Weekend Music: Watch Shaggy Perform His New Hit, “When She’s Around” with Rwanda Star Bruce Melodie


Reggae icon Shaggy performed his new hit, “When She’s Around,” on “Good Morning America” this week with Bruce Melodie. Bruce has such a great voice, and he hails from Rwanda. Shaggy is just always jubilant and upbeat, with a lilting vocal you can’t forget.

The pair made the rounds on other ABC outlets like “Nightline” and “Live with Kelly and Mark.”

“When She’s Around” has 10 million views across all social platforms and is starting to take off on radio. Once you hear it, you want to hear it again.

I love the whole Shaggy Renaissance. He did a Grammy nominated Sinatra album produced by Sting and won a Grammy with Sting for Best Reggae album. Viva Shaggy!
