In an early contender for strangest music collaboration of 2018, Sting and Shaggy have announced they have been working on new tracks together.

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.

Sting found fame with 'The Police' in the 1970s, with hits including 'Roxanne', 'Message In A Bottle' and 'Don't Stand So Close To Me', before going on to achieve success as a solo artist.

Shaggy hit the top of the UK charts with 'Oh Carolina' and 'Boombastic' in the 1990s.

The unlikely duo performed together in Jamaica today(Jan.13), at a 'Shaggy and Friends' charity concert raising money for Bustamante Hospital for Children.

A clip of fan-shot footage of that performance can be watched below.

The studio version of their first single, 'Don't Make Me Wait', will be released on February 02 this year.
