The British singer-songwriter and Jamaican-American rapper got together late last year, according to a post on Sting’s website, “to jam and create music that reflects their mutual love of Jamaica, its music, people and culture”. As a result of their time in the studio, “Caribbean-flavoured songs emerged,” the post says.
