They even covered Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams.”
Sting and Shaggy joined forces and stopped by NPR’s Tiny Desk this week.
The rock legend and reggae legend performed three select tracks. The duo sad a rendition os Sting’s 1987 single “Englishman in New York” that saw Shaggy remixing the lyrics. They also ran through their song, “Don’t Make Me Wait,” which (in case you missed it) was featured on their 2018 collaborative album, 44/876.
They ended the set with a mashup of Sting’s 1993 “Shape of My Heart” and Juice WRLD’s 2018 interpolation of it, “Lucid Dreams” Sting reportedly owns 85 percent of the royalties for the rapper’s reworking.
