Serani pays homage to Jamaica on latest track
Dancehall artiste Serani shows patriotism on his latest single Somewhere in Jamaica. Due for release on February 5, the independently produced track also features Duke.
An accompanying music video is slated for February 4. “The inspiration for the song came from Chad, PP, Duke and I hanging out across the island during the summer, and as friends, we would constantly post #SomewhereInJamaica on social media.
All of our mutual friends also used the hashtag,” Serani explained. The singer added that he saw this as the perfect opportunity to help Duke with his musical debut.
“Duke is a friend of mine that I play football with. He is also a very talented freestyle rapper and he always wanted to be an artiste. So, I thought this would be the best way for me to introduce him to the world; due to the fact that the song is based on real events and experiences we’ve had over the years,” said Serani.
Over the years, Serani has collaborated with a number of acts including Ding Dong, Bugle,
Bounty Killer and Agent Sasco.
It has been a whirlwind past twelve months for Serani. Early last year, his Billboard charting single No Games was sampled by rapper Eminem in the song Farewell.
Secret, a collaboration he recorded with Burna Boy and Jeremih, was featured on Burna Boy’s Grammy-nominated album African Giant.
Additionally, No Games was last year certified gold in the United Kingdom for sales of more than 400,000 copies.
