Sting and Shaggy brought their collaboration to the NPR offices recently to deliver their own “Tiny Desk Concert” performance.
The veteran rock bassist/vocalist and reggae fusion artist brought one of the songs from their 2018 collaborative studio album, 44/876, to the NPR offices with live, intimate performances of “Don’t Make Me Wait” as well as some of Sting’s solo tunes including “Englishman in New York” and “Shape of My Heart”, with the latter song mashed together with a cover of Juice WRLD‘s “Lucid Dreams”.
The two musicians were joined in their office space performance by Gene Noble, who sings on their cover of “Lucid Dream”, singer Melissa Musique, and Sting’s long-time guitarist and collaborator, Dominic Miller. Watch their entire “Tiny Desk” performance below.

Both musicians recently wrapped a run of U.K. tour dates throughout May in continued promotion of the album. Sting has a few select performances in France and Italy scheduled for later this month and again in October before heading to Las Vegas to begin his residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in May 2020.
Shaggy will also continue his own run of shows throughout the summer months and into the fall alongside UB40.
