater tour. The ‘Celebration of “CrazySexyCoo1” tour will find T-Boz and Chilli performing songs from the iconic album, celebrating the 1990s with audiences around North America. In fact, fans are being encouraged to come to the show dressed from that era.
