The New Oldies: #9 Album of the Year 2021: Shaggy – Christmas in the Islands

Something seems to be missing these days. It seems that record companies, radio stations, and streaming services are pushing some the great established musicians to the background. As a result these veteran artists are not getting the attention they deserve. Enter the Top 10 Album Countdown: The New Oldies. The main point is simple – to make this list you must have at least 20 years of producing established music. The album by the artist must have been released between November 1st, 2020 and October 31st, 2021.

#9 ShaggyChristmas in the Islands

Orville Burrell, aka Shaggy snags the #9 spot with his late 2021 Christmas album release, Christmas in the Islands.

Before you throw darts on why a Christmas Album is on the list, this is a collection of mostly original songs by Shaggy himself that brings a view of Christmas from the Caribbean perspective. It’s not the first time for reggae-themed Christmas music, but this isn’t just any Carribbean sound – it comes in the style that only Mr. Boombastic can deliver.

While there are a couple Christmas Classics on this album that, the original songs will have you listening to this album 12 months a year.
