Sting and Shaggy sat down with Radio Poland’s Danuta Isler ahead of their concert in Warsaw to talk about their unexpected partnership.
According to media reports, the duo first teamed up last year during Shaggy’s session at Los Angeles-based studio The Village, which was being produced by Martin Kierszenbaum.
Kierszenbaum, Sting’s current manager and formerly Shaggy’s artists and repertoire representative, had reportedly sent the British star a working version of Don’t make me Wait.
Sting took to the song, immediately leaving his Malibu home to surprise Shaggy at the recording studio.

Sting and Shaggy are scheduled to perform at London’s Royal Albert Hall on April 21 during a concert celebrating the 92nd birthday of Britains Queen Elizabeth II. (di,vb)
