The release of the joint album Sting (Sting) and Shaggy (Shaggy) under the intriguing title “44 / 876” was held on 20 on April 2018.

It all started when Sting decided to record the song “Don't Make Me Wait” together with reggae singer Shaggy. The musicians enjoyed working together so much that in the end, in just a few weeks, they had a whole album of 16 tracks.

In the title of the album "44 / 876" the telephone codes of Great Britain and Jamaica are encrypted. In an interview with the dailymail.co.uk online edition, Sting said: “We had an instant mutual understanding, a sense of kindred souls. Our voices, however, are completely different, and we were not sure of success. However, the result was pleasantly surprised by all. ”

Jamaican bass guitarist Robert Shakespeare from the group Sly and Robbie, dance star Jamaica Donia, DJ Agent Sasco and guitarist from the accompanying Sting group Dominic Miller took part in the album. The producers were Martin Kirzenbaum, Robert Orton and Tony Lake. The album was released by Interscope Records and A & M music labels.

In our opinion, the track “Waiting For The Break Of Day” is of the greatest interest in the album. It was he who was presented on the channel StingVEVO 13 April 2018. Let's listen.

Much less penetrating in our opinion a song called “Don't Make Me Wait” on the same channel was already presented in February 2018 of the year as a full-fledged video:
