Grammy-winning Jamaican artist Shaggy performed live on NBC’s Today Show at New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza this week as the latest installment of the Toyota Concert Series.

Fans formed a sea of Jamaican flags at the performance, as Shaggy took the stage with his newest single, “I Need Your Love.”

He also treated fans to his classic hits including, “It Wasn’t Me,” “Mr. Boombastic,” and “Angel.”

Shaggy’s latest album “Out of Many, One Music” won him the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album, and his new “I Need Your Love” music video has already reached over 50 million views on YouTube.

To bolster support for the event, the JTB hosted a Twitter chat with Shaggy on Monday, which resulted in over four million hashtag mentions of “#JamaicanMusic,” the JTB said.
