Latar BelakangSunting

Sting merupakan penulis lagu utama, vokalis, dan bassis untuk band rock new wave the Police dari 1977 hingga 1984, dan meluncurkan karier solo pada tahun 1985. Dia telah memasukkan unsur-unsur rock, jazz, reggae, klasik, new age, dan world beat dalam musiknya.[1]

Sebagai musisi solo dan anggota grup musik The Police, Sting telah menerima 17 Grammy Awards: ia memenangkan Song of the Year untuk "Every Breath You Take", tiga Brit Awards, termasuk Best British Male Artist pada 1994 dan Outstanding Contribution pada 2002, sebuah Golden Globe, Emmy, dan empat nominasi untuk Academy Award untuk Best Original Song. Pada tahun 2019, ia menerima BMI Award untuk "Every Breath You Take" menjadi lagu yang paling sering diputar dalam sejarah radio.[2] Pada tahun 2002, Sting menerima Ivor Novello Award untuk Prestasi Seumur Hidup dari Akademi Penulis Lagu, Komponis dan Penulis Inggris dan juga dilantik ke dalam Hall of Fame Penulis Lagu. Dia dilantik ke Rock and Roll Hall of Fame sebagai anggota Polisi pada tahun 2003. Pada tahun 2000, dia menerima bintang di Hollywood Walk of Fame untuk rekaman. Pada tahun 2003, Sting menerima Bintang Kekaisaran Britania Raya dari Elizabeth II di Istana Buckingham karena kontribusi musik yang mengharumkan negara. Dia diangkat menjadi anggota kehormatan Kennedy Center di Gedung Putih pada 2014, dan dianugerahi Hadiah Musik Polar pada 2017.[3]

Dengan Polisi, Sting menjadi salah satu artis musik terlaris di dunia. Karier solo dan dengan The Police digabungkan, ia telah menjual lebih dari 100 juta salinan rekaman.[4] Pada 2006, Paste menempatkannya di urutan ke-62 dari 100 penulis lagu terbaik.[5] Dia adalah ke-63 dari 100 artis rock terbesar VH1,[6] dan ke-80 dari 100 bintang musikal majalah Q terbaik abad ke-20.[7] Dia telah berkolaborasi dengan musisi lain dalam lagu-lagu seperti "Money for Nothing" dengan Dire Straits, "Rise & Fall" dengan Craig David, "All for Love", dengan Bryan Adams dan Rod Stewart, "You Will Be My Ain True Love" dengan Alison Krauss, dan memperkenalkan genre musik Afrika Utara ke penonton Barat melalui lagu hit "Desert Rose" dengan Cheb Mami. Pada tahun 2018, ia merilis album 44/876, sebuah kolaborasi dengan musisi Jamaika Shaggy, yang memenangkan Grammy Award untuk Best Reggae Album pada tahun 2019.
