On November 16 Shaggy brought his upbeat new disc with its dancehall rocking fusions that blend well with the Shaggy pop style to Florida's Saw Grass Mills Mall. FYE Music hosted this southern USA unveiling of "Intoxication," and Shaggy demonstrated why he is indeed one of Jamaica's most celebrated cultural figures.

Accompanied by Rik Rok, Shaggy hung out with his fans; and he not only signed CDs but was also well-disposed to all requests for photo opportunities. One fan commended Shaggy's warmth that was brought more to light, she said, as she observed his genuine interaction with a disabled young fan.


"Intoxication" and its radio rockers mixture of raunchy driving rhythms and hooking collaborations with artistes like Sizzla and Rik Rok, is surely a vehicle for songs that will soon hit charts worldwide.
