Career
Shaggy resumed his singing career after he left the military. He came to popularity for his song ‘Oh Carolina,’ a remake of a 1958 song by John Folkes, released by the Folkes Brothers. The song also became the first single from his debut album ‘Pure Pleasure’ which was released in 1993. Another hit single from the album was ‘Nice and Lovely’ which reached the 10th position on the New Zealand Music Chart.

His second album ‘Original Doberman’ was released in 1994. It wasn’t much of a success. His third album, ‘Boombastic’, however, was a huge success and peaked at the 34th position on the US Billboard 200.

The song ‘Boombastic’ peaked at the first position on the UK Singles Chart and at number 3 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The song was also later used in the films ‘Barnyard’ and ‘Mr. Bean’s Holiday’. It sold over a million copies in the US and also won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album.

His fourth album ‘Midnite Lover’ (1997) was not very successful. It included tracks such as ‘My Dream’ and ‘Tender Love’. The former also earned a nomination for the Razzie Awards for ‘Worst Song’.

He enjoyed success once again with his fifth album ‘Hot Shot’ in 2000. It stood at the first position on the UK Albums Chart as well as the US Billboard 200. It also entered the charts in various other countries, such as Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany and Canada.

Shaggy’s next albums were ‘Lucky Day’ released in 2002 and ‘Clothes Drop’, released in 2005. The latter earned a Grammy nomination in the ‘Best Reggae Album’ category.
