Serani is still singing all the way to the bank off his 2008 single “No Games.”
The Dancehall producer/artiste has scored yet another international deal with his classic single being sampled by Eminem.
Last Friday the rapper dropped his album “Music to Be Murdered By” which featured a sample of “No Games.”
The sample was featured on the track “Farewell,” which is described as one of the standout singles on the album.
According to Serani’s manager, Julian Jones Griffith, Eminem’s team contacted them several months ago.
“A third-party clearance agency contacted me about the Eminem sample a couple of months ago. We listened to the use of the sample and the full song over the phone and then we came to a very favourable decision in regard to the publishing splits on Eminem’s new track,” he said.
“Serani and I co-own the No Games master with our partner Phase One Network, and in a case where someone samples your work, they have to clear (come to a deal) both on the master side and publishing side. We were very happy with the deals we got on both sides,” he added.
Serani admits that he has been a big fan of Eminem over the years, and is grateful for the opportunity.
“As a producer, I always thought he was smart with the beats he jumped on and always had catchy hooks. So when he went with my biggest song, it makes me proud to know he and his camp respect my music enough to incorporate it within his magical artistry,” he said.
Despite seemingly relatively quite the entertainer has been putting in serious work in the last few years.
Last year the singjay scored a Grammy nomination for his feature on Burna Boy’s album African Giant with the single “Secret.”
Serani also revealed plans to drop new music in the coming weeks, via label Universal Records.
