SHAGGY has launched his own record label, BIG YARD, through MCA.

According to reports in the US, Shaggy, currently at Number One in Britain with ‘It Wasn’t Me’, has signed Rayvon and Ricardo ‘RikRok’ Ducent, who sing backing vocals on ‘It Wasn’t Me’ and ‘Angel’.

By way of returning the compliment, Shaggy will appear on both artists’ debut solo albums, which are slated for release in June.

They are currently recording in New York with Shaun Pizzonia, the producer of Shaggy’s album, ‘Hotshot (2000)’, which is currently in its fourth week at the top of the US album chart.
