Shaggy & Kes ‘Mood’ Collaboration Teaser @ Tipsy Music Festival Miami

Written by: Overtime Media

Grammy-Award Winning, Diamond-selling, Jamaican superstar, “Shaggy” made a special guest appearance and brought out Soca star, Kees Dieffenthaller to premiere their new collaboration, “Mood” during the first-ever Tipsy Music Festival held at the Bayfront Park in Miami, Florida last weekend. The world premiere took place thanks to the grace of rising star, Teejay who brought Shaggy out to greet the massive audience and perform their new song, “Gal Dem Tyme” before Shaggy called in Kes to drop what we can only describe as a ‘feel good’, potential world anthem – categorized possibly as a bubbly dancehall soca and tentatively entitled, “Mood”.

Headlined by Afrobeats megastar, Burna Boy, the Tipsy Music Festival attracted thousands to downtown Miami and included performances by Skinny Fabulous from St Vincent, Hypasounds from Barbados, as well as Trinidad and Tobago’s own, Machel Montano: whose high-energy, nostalgic set included many of his Soca classics, as well as appearances from Voice, Farmer Nappy and Vincentian singer/songwriter, Problem Child.

The ever-popular A Team Band held their own on the big stage and backed many of these guest acts, whilst renowned Caribbean DJs such as Tony Mix, Deejay Puffy, Jus Jay and Travis World filled the interludes with a healthy Caribbean mix of music. Over 10,000 patrons assembled inside the seaside location from as early as 4 pm to enjoy the tremendous showcase of talent and as the clocks ticked toward 10 pm, the anticipation for Burna Boy’s appearance grew palpable. This, even as the crowd enjoyed Fat Boy coconut water samples and discovered other Caribbean entrepreneurs showcasing their products and services near the elevated VIP deck. Around 10.55 pm, a huge ape appeared on the main screens to start a visual intro sequence and moments later, Burna came out rapping to “Science” from his impactful 2022 Love Damani album. Fans were treated to a full hour from the African Giant as he surfed across his extensive hit catalogue and gave the assembly exactly what they came for and more. Kes and Shaggy followed through shooting scenes for the “Mood” video at the Miami Carnival parade of the bands on Sunday atop the Gen X truck.
