Sting hailed the Grammys' return to the Big Apple with a performance tonight of his 1987 solo song "Englishman in New York." But only after joining host James Corden for a pre-taped karaoke session on a local subway. Reggae-fusion artist Shaggy, Sting's latest collaborator, was also part of the skit. A series of jaded riders were not amused by their impromptu performance.
Sting recently announced a full-length album with Shaggy, a little more than a year after he released the solo LP 57th & 9th. Titled 44/876, the Shaggy project was described as a new "collaborative, island-influenced album" in a recent news release.
