Wow... The Story is a double album by Baby Cham, released on 24 October 2000, (see 2000 in music) and referred to by the Miami New Times as "the most anticipated album in years from any reggae artist.".[1] The album serves as an introduction to Baby Cham, one of Jamaica's dancehall artists. The first disc has previously released titles while disc two has new material. Disc one includes "The Mass" and "Funny Man", as well as the popular hits such as "Ghetto Pledge" and "Can I get A". On disc two, Cham moves away from the traditional dancehall. This disc includes "High Roller", where Cham collaborates with the dancehall artist Shaggy.
