My Bad [Clean Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
It isn't surprising that Shaggy and Rayvon have worked together so often; both of them are toasters who like their dancehall laced with a lot of urban contemporary, pop, and hip-hop. Arguably, Shaggy is to dancehall what the late Grover Washington, Jr. was to jazz and Shania Twain is to country: a charismatic crossover star who manages to win over those who aren't necessarily into the more straight-ahead stuff. And Rayvon brings a similar outlook to My Bad, which is his first album for MCA and second overall. This 2002 release doesn't pretend to cater to dancehall purists; people who prefer the more hardcore dancehall should stick to artists like Bounty Killer, Shabba ...

It isn't surprising that Shaggy and Rayvon have worked together so often; both of them are toasters who like their dancehall laced with a lot of urban contemporary, pop, and hip-hop. Arguably, Shaggy is to dancehall what the late Grover Washington, Jr. was to jazz and Shania Twain is to country: a charismatic crossover star who manages to win over those who aren't necessarily into the more straight-ahead stuff. And Rayvon brings a similar outlook to My Bad, which is his first album for MCA and second overall. This 2002 release doesn't pretend to cater to dancehall purists; people who prefer the more hardcore dancehall should stick to artists like Bounty Killer, Shabba Ranks, and Ninjaman. But from a crossover/pop standpoint, My Bad is pleasing and highly accessible. Even if My Bad isn't quite on a par with Shaggy's best albums, it is generally likable -- anyone who has spent a lot of time listening to Shaggy will have no problem getting into fun, playful tracks like "Do You Wanna Ride" and "Playboy Bunny." Inevitably, some dancehall purists will assert that My Bad, like Shaggy's releases, is watered down -- which is the same thing that jazz purists say about Pat Metheny and country purists say about Trisha Yearwood. But complaining that Yearwood doesn't sound like Kitty Wells is mixing apples and oranges; Yearwood never said she was a country purist, and similarly, Rayvon isn't trying to convince you that he is Lieutenant Stitchie. Ideally, any genre should accommodate the more straight-ahead people as well as crossover figures -- that is, as long as the crossover material is creative. And like much of Shaggy's work, My Bad demonstrates that dancehall can have a crossover perspective and still be creative.
