Serani is still doing big things with a recently Grammy nod!
Veteran Dancehall producer/artiste Serani is still making big moves after a decade of creating some of the genre’s biggest hits.
The “No Games” singer capped off 2019 by teaming up with African superstar Burna Boy on his Grammy-nominated album “African Giant.”
The two collaborated on the standout single “Secrets,” which sees Serani utilizing his warm melodic vocals to perfect effect.
The singjay has since expressed gratitude towards his association with the project.
“Just saying that I am part of an album that is nominated for a Grammy Award means a lot. When I was a child, my dream was to be a hit producer, I had no dream of being a singer,” mentioned Serani during his interview with The Star.
“So when I am part of an album with vocals, for which I have been told is one of the best songs on the album, and should be a single, it means a lot man,” he added.
Serani would go on to detail how the collaboration, explaining that it did not originally include the African pop star.
“I happened to hear the beat, through my engineer and the persons he was working with at the studio, and liked it. It sounded slightly unfinished, so I had a guitarist add to it and in no time, I had three verses recorded on the rhythm … Burna Boy was nowhere in the picture. My manager sent it to Burna Boy’s people and from there a recording relationship developed, which transpired into Secret, featured on the now Grammy-nominated album, and we are awaiting the final cut for the video,” he explained.
Burna Boy’s “African Giant” was nominated for the 62nd Grammy Awards in the Best World Music Album category.
