Kat DeLuna Returns With "Bum Bum"
It's been a minute since we've heard from Kat DeLuna. Listen to her new jam "Bum Bum."

Shaggy threw down the gauntlet to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon announcer Steve Higgins to see who could do the best Shaggy impersonation. You would think that the man himself would have a lock on the ensuing rap battle, but his comedian rival has crazy skills. So much so that I think we have to call this round a draw. Watch the hilarious duel up top.

The Jamaican rapper is staging something of a comeback in 2015. Kat DeLuna’s new single “Bum Bum” interpolates his 2000 chart-topper “It Wasn’t Me” and Shaggy has returned to pop radio with his own rising hit “I Need Your Love.” The tropical earworm features no less than three international stars — Mohombi (Sweden), Faydee (Australia) and Costi (Romania). Check out the extremely catchy anthem below.
