Shaggy has revealed that he politely stepped away from Rihanna‘s next album because he felt he was being forced to audition for a spot on the set.
Full story below…
Rihanna has been working with her friends at Roc Nation to create an album which best reflects her world view as it is today following the release of ‘ANTI.’
Shaggy, the iconic musician whose art helped to push Caribbean music to global heights, has now revealed that he is no longer part of the journey because he felt he was being asked to prove himself to the star and her crew of creatives.
He told the Daily Star…
They approached me for the Rihanna project, yeah. 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. From what I hear it should be good.
Some fans suspect that the some of the material the performer submitted for the album may not have been to Rihanna‘s taste.
Quite interestingly, he wouldn’t be the first veteran to miss out on or step away from an album recorded by a younger artist. For, Phil Collins is said to have submitted tracks he hoped Adele would use for her latest album ’25.’
