The reggae singer and rapper Shaggy hails from Kingston, Jamaica. When he was 18 years old, he moved to New York with his mother. He worked in the United States Marine Corps and went on to pursue a career in music.

The R&B group Blackstreet were founded by Chauncey “Black” Hannibal and Teddy Riley. The line-up includes Chauncey, Levi Little, Mark Middleton and Eric Williams. The group’s hit songs include Don’t Leave Me and (Money Can’t) Buy Me Love.

Famous for their mix of soul and hip-hop, their most famous song is No Diggity. The 1996 smash hit featured Dr Dre and Queen Pen.
