FOR THE RECORD: Shaggy says his main focus these days is on completing his next album, Out of Many One Music, and establishing his newly launched label Ranch Entertainment worldwide. And speaking of the label, he recently told Splash there's no rush to sign a host of entertainers. "We can find the artistes but it’s more about getting the label in the spotlight first. We have a verbal agreement with Tessanne Chin but no document has been officially signed off," he said. The artistes already signed to Ranch Entertainment are singer GC and New York-based deejay Red Fox. As for the upcoming album, being largely produced by Sly & Robbie, Shaggy says he is working closely with the likes of Konshens, Chronixx, Jimmy Cozier, Beres Hammond, Cocoa Tea and Ne-Yo.
