Sting and Shaggy brought their A game for NPR's latest Tiny Desk Concert, uploaded on Wednesday (July 10). 

The duo kicked things off with Sting's 1987 track "Englishman In New York." The best part came with the re-written second verse, which fits Shaggy's homeland. "I wear my colors in my back pocket/ I got a big spliff in my hand/ And you might notice there's a swag any time I walk/ I'm a Jamaican in New York," he sang, earning a ton of cheers.

Afterwards, Sting, who played bass alongside his longtime guitarist/collaborator Dominic Miller, exclaimed, "I never sang that song before 8:00 p.m. Ever!" 

The legendary pair continued the reggae-tinged goodness with "Don't Make Me Wait" and "Shape Of My Heart," which was mashed up with Juice Wrld's "Lucid Dream," sung by Gene Noble.
