EDITORS’ NOTES

It would be wrong to say that Shaggy only has one thing on his mind, but sex is surely what’s closest to his heart. The title track of Clothes Drop boasts that his party-reggae pop-reggae can make that very thing happen, “Ready fi di Ride” gruffly promises “sexual healing,” and “Luv Me Up” celebrates the act as the center of his happy marriage. Shaggy tears himself away from such thoughts by chasing another form of pleasure (“Shut Up and Dance,” featuring the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.i.am), sending a pensive “Letter to My Kids,” and digging some roots on “Back in the Days.” His may not be the first name that comes to mind in a discussion of capitol-A art, but this set is more proof that Shaggy can’t be swayed from his main goal: to entertain.
