- Oh, yeah. We're back now on GMA. Shaggy, he has sold over 40 million albums and he has a deluxe version of his Christmas album, Christmas In The Islands, man. It is out now, and we cannot wait to hear some music. But first, let us chat with our friend, Shaggy. We-- we were enjoying-- - How are you? - --TJ and I, in the commercial break getting all caught up with you, but tell folks about this special here that you have because it came about because of a Disney performance with Sting. - Yeah, Sting and I were doing the Disney performances and a couple of Christmas carols, and we did them in reggae. And he says, you know what? We should do the album like this. You know what I mean? And-- and I got the idea from that point. I said, let's do it. But you know, when you see Christmas in Jamaica, it's a little bit different. There's no snow. There's no Santa coming down the chimney. It's-- it's-- it's rum. It's-- it's surreal. It's friends. It's family. It's food. And it's reggae dancehall, and so I did a reggae dancehall album. And just brought some of the best friends on and made it great. - We want to hear it. We want to hear the performance. But before you go, you have any family traditions you can tell us about quickly for the holidays? - I like being-- you know, we open presents in my house with the family, but we always have, like a brunch, like you know, there's so many breakfasts. Like, Jamaicans have a lot of breakfasts. There's Arkansas fish. There's all of these Jamaican things. There's dumplings. You do all of that. So we do a brunch of all the different types of breakfast with you know, of course, you got your eggnog and your hot chocolate all that stuff to make you vibe with the family. So that's always a big tradition for me. - With the Jamaican vibe, you got us-- our mouths watering. - Full on Jamaican every time. - Yes. Yes, Shaggy. Oh thank you so much.
