We gave it a C+

Shaggy’s made a career out of injecting a touch of his native Jamaica into familiar tunes, and among the 13 tracks of Hot Shot are — egads! — a Caribbean version of ”Angel of the Morning” and a needless island remix of his own ”Luv Me, Luv Me.” Surprisingly, his original material is fun and hook-filled, with cuts like the Jam-Lewis-produced ”Dance & Shout” achieving a nice balance between featherweight hip-hop and the dancehall sound Shaggy grew up with.
