Commentary by Mitch Santell
There appears to be a true trend in 2018 of more and more established Pop Stars trending toward Reggae Music.
It's one of this year's most unlikely collaborations. Shaggy is a Jamaican dance hall star with an unmistakable voice and raunchy hits like 1995's "Boombastic" and 2000's "It Wasn't Me." Rock star Sting, his partner, is a little more buttoned-up in comparison. But despite being from two different corners of the music world, the pair's first collaboration album 44/876, out now, is a meeting of the minds — one that's so unexpected, it works in their favor.

Want to know a secret? Answer: The best Reggae drummer you may ever meet is Stewart Copeland!
In researching Stewart Copeland, I found this on Wikipedia:
Copeland is known for precise, energetic, and creative reggae-influenced drumming along with a Lebanese-influenced style. His distinctive sound centers on a hard, high-pitched crack on a snare or rimshot, and subtle hi-hat work with understated flourishes.
