Hot Shot 2020 features updated versions of the biggest hits and most beloved fan favourites across Shaggy’s catalog, along with a number of never-before-heard tracks.

Throughout the new album, Shaggy showcases the boundary-breaking musicality and world class songwriting chops that have made him a global phenomenon. In shaping the album’s modern sound, he paid careful attention to the rhythmic component of each track, often introducing elements of trap, electronic music, and modern-day hip-hop. As a result, Hot Shot 2020 unfolds with a complex and commanding sonic palette—heavier beats, harder-hitting drums, potent bass lines—all the while preserving the spirit and integrity of the original versions.
 
While Shaggy’s exuberant side shines on many of Hot Shot 2020’s tracks—including an electro-meets-dancehall reworking of his platinum-selling single “Boombastic”—the album also spotlights his undeniable sensitivity on songs like “Strength of a Woman.” 
 
Further revealing the eclectic sensibilities at the heart of Shaggy’s artistry, Hot Shot 2020 offers some high-spirited nuggets. Along with an infectiously playful version of “Under the Sea” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid (Shaggy recently starred as Sebastian for ABC’s live televised special), the new album includes his super-charged rendition of Barbadian artist Eddy Grant’s “Electric Avenue” (he first performed the song at the 2019 benefit concert for the Rainforest Fund; a charity co-founded by Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler). Another track closely tied to Shaggy’s heritage is his horn-powered, groove-worthy cover of Peter Tosh’s rebel-minded “Buk-In-Hamm Palace.”
