Los Angeles, Jan 14 (IANS) British singer Sting has teamed up with Jamaican rapper Shaggy to release a reggae album this year.
The pair's first single "Don't Make Me Wait" is set for release on February 2 and, although fans may find it hard to envision their voices together, Sting, whose real name is Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, is adamant they have "a lot in common."
"We have a lot in common. We're both married to very strong women. We both come from small islands that used to belong to the queen. And we like each other. We like each other's voices and music and vibe. We're like kindred spirits," Sting told York Post newspaper Page Six column, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The duo debuted their new single in Jamaica last week at a Shaggy and Friends charity concert raising money for Bustamante Hospital for Children.
