New York, NY (Top40 Charts) "Skank Up (Oh Lawd)" is a brand-new song by Sting and Shaggy featuring dancehall music sensation Ding Dong. The track was recorded in various studios along Sting and Shaggy's critically-acclaimed European 44/876 Tour this summer as well as at Shaggy's Ranch Studios in New York. Produced by GRAMMY-nominated producer Martin Kierszenbaum (Sting, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Far East Movement), "Skank Up (Oh Lawd)" contains a sample from "Groovy Baby" by Gerry R and the E Types whose frontman, Gerry Richardson, used to be in the Newcastle-based band Last Exit with Sting. Listen to the new track and watch the lyric video on Top40-Charts!

The song melds reggae, blues and Miami Bass rhythms to create a natural and danceable extension of Sting and Shaggy's 44/876 album collaboration, which was released on April 20 via A&M/Interscope/Universal Music.

Also featured on "Skank Up (Oh Lawd)" - out this Friday, September 14, which coincides with the launch of the North American leg of their 44/876 world tour - is Jamaican artist Ding Dong whose own song "Fling Ya Shoulder" has been one of the biggest hits on the dance floor this year.

"Skank Up (Oh Lawd)" was mixed by Robert "Hitmixer" Orton (Mumford & Sons, Lana Del Rey, Paramore).

A special, limited pressing of a "Skank Up (Oh Lawd)" 7" vinyl will be released for National Record Store Day (November 24) on Cherrytree/A&M/Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada. The limited edition 45" will also include a live medley of two of Sting and Shaggy's biggest individual hits: "We'll Be Together" and "Oh Carolina."
