Legendary Raggae musician Orville Richard Burell better known by stage name as Shaggy in a few days ago talked about Rihanna’s interest in working with him on her upcoming album but has however turned down the offer because he was asked to audition…
On the other hand , according to reports, Rihanna didn’t ask shaggy to do an audition.
An alleged representative for Rihanna reportedly spoke with the radio station in Jamaica and this is their side of the story :
“We are working on an album, not a talent show, so why would she (Rihanna) require Shaggy or any other artist to audition?”
The representative continued, “after Rihanna had already gathered all the material for the album, Shaggy contacted her asking to be a part of the album. She explained to him that the album was pretty much completed and they were just working on mixing, mastering and deciding which songs to actually use. However, she invited him to submit some materials so she could see if it fits with the flow of the album. That was by no means asking for an audition, it was more going out of her way to get him on the album.
Rihanna is currently in the studio working on her 9th studio album which happens to be a pure reggae project.
