Sting and Shaggy perform on stage at Schloss Salem on July 23, 2018 in Salem, Germany.
Accompanying the song is a jubilantly colorful lyric video. Fans of the island aesthetic will want to see this. Sting and Shaggy are not afraid to have fun in the clip.
The track was recorded in various studios during the duo’s European 44/876 Tour earlier this summer, in support of their joint album of the same name, and was produced by the Grammy-nominated Martin Kierzsenbaum.
This video comes out in advance of a special limited pressing of “Skank Up (Oh Lawd)” for National Record Store Day on Nov. 24 (not to be confused with April’s Record Store Day).
