Angel by Shaggy featuring Rayvon was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, June 9, 2001 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This is a tribute to women who stick by their men through good times and bad. West Indian vocalists Rayvon and Rikrok sang on this. Shaggy helped them put together solo albums in return. The chorus is based on the lyrics and vocal melody of "Angel of the Morning," a hit for Merrilee Rush in 1968 and Juice Newton in 1981. Shaggy got the idea when Rikrok came into the studio singing it. Shaggy put the beat together before adding lyrics to this. The album sold 5.5 million copies in 2001, more than any other.
