Why I turned down chance to feature in Rihanna’s album – Shaggy

Singer Shaggy has revealed why he turned down a chance to feature in Rihanna’s album.

According to him, he turned the offer down because he was told to audition before he gets to feature in the album.

“They approached me for the Rihanna project, yeah,” he admitted.

“There’s a lot of great people involved, but for me, I didn’t need to audition to be on the record. I’ll leave that to younger guys. But from what I hear, it should be good.”

Shaggy still had positive thing to say about Rihanna’s ‘Caribbean dancehall-inspired album.’

‘“It’s healthy competition,” he said. “Dancehall is in a good place but we need as many people to do this art form as possible. When it crosses over and becomes popular with artists from other genres and other cultures, that can only be good.”
