Shabba Ranks – Ting-A-ling

Starting out on the King Jammys Superpower sound system in Jamaica, Shabba quickly emerged on the Jamaican and international stages in the late 1980’s with a number of fellow artists. These include the British vocalist Maxi Priest; reggae singers Cocoa Tea, Crystal, and Mykal Rose and R&B singer Johnny Gill; in addition to working with luminaries Chuck Berry and American rappers KRS-One and Chubb Rock. His biggest hit non-Jamaican hit was “Mr. Loverman”, although in Jamaica and for many reggae lovers, this was not his best work. Other, more appreciated tracks by reggae enthusiasts, include “Respect”, “Pirates Anthem”, “Trailor Load A Girls”, “Wicked in Bed”, “Caan Dun”, and “Ting A Ling”. He won back-to-back Grammy awards in the Reggae category in 1991 & 1992, the first dancehall deejay to do so.
